Birch syrup

Birch syrup is made in much the same way as marple syrup. Sap is harvested during springtime from birchtrees, starting in early April. The sap is reduced using reverse osmosis and evaporation to remove the water. Leaving the sugar and minerals naturally contained in sap. It takes 100 - 140 litres of sap to produce only 1 l of syrup. The syrup is finally filtered before packaging in bottles.


Our sap is harvested in our own forests, that you find out in the archipelago of Kvarken, a little bit north of Vaasa, Finland.


Birch syrup contains only natural sugars, mostly fructose and glucose. We add no sugar to the syrup. You also find a rich variety of minerals of which the most abundant are calcium, potassium and manganese. In addition it also contains betulin and betulinic acid together with several anti-oxidants.

Use:

The taste of birch syrup is complex and significantly different from the taste of maple syrup. You will find it is an excellent flavouring for different kinds of meat, salmon, marinades and sauces.

In marinades for meat add about 0,5 dl of syrup, leaving it for at least 4 hours.  Another use is with fish such as salmon or trout. Drip one tablespoon of syrup over the fish fillet, pan fry or barbecue with salt and pepper. For sauces use 1 - 2 tablespoons adding a savory condiment.
