If you're looking for hydration, look a little closer to home than coconut water. Maple sap offers half the sugar, half the calories and a whole heck of a lot fewer food miles. Lorraine and Keith Harris started developing the unique beverage in 2009, experimenting with harvest timing, pasteurization processes and natural shelf life enhancers. The result - KiKi Maple Sweet Water - boasts a nutrient-dense profile, along with antioxidants and anti-inflammatory compounds. Today, you'll find Kiki beverages across Canada. A new distribution deal is expected to grow sales in the Greater Toronto Area. Meanwhile the duo is also pursuing export opportunities in China and Korea. By driving up demand for unfinished sap, Kiki could create jobs in underused sugar bushes across the province.
