Proven to be high in manganese, riboflavin and zinc, to name a few, in the percent of daily recommended value, maple can be used for all aspects of cooking and baking. With only 216 calories in a 60 ml portion ( ¼ cup), which is less than corn syrup and honey, maple syrup is unrefined and retains the inherent nutritional value of the maple sap obtained from the maple tree.
