For years, maple syrup has been used by those who want a sweet treat without eating all the refined white sugar and fructose so commonly seen in processed candies and baked goods. Now, people are looking at another product of the maple tree for health benefits. Maple water is the purest form of sap, which runs through the maple trees and it’s being called the next ‘wonder water’ (remember aloe and coconut waters?).
Maple water is said to contain antioxidants and minerals beneficial for helping thyroid function and balancing sugar levels, but this food is so new that the science isn’t exactly solid. More research will need to be done to confirm these health claims but in the mean time, maple lovers can enjoy this sweet, natural hydration drink.
