Maple Sap Water

What is Maple (Sap) Water? Maple water is a clear liquid that flows from maple trees for a short time in early spring. Also known as sap, maple water goes through a natural process that infuses it with nutrients. In early spring, maple trees pull water from the ground and filter it through their roots. This water collects nutrients stored in the tree all winter, and provides hydration and nourishment that enables the tree’s growth and rejuvenation in the spring renewal season. ①Maple sap is essentially groundwater that has passed through a tree’s circulatory system, becoming enriched with a medley of vitamins and minerals (46, to be exact) in the process.②

What does it taste like? People who drink maple water benefit from phytochemicals and hydration, while enjoying a slightly sweet, faintly woodsy taste. ①Taste great chilled.

What are the health benefits? As the maple sap flows from the roots and through the tree, it picks up both sugar and trace amounts of minerals, including calcium, potassium, manganese, and magnesium. ⑤

Maple water manufacturers claim the product contains polyphenols, which are plant-based compounds that can have a variety of health-promoting effects in the body. ⑤ Research from the University of Rhode Island found maple water contained at least 34 compounds that could be beneficial to human health.

Maple water manufacturers also claim it is naturally full of 46 nutrients that include vitamins,minerals, polyphenols, prebiotics, electrolytes, amino acids and antioxidants. Contains natural electrolytes, naturally low calories, half of the sugar of coconut water, no added sugars or preservatives.③ New research has shown that maple water contains the unique organic acid Abscisic acid (ABA). ABA encourages insulin homeostasis meaning it may help with blood sugar control. Maple water has more manganese that a cup of kale, manganese may help with thyroid health, bone strength, blood sugar control, anti-inflammatory benefits, absorption of vitamins and magnesium, which is extremely important for muscle function, and anti-oxidant activity-cleans up damaging free radicals in the body.③

How is it bottled? Natural root filtered, gently pasteurized. Shelf life of at least 1 year⑤. Refrigerate after opening.

Is it organic? Maple water is almost inherently organic—there is little reason to spray maple forests with pesticides or herbicides—though so far, just a few of the companies hawking maple water have actually gone through the process of having their product certified organic.② Gluten-free. Dairy-free. Vegan. Non-GMO.③
