A Tradition Of Sustainability - "The Maplers"

As winter turns to spring, maple forests begin to stir. When the days warm but the nights still freeze, maple sap starts to run. For centuries, "maplers" have tapped the clear sap with no harm to the trees or the environment.* The sap is boiled down to enhance its natural sweetness while retaining the rich minerals which make maple a natural, low-glycemic, gluten-free, nutrient-rich superfood.

*Sugar cane is often burned at harvest, raising much debate about its environmental impact.
