Pure Canadian Maple Syrup 500ml / 16.9 fl.oz. Jug Grade A Dark (Robust Taste). At Maple Syrup Direct all our products are 100% natural and contain no added preservatives or flavours. Maple syrup is made from the simple process of boiling down the sap from sugar maple trees naturally found in Canada.
Maple syrup can last in its bottle for a minimum of 3 years unopened although it is advised to refrigerate after opening. As an alternative to processed sugar maple syrup also has a number of health benefits and can aid a healthy lifestyle when used as part of a balanced diet. To substitute maple syrup for white refined sugar simply use 3/4 of the same amount you would normally use.
It has been shown through research by the USDA (United States Department Of Agriculture) that maple syrup contains a number of compounds. Every 100 gram serving of maple syrup contains 7% of the RDA of calcium, 6% of the RDA of potassium, 7% of the RDA of iron, 28% of the RDA of zinc, and a massive 28% of the RDA of manganese, making it a great alternative to processed sugar. Maple syrup also contains a number of antioxidants which can help prevent cancer, boost the bodies immune system and slow the signs of ageing.

When choosing maple syrup always opt for real natural maple syrup and not maple syrup substitutes or products labelled as “pancake syrup” as these are generally maple flavoured syrup and do not have any of the health benefits that real maple syrup has.
