Tapping into the tree water trend
Drinking tree water has played a crucial role in how indigenous communities have remained hydrated for millennia, but for the rest of us, tree water has emerged as a big trend of 2016 with new birch sap and maple water drinks springing (or is that sprouting?) up all over the place.
DRINKmaple is a maple water brand that is produced or ‘collected’ by simply tapping maple trees – a process that doesn’t harm the plants and allows the nutrient dense water to run into buckets. The organic maple water is then bottled without anything being added or taken away and without any boiling.
Unlike maple syrup the tree’s water isn’t high in sugar, in fact maple water has only about half the sugar of coconut water (less than 1.5g per 100ml), but does contain 46 other nutrients, including more manganese than a cup of kale – a nutrient which plays an important role in our bodies’ energy systems.
