Fructosyl oligosaccharides, including fructo-oligosaccharide (FOS), are gaining popularity as functional oligosaccharides and have been found in various natural products. Our previous study suggested that maple syrup contains an unidentified fructosyl oligosaccharide. Because these saccharides cannot be detected with high sensitivity using derivatization methods, they must be detected directly. As a result, an analytical method based […]Continue reading "Separation of Fructosyl Oligosaccharides in Maple Syrup by Using Charged Aerosol Detection"
Abstract Maple syrup is a sweet-tasting product prepared by boiling and concentrating the sap of sugar maple (Acer saccharum March). Because of its potential health benefits (except for people with diabetes and those with blood sugar problems), desirable flavor, and taste, maple syrup is one of most popular natural products in the world. Maple syrup fundamentally consists […]Continue reading "Chemical composition and mineralogical residence of maple syrup: A comprehensive review"
A sports drink containing maple syrup is well appreciated during prolonged exercise and appears to be a viable alternatives to more common sources of carbohydrates.Continue reading "Ingestion of maple-based and other carbohydrate sports drinks: effect on sensory perceptions during prolonged exercise"
2. Maple Syrup That’s right, Canada’s pride and joy (no, not Celine Dion this time) is believed to have anti-inflammatory properties, according to a University of Rhode Island study. Um, how exactly? “Scientists have identified more than 67 different plant compounds, or polyphenols, nine of which are unique to pure maple syrup. One of these polyphenols, […]Continue reading "6 Anti-inflammatory Foods You Should Be Eating"
