What is National Maple Syrup Day?

Canada, the largest supplier of Maple Syrup produces over 5 million gallons each year! As the 17th of December comes by, it is the perfect day to make pancakes, french toast or biscuits topped with delicious maple syrup as you celebrate National Maple Syrup Day.

What Is a Maple Syrup?

It is usually from the xylem sap of sugar maple, red maple or black maple trees, although it not limited to those maple species. Sap, which is formed by the starch that maple trees store in their trunks leading up to winter, is gathered by drilling holes in the trunks in late March/early April. The sweet goodness is collected using plastic tubing and/or traditional sap buckets attached to the tree and then transferred to a maple syrup production farm, also known as sugarbush or sugar wood and then boiled to perfection.

This syrup was first collected, processed and used by the indigenous peoples of North America, and as time went by, the practice of making maple syrup was adopted by European settlers who gradually refined production methods. Up until the 1930s, the United States led in maple syrup production, now Canada is the world’s largest maple syrup producer. Canadian exports of maple syrup totaled $487 million in 2016.

Maple syrup is super healthy! A 60 ml syrup contains antioxidant levels comparable to a banana or one serving of broccoli. This also contains 100% of the recommended daily allowance of manganese, 37% of recommended riboflavin, 18% of zinc, 7% of magnesium and a good 5% of calcium and potassium.
