Scientists have found that maple syrup’s natural phenol's (antioxidant compounds) inhibit two carbohydrate-hydrolysing enzymes that are relevant to Type 2 diabetes. In the study, 34 new beneficial compounds in pure maple syrup were discovered,five of which have never been seen in nature [I]. Among the five new compounds discovered is quebecol, a compound created when the maple sap is boiled to create syrup.
