Benefits of Maple Syrup
Maple syrup goes beyond just great taste. I call it the sweet perks of maple syrup because it contains antioxidants, fights inflammatory diseases, and contains zinc and manganese. Zinc is going to boast your immune system and the manganese will help speed up your metabolism, which is something you can’t say about sugar.
When cooking with maple syrup, I recommend a premium syrup aged in an oak whisky barrel which gives it a delicious taste. My go-to syrup is Mission Maple Syrup which is sustainably tapped from trees from a protected forest in the Berkshires and I love the fact that a portion of the proceeds go to teaching the younger generation about conservation. This is a syrup with a great mission and a delicious taste…a perfect and healthy alternative to sugar.
