Maple syrup is produced from the sap of maple trees, while maple leaf is the iconic symbol of Canada. These products are not only delicious and appreciated all over the world, but also a testament to the country’s natural and cultural legacy.

Maple syrup, also known as maple syrup or the “liquid Gold of Quebec”, is a golden and sweet liquid obtained by collecting and processing the sap of maple trees.
Canada is the world’s leading producer of maple syrup, with the province of Quebec leading the way.

The collection of the sap takes place during the spring, when the temperatures fluctuate between freezing point and thaw, which creates the perfect conditions for the sap to flow and high-quality maple syrup to be produced.

Maple syrup is used in a wide variety of dishes and recipes, from pancakes and waffles to salad dressings and desserts. Its distinctive sweet and caramel flavor adds a special touch to food.

In addition, maple syrup also has nutritious properties, as it contains antioxidants and minerals such as manganese and zinc.

It is a more natural and healthy alternative to refined sugar, and its sustainable production reinforces Canada’s commitment to environmental conservation.
