Maple syrup is a syrup that is usually made from the xylem sap of sugar maple, red maple, or black maple trees, although it can also be made from other maple tree species. In cold climates, these maple trees store starch in their trunks and roots before the winter, and the starch is then converted to sugar that rises in the sap in the spring. Pure maple syrup has calcium and iron. Maple syrup is the first agricultural crop produced in the calendar year and the only food that is derived from plant sap.
