Maple Nutritional and Storage Information

Maple syrup contains 68% carbohydrates, while most other syrups contain 100%. While it has virtually the same calorie content as white cane sugar (50 calories/Tbsp), maple syrup contains significant amounts of calcium (20 mg/Tbsp) and potassium (35 mg/Tbsp), small amounts of iron and phosphorous, and trace amounts of B vitamins. Its sodium content is low (2 mg/Tbsp).

Store maple syrup in your freezer to retain flavor and quality over an indefinite period of time. The syrup will not freeze solid and will require only about one hour at room temperature to bring it to pouring consistency. The amount required can be removed from the container, and the remainder may be returned to the freezer.
If, after extended storage, mold should form on the surface of the syrup, the original quality can be restored. Remove the mold, heat the syrup to boiling, skim the surface, sterilize the container, and refill it with the syrup.
