Recently this lovely package with their product arrived on my doorstep!
“SEVA Maple Water is 100% pure maple sap, the clear and nourishing water that flows naturally from maple trees each spring.” ~ SEVA
Imagine drinking maple sap that is full of electrolytes, amino & organic acids, phytohormones and antioxidants! The sap is from Quebec maple trees and has no additional preservatives, sugar or water.
But how does it taste? I have to say, I did not find it had much flavour. There is a natural sweetness to it but it is very subtle. I personally did not find it tasted like maple but one thing I really liked is that it was thin and not oily like coconut water is. It also has less sugar and and calories.
The big test was going to be Reg’s response. Coconut water truly does help him after his workouts so if I was going to consider replacing coconut water with maple water, he had to have the same positive response to it.
And he did! No headaches after his workouts and he loves the taste of it. He wanted to drink it straight whereas I would have just added it to our smoothies.
You impress Reg? You impress me!
I was worried about the environmental impact on the trees but was relieved to find out that the sap is 100% renewable product that is sustainably harvested. They do not use machines that harmfully impact the trees. They just take what the trees have to offer without hurting the trees. Good!
I definitely think SEVA Maple Water is way more pleasant to drink than any coconut water I have had so far. It has a very subtle taste with huge medicinal benefits and is a Canadian product that does not harm the environment. Most of all, it helps Reg’s quality of life and keeps him working out without pain which means a lot to me.
Check here to see if you can find SEVA Maple Water near you. Product retails for $4.99 for the 1L and $2.49 for the 330ml which is very comparable to the coconut water we have been getting. Next time I am at Whole Foods I am absolutely picking up a 1L container.
I give this product five out of five wooden spoons. Great product that is environmental-friendly, a fair price and healthy-to-boot. I have zero complaints! How rare, LOL.
