Today is National Maple Syrup Day and the best way to start this perfect day off is to begin the day with pancakes, french toast or biscuits topped off with delicious maple syrup.

Maple syrup is made by tapping sugar maple trees, then boiling the sap top reduce a thick syrup. Most maple syrup is produced on Canada.

Is maple syrup healthy?

The bottom line is even though maple syrup does contain some nutrients and antioxidants, it is also very high in sugar.

Calorie for calorie, maple syrup is a very poor source of nutrients compared to whole foods like vegetables, fruits and unprocessed animal foods.

Replacing refined sugar with pure, quality maple syrup is likely to yield a net health benefit, but adding it to your diet will just make things worse.

Maple syrup is a less bad version of sugar, much like coconut sugar. It cannot objectively be labeled healthy.

If you consume it, it’s best to do so in moderation — as with all sweeteners.
