Maple Syrup Products

Maple Syrup Products

Maple Syrup is one of the most ancient foods of North America. The actual origins of drawing Syrup from Maple trees is now lost in the mists of time. Indigo Herbs Organic Dark Maple Syrup is a fitting tribute to the very best examples of Maple Syrup that come from Canada. Coming in two sizes – 250ml & 425ml – this Maple Syrup is classified as 'Grade A: Very Dark & Strong Flavour'.

Before European settlers arrived in Canada the Native Peoples already knew a great deal about the Maple. The Native folk stories, legends and symbolism regarding this tree are many. One popular legend tells of how the Maple once ran thick with sugary sap all year round instead of just in winter. The story tells of how an emissary of the Grand Creator, a man called Gluskabe, found a whole encampment of people who'd given up their lives to lay beneath Maple trees and eat the sap as it fell from full branches. These people had grown fat and lazy from their indulgence and so Gluskabe used special powers granted to him to fill the Maple trees with water. This made all the sugary sap dilute and become less appetizing. Gluskabe then told the fat lazy village that they would have to hunt and fish for their survival - the sap would only run thick again during the winter months when hunting and growing vegetables was impossible.

The Maple tree was honored as being a source of food during those months when there was precious little to eat. There exists Maple ceremonies to ensure the Maple runs thick every year with offerings of tobacco incense. It was thought of as a gentle tree and was favoured for the fashioning of walking sticks. There are many more fascinating legends to do with the Maple Tree.

With its distinctively shaped leaf the Maple tree is very easy to spot. There are many trees that belong to the genus all having different characteristics throughout the Northern hemisphere. The Sugar Maple is the most common that is tapped for the production of Maple Syrup and can grow to about 45 meters. It's distinctive five pronged leaf turns a beautiful red/orange in the Autumn. The seeds of the Maple are called 'samara'; these are seeds that have the famous 'helicopter' wings that allow the seed to spin when they fall and be carried by the wind.

By adding superfoods to your daily diet you can fortify your food with super nutrition. Try replacing breakfast with a superfood smoothie. The smoothie can be made with a base of nut milk, seed milk or non-dairy milk such as rice milk, alternatively the main body of the smoothie can be created with fruit or vegetable juices.

Then additional superfood and herb powders can be added to fortify the smoothie with extra beneficial properties, the powders are largely dissolvable and can be scooped in and then blended or shaken until fully mixed in. Superfoods can be easily added to breakfast cereals such as porridge, muesli or granola. The powders, berries, grains, seeds and nuts can also be added to soups, salads, stews, curries, and used as toppings for any meal.

High in Zinc

Zinc is a metal that functions as an essential nutrient in the body, it is found in every cell and has been used since ancient times, with Ayurvedic texts dating as far back as the 14th century recommending its application in various forms.  Although only required in limited amounts, zinc supports important bodily processes like strengthening the immune system – your body needs zinc to make T-cells, a type of white blood cell that fights off foreign invaders in your bloodstream.  With antioxidant properties, zinc helps to protect the cells in the body from damage by free radicals and supports the catalytic activity of various enzymes essential in DNA synthesis and cell division.  In males, zinc assists in spermatogenesis (the production of mature spermatozoa) and is a critical mineral for robust testosterone levels, in females it aids in all the reproductive phases including the birth and lactation stages. 

Zinc is an essential component of over 300 enzymes participating in the metabolism of carbohydrates, fatty acids, proteins and other macronutrients and has a regulatory role in vitamin A transport mediated through protein synthesis.  The intake of zinc has a positive influence on bone mass, it is an important cofactor in the stimulation of bone building osteoblasts (cells that synthesize bone), it accelerates the renewal of skin cells and it is essential for healthy nails and shiny hair.  Zinc is vital for vision with high concentrations found in the retina and may also protect from night blindness and prevent the development of cataracts.  This super nutrient also plays a crucial role in memory formation and cognitive stability, ensuring a proper intake of zinc is an important step towards optimal brain function.  Topping the list of zinc rich foods are oysters, however seeds such as chia, sunflower, hemp and pumpkin are also rich sources of this important mineral.

Zinc contributes to:

·         normal DNA synthesis

·         normal acid-base metabolism

·         normal carbohydrate metabolism

·         normal cognitive function

·         normal fertility and reproduction

·         normal macronutrient metabolism

·         normal metabolism of fatty acids

·         normal metabolism of Vitamin A

·         normal protein synthesis

·         the maintenance of normal bones

·         the maintenance of normal hair

·         the maintenance of normal nails

High in Manganese

Derived from the Greek word for magic, manganese is a trace mineral that is present in tiny amounts in the body and is found mostly in the bones, liver, kidneys and pancreas.  It is essential for the proper and normal growth of the human bone structure and is a very effective mineral in aiding in the increase of the mineral density of spinal bone.  Manganese is also needed in the production and repair of connective tissue, its specific role is in the manufacture of mucopolysaccharides which are one of the main components of all connective tissues.  

Regulation of the body’s metabolism is another vital function of manganese with manganese activated enzymes helping in the metabolism of cholesterol, amino acids and carbohydrates.  Also a powerful contributor to the protection of cells from oxidative stress, manganese is a component of the antioxidant enzyme superoxide dismutase (SOD) which helps to fight free radicals.  Free radicals occur naturally in the body but can damage cell membranes and DNA, antioxidants such as SOD can help to neutralise free radicals.  Rich sources of manganese include; whole grains, nuts and nut butters and leafy vegetables.

Manganese contributes to:

·         normal energy-yielding metabolism

·         the maintenance of normal bones

·         the normal formation of connective tissue

·         the protection of cells from oxidative stress

Maple Syrup is typically tapped from Maple Trees during the winter months. Maple Trees have to be over 30 years of maturity in order for sap to be collected in decent quantity. After all the Maple sap has been collected it is taken to the 'sugar shack' to be boiled so all excess water can be evaporated. This leaves a pure thick deliciously sweet syrup that can then be bottled. Our Maple Syrup is exceptionally pure having less water in the body of the syrup (resulting in the darker thicker nature of this syrup). 

None Known. Although small servings are recommended.

Really pleased with my purchase
Really pleased with my purchase, which arrived really quickly and I was also kept updated at every stage of the process. The product is really good quality which I think is also evident from the deeper colour of the infusion. Nice woody taste and in a fresh foil sealed packet. I had previously bought some from another company and the content was predominantly all stems.
