This coming week all of North America will be celebrating with Canada Day (July 1st) and the 4th of July! Family gatherings, picnics and fireworks! What better way to celebrate than with Maple Mousse and Fresh Berries! A colourful dessert made with pure maple syrup. So light and creamy, and the maple flavour tastes marvellous with wonderful fresh berries!
Maple Syrup, the sap collected from maple trees, is solely a North American product. The right type of maple trees and the necessary climate are found only in eastern Canada and north eastern United States. Canada is responsible for 80% of the world production and the US for the remaining 20%.
Pure maple syrup not only tastes amazing it's glycemic load is 54 which is less than table sugar at 65 and honey at 58. With the added benefits of antioxidants, B vitamins and minerals such as calcium, iron, magnesium and zinc maple syrup is a good sweetener to use in moderation.
