What Exactly is Maple Water?
Maple water is pure sap from the maple trees. It’s a common misconception that all sap is sticky. Maple sap actually looks and feels just like regular water. The main difference is that maple water goes through a natural process that infuses it with nutrients. In early spring, maple trees pull water from the ground and filter it through their roots. This water collects nutrients stored in the tree all winter and provides hydration and nourishment that enable the tree’s growth and rejuvenation in the spring renewal season.
So How is Maple Water Made?
Trees produce sap most of the year, but it’s only during the spring thaw that conditions are just right to harvest maple sap. In March and April, when the temps are warm during the day and below freezing at night, Drink Simple taps the trees and collect the nutrient-packed water. The changing temperatures create natural pressure changes that allow sap to flow out of the tree. As soon as temperatures stay above freezing, the sap stops flowing and the season is over.
From there, they take the maple water and sterilize it to kill off yeast and pathogens, but all the minerals, polyphenols, and antioxidants (aka The Good Stuff), remains from the pure maple sap. They don’t add anything, and it’s not a byproduct from making maple syrup. In fact, the folks that work in the sugar houses have been drinking maple sap to stay hydrated during sugaring season for decades!
Oh, and did we mention it’s totally harmless to the trees? It actually can help incentivize landowners to keep healthy forests on their lands! Maple syrup requires 40 gallons of sap to create 1 gallon of syrup, with this maple water 1 gallon of sap produces 1 gallon of maple water so a farmer’s harvest can have a much more significant economic impact for their operation.
