A New find for me. First I've never heard of this never mind even seeing it anywhere, but as for taste, I'm assuming it's going to be sweet. If this isn't true Canadian, what is?
Maple water is apparently the NEW coconut water some are claiming. There is also debate if this is just a "healthy" new drink trend of the year.
For the record I am not a huge coconut water fan based on its taste. I do though have one I like a lot because it's flavoured with mango purée and that's from Happy Planet. I've blogged about that last year. It's terrific in my opinion. I have tried a few others with pineapple in it and I found them pleasant too.
Now comparing & tasting this Maple Water. I'm not liking it as much but putting it in my shake this am worked out better than on its own. I would probably buy it again but I wouldn't drink it straight up like I do with the Happy Plant product I mentioned.
My opinion is I do not believe neither coconut water or maple water provides the right balance of electrolytes to support high or long activity levels. But I do believe they both are great options to supplement the diet based on their vitamin and mineral content and health benefits. If you are a fan of either, then my verdict is just enjoy the drink for what it is. No harm done with getting in a ton of extra nutrients in a refreshing glass of either.
Below is Seva's website post and below that are other websites giving their opinions. I encourage you to check them out. I found it interesting. You may too, especially if you are a coconut water fan or just curious about Maple Water.
Here is what some have been saying about this NEW super drink
But as awesome as maple syrup is, there’s a new reason to be excited about spring sap. Turns out you can drink maple sap (or maple water) itself, and a few companies like Seva, Oviva and Maple3 are now selling it as a lower-calorie and better-tasting alternatives to coconut water.
