Ask Nurse Colleen: Maple Syrup

Last weekend I attended the Powassan Maple Syrup Festival. I bought my most favorite sugar, maple syrup, from all the different vendors. I use it as my sweetener for everything, including baking. Did you know that it has half the calories refined sugar cane has? It is also the only alkaline sugar known. This is good because most of the food we eat these days is acidic. Enjoy!
