Pure maple syrup offers health benefits similar to fruits and vegetables

 Bangalore, December  2017: Sugar and other sweeteners are an integral part of our diet, however, eating too much sugar can lead to lifestyle diseases like diabetes, obesity and inflammation. 100% Pure Maple Syrup from Canada is a healthier alternative to sugar and other artificial sweeteners as it is natural and pure and is an excellent source of essential nutrients. This was demonstrated during an interactive and fun afternoon hosted by the Federation of Quebec Maple Syrup Producers, Canada at Ritz Carlton in Bangalore, today.

During the course of the event, renowned nutritionist and wellness consultant Anju Sood spoke extensively about various health benefits of 100% pure maple syrup and its versatility, while Chef Palaniappan depicted how easy it is to incorporate pure maple syrup in both sweet and savoury dishes by demonstrating some easy-to-make-at-home maple recipes.

Nutrition and Wellness consultant Anju Sood said“100% pure maple syrup from Canada is already known to us as a natural sweetener. The fact that it is an excellent source of manganese and riboflavin (B2), a good source of magnesium and multiple other nutrients like calcium, potassium, sodium, copper and zinc, makes it a healthier alternative to sugar. Pure maple syrup contains a significant amount of phytohormones of the abscisic acid (ABA) family, a molecule that may help against the inset of insulin resistance which is great news for diabetics, those looking to knock off some weight as well as athletes. Simple modifications in the daily diet and regular exercise may help one in leading a healthier and a fitter life.”

Pure maple syrup is safe for moderate consumption by diabetics, weight watchers, expecting mothers and even children aged over 6 months. Several studies are also examining various health benefits of pure maple syrup, and early indications show that maple syrup may contribute to health and well-being in multiple ways.

The nutritionist also spoke about the cause for various lifestyle diseases that can be attributed to the consumption of unwanted calories in form of foods high in sugar. She highlighted the fact that sugar is addictive and love for the ‘sweet’ taste is difficult to shake off because of the physiological responses that are unique to sugar. Sugar like other addictive substances stimulates the release of a

neurotransmitter called dopamine in the brain, which produces an intensely pleasurable sensation that we then crave to repeat. It’s important to break this sweet-vicious cycle.

Therefore, instead of simply trying to cut off sweets altogether, a better approach is to switch to healthier alternatives such as 100% pure maple syrup from Canada, which is sweet and nutritive. It can be a direct healthier substitute for liquid sweeteners, such as honey, treacle and corn syrup, without any adjustments.

Popularly known as liquid gold, 100% pure maple syrup is a nutritive gourmet product that can enhance the taste and nutritive value of a dish – be it a beverage, appetizer, main course or a dessert.

 The Federation of Quebec Maple Syrup Producers does not promote an increase of sugar consumption. When choosing a sweetener for moderate use, it appears that 100% pure maple syrup from Canada has more healthful compounds compared to some other sources of sugar.
