Does Maple Syrup contain Trans Fats?
Maple Syrup is produced from concentrating the sap of maple trees. Maple syrup is predominantly carbohydrate and does not contain any fat, including trans fats.
Why doesn’t McLure’s list Trans Fats on their Nutritional Labels?
Maple syrup qualifies for the “simplified” nutritional panel format. Since no claim is made about fat, fatty acid or cholesterol content, and the amount of trans fat is less than .5 grams, declaration of trans fat is not required
In compliance with the FDA’s trans fat labeling rule, McLure’s currently meets the requirements for the simplified format.
