The folks at Maple Valley Co-op sent this recipe for an invigorating morning health tonic made using their maple syrup. They shared this information: “Organic maple syrup is not only a sweetener for your diet, but also a nutritious superfood, rich with 54 researched antioxidants and vital minerals that are neutral-to-alkaline-producing for the body. With a lower glycemic index, maple syrup doesn’t spike blood sugar as fast as most sweeteners, and it is naturally gluten free. Maple Valley maple syrup is certified organic and kosher, with an extra purity pledge from our farmers for vegan compliance (no butter or bacon is used for defoaming in the sugar shack evaporation process).”
