Maple Syrup: Nutrients & Vitamins

Many nutrients are naturally found in pure maple syrup, including zinc, potassium, manganese, thiamine, calcium, iron, magnesium, and riboflavin.

Zinc is not only beneficial to heart health, but it is also an antioxidant. Zinc is also involved in important bodily functions such as cellular growth and regeneration.

Just a 1/4 cup serving of maple syrup provides 41% of your daily requirement of zinc.

A 1/4 cup of maple syrup also provides 100% of your daily requirement of manganese, which is linked to HDL, or good cholesterol, and also known for its ability to improve overall mental stability.

  • Manganese (aids in energy production)
  • Zinc (helps your immune system)
  • Calcium (great for strengthening bones and teeth)
  • Riboflavin (aids in metabolic processes)
  • Magnesium (associated with lowered risk of heart disease)
  • Potassium (helps to maintain a normal blood pressure)

Maple Syrup Grades

Maple syrup comes in two grades and four colour classes. Processed all the same way, the different colour classes of maple syrup are produced during different times of the season. This is a broad generalization but on the whole, lighter in colour and milder in flavour maple syrup is made during the early season and as the season progresses the maple syrup gets darker in colour and stronger in flavour.
