What is the Science Behind Maple?
Aside from bringing joy with the sugary taste of maple products, there are studies by researchers about maple as a beneficial food for human health.
There are researchers who have discovered how nutritious maple can be.
A study indicated that 100% pure maple syrup has nutritious vitamins and minerals. Four cups of it are essential for our daily nutritional needs for manganese (72%), riboflavin (27%), copper (17%) and calcium (6%). It also contains 78.2 milligrams of polyphenol that is helpful in treating dietary issues, weight management, neurodegenerative diseases, and even diabetes.
In addition, a daily intake of maple syrup on your regular breakfast plate can help you gain all the essential nutrients that are good for your daily routine. The sugar content of maple can add more to the energy levels you can generate to sustain your physical, mental, and physiological activities. A good amount of sugar is also necessary to keep the brain from degenerating.
Even if there are certain limits in taking in maple to our body, it doesn’t hurt to get a good amount of it throughout our daily meals. However, most food researches believe that maple syrup and other maple products are better taken at the busiest times of the day, especially during breakfast.
More researches in the US and Canada are being taken in order to fully tap the nutrition potential of maple in our daily food intake. More surprises about maple may come in as new discoveries are formed around it.
