Refresh with maple water and birch water

Two fresh new alternatives to coconut water

Refreshing, nutritious and naturally sweet, coconut water is big business, with seemingly dozens of brands popping up in supermarkets and cafes all over Australia. Now, there are two new plant waters set to be the next big thing: birch water and maple water, both of which offer a light, delicious taste and similar nutritional benefits to their coconut relative.

“Birch water is the sap found from birch trees and it currently found in some Asian, Scandinavian and Eastern Europe countries. Maple water is the sap found from the maple tree,” explains Sanchia Parker, Accredited Practising Dietitian.

“Both drinks have a subtle, sweet taste, offering various vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. Both drinks are low in kilojoule, low in added sugar and naturally sweet, making them perfect plant water alternatives for those who are wanting to try something new.”
