This is probably a dumb question, but what the heck, I'm honest ;)

Is maple sugar candy safe to eat? Isn't it just made of pure maple sugar? My mom got me some in Vermont and it says it is fresh made and not cystallized (I assume that meant to say crystallized?).

I hope it's good - I can't wait to eat it!

two things........it depends on the facilities...it could be contaminated from other products, though I guess the chances of that are relatively slim. Second, you can never assume with these things......who knows if they add wheat or something. Is there a label you can consult or a number to call? Better to be safe than sorry.

:D do call about the candy, but i just needed to add that maple syrup candy is my all time favorite candy--my uncle used to make it himself from the maple syrup that he spent hours making too--i remember the pails hanging from the trees and the sap dripping into them and then him boiling it down---maple syrup candy is probably my favorite candy that we had at christmas as a child--mmmmmmmm--deb :lol:

We urge all doctors to take time to listen to your patients.. don't "isolate" symptoms but look at the whole spectrum. If a patient tells you s/he feels as if s/he's falling apart and "nothing seems to be working properly", chances are s/he's right!

thank you. there was nothing but an address on it. says it's 100% pure, so i tried some and was okay. Probably wasn't a smart thing to do without checking first, but I couldn't help myself :P

Donna,

I live in VT and if you tell me the company I can probably tell you. Do you have to avoid lactose too? If so, just be ware that some places process their syrup with cream or butter. Not a lot, but some people claim they have been effected by it....
