All About Maple
Deliciously Wholesome, Versatile Maple
Pure enjoyment. Healthy indulgence. A versatile ingredient. Maple syrup is all this and so much more. Syrup from the sugar maple tree has delighted generations of families with its wholesome sweetness and delectable mouthfeel. At the same time, they may not have realized its nutritional value, or its versatility in a variety of foods and beverages. Today, consumers love maple as an alternative, clean label sweetener they can find in exciting and, sometimes, surprising foods and beverages.
Maple Sweetness vs. "Other" Sweeteners
Because maple syrup and sugar are not highly refined like traditional cane sugar, they retain their inherent minerals, antioxidants and bioactive plant compounds. Maple carries a healthy halo with consumers, since it’s lower in sweetness, calories and glycemic index than traditional sugars and high fructose corn syrup, and it doesn’t have the undesirable chemical aspects of artificial sweeteners.
A Healthier Sweetener with a Clean Label
When it comes to wholesome goodness, sweetness from maple is the smart choice. Maple syrup is chock-full of minerals, antioxidants (54, to be exact!) and bioactive plant compounds.
With a lower glycemic index than cane sugar, maple syrup is a healthier alternative than many other sweeteners and is a perfect choice for clean label products.
Versatile Maple in a Variety of Applications
Maple syrup is more than a cozy breakfast — or autumn — ingredient or flavor. Welcome to the versatile sweetness and flavor that reaches across menu items from morning ‘til after hours, every day of the year. In addition to its breakfast staple status, maple can be your secret ingredient in appetizers, beverages, baked goods & candy, dairy, meat & seafood products enjoyed throughout the day.
