Maple Syrup

Even though maple syrup does contain some nutrients and antioxidants, it is also very high in sugar. Calorie for calorie (and sugar gram for sugar gram), maple syrup is a very poor source of nutrients compared to “real” 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… kind of like honey and coconut sugar. That does NOT make it healthy.

Same as with all sugar-based sweeteners, if you’re going to eat it, make sure to do so in moderation only.
