Birch Syrup is a truly unique flavor from Alaska's forests - and quite rare. At this time there is little commercial production of birch syrup anywhere else in the world. The predominant, naturally occurring sugar in birch syrup is fructose, as opposed to maple which contains primarily sucrose. Birch syrup is high in vitamins and minerals, including vitamin C, potassium, manganese, thiamin, and calcium. Tapping the trees does not injure them as it will take only 10-15% of the total sap production of the tree. One tap per tree limit; and each tree is given a two year rest between tappings.
