Maple Syrup Helps to Keep Warm in Cold Weather

    Maple syrup tastes sweet and delicious. It is a nutritious alternative to refined sugar. I think drinking a tablespoon of maple syrup can make you feel warm during a very cold weather.

    It will certainly give you a warm & fuzzy feeling just from the taste of it.

    Maple syrup is a big early springtime business here in Indiana. Unfortunately, this past winter was so warm that the maple sap isn't running right for production so supply is likely to be low.

    Does Malaysia get "very cold weather"?
    Sugar won't make you feel warm, if anything it will drive your body's system to the gut and draw resources away from your extremities and make you feel colder.

    Maple syrup is a topping. Poured over a big, steaming stack of pancake, it may indeed warm you, at least temporarily. Pour it over a big bowl of vanilla ice cream and you will more likely feel a bit chilled as a result. Drink it straight up and you might be warmed by feelings of disgusting sweetness akin to drinking pure corn syrup. Or you might just feel nauseated.

    Despite living in New England (maple syrup is big here,) I rarely use it. Not real big on maple flavor, in general. Every once in a while, if the pancakes are really dry, I will add maple syrup to the butter topping, but it is only under duress. Don't like maple candy and detest maple walnut ice cream (a standard around here.)

    I have been to a couple of Vermont maple sugar houses when the sap is running. They collect sap from the trees and boil it down to a syrup in the sugar houses. The smells are good and you are usually pretty deep in the middle of the woods because that is where they locate the sugar houses. The flavor of real maple syrup varies quite a bit by maker due to a variety of variables, including the trees, the soil, the conditions, temps, etc. Real maple syrup lovers around here have a favorite maker, though even their product varies slightly in taste from year to year.

    Same here. Don't care for maple syrup, at all. My wife and kids love it a lot. By the way, you should try birch syrup. It's less sweet and has a stronger flavor (different from maple syrup flavor though).

    Have never heard of birch syrup. Will have to look for it and try it!

    Canadian researchers have proven that maple syrup in conjunction with antibiotics vastly boosts one's immune system. A Canadian pharmaceutical company is now marketing the active ingredient in maple syrup in pill form.
    This pill reduces the amount of antibiotics that one needs to fight off infections by 75%.

    Sounds like what they're doing with manuka honey and green lipped mussels.
