Maple syrup is a sweet liquid made from boiled sap of maple trees.
Maple syrup’s sugar content is primarily sucrose, which small amounts of glucose and fructose. It is a significant source of riboflavin (vitamin B2), zinc, and manganese, and contributes smaller amounts of calcium, iron, magnesium, and potassium. Maple syrup also contains polyphenols with antioxidant activity.
Maple syrup is a distinct product from maple-flavoured and table syrup.
