What is Maple Water?
Maple water is the natural maple sap that flows from a maple tree during a short time in early spring (March or April). It is loaded with 46 minerals, polyphenols being one of them.
Hold on, I'm pretty sure it is regular water with a touch of maple syrup in it, isn't it??
We hear that very frequently! You are not alone. Maple Water is 100% pure maple sap, nothing is added and nothing is removed.
Is Maple Water high in sugar and calories?
It contains only 2g of sugar and 10 calories per 100ml. Compared to coconut water, which contains 5g and 25 calories per 100ml and additives, maple water is better for you health!
Don't drink too much Maple Water, you will get a stomach ache!
No no, don't worry, you will not get a stomach ache or anything of that nature. Before maple water was a thing, people would drink maple sap from the buckets that were left on each tree to collect the water....problem was, the water was left all week and bacteria would grow in the sap, hence the stomach ache.
Ok, so how do you process the maple water so that does not happen?
Once the maple sap is collected, it goes through a microfiltration at the farm to remove any bark or dirt. It is then immediately tested for various bacteria and then trucked in 30,000 liters tankers to the packing facility. Once there, the water is once again tested and if all checks, it is UHT sterilized, which is high heat for 5-7 seconds and then cooled and packaged.
All this needs to be done within 20 hours to ensure the water is perfect for consumption!!!!
Choosing to drink Maple Water instead of regular soda can save you as much as what calories?

Fruit juice concentrates contain added sugar and calories. True or False?
True. Sweeteners that add calories to a beverage have many different names and are not always obvious on the ingredients list. If any of these appear in the ingredients list of your favorite beverage, you are drinking a sugar-sweetened beverage: high-fructose corn syrup, fructose, fruit juice concentrates, honey, sugar, syrup, corn syrup, sucrose, and/or dextrose.
FACT : Pure Maple Water is 100% Pure and does NOT contain any added sugar!
