How Maple Water is Harvested
Canada’s province of Quebec, and particularly the great Laurentian Forest, is one of the largest producers of maple water in the world. This water is tapped from sugar maple trees at the beginning of each spring.
Pure Maple Water is natural water harvested directly from Canadian maple trees. In cold weather, water is drawn up into the branches of the tree to protect the tree during Canada’s harsh winters. Then, during the warmer weather in the spring, the water flows back down into the trunk of the tree. It is collected through a special kind of tap placed into the tree known as a “spile.” What comes out of the tree is clear, pure water imbued with subtle sweet maple flavour and containing all the natural, organic nutrients and minerals collected as a result of its long journey through the tree.
Maple trees are not harmed by the tapping process, ensuring that companies can extract the water without destroying the source. Pure Maple Water is a sustainably harvested, 100% renewable product, following strict harvesting guidelines to protect the trees. The product is NAPSI certified and certified Organic by EcoCanada.
