Maple Water: The Coconut Water for Locavores?

Vertical Water sources its maple water from New York state with help from forestry researchers at Cornell University. Michael Farrell, director of Cornell’s Uihlein Forest in Lake Placid, said in a Cornell press release that maple water has naturally occurring minerals that are good for your bones—calcium, magnesium, and manganese—as well as potassium, which helps lower blood pressure.

Is This The New Coconut Water?

Produced with help from research and technology developed by Cornell University, Vertical Water is basically maple water — sap from maple trees that forms when water is absorbed by the trees’ roots and filtered upward through the trunk (hence the name). Along the way, the water picks up a small amount of sugar, as well as a number of nutrients, including electrolytes like magnesium and potassium.


New maple water drink has untapped potential

It is being touted as one of nature’s best-kept secrets and a sweet opportunity to tap the potential of New York’s extensive forest network – it’s maple water. Produced by nature, bottled by Feronia Forests and aided in several ways by Cornell, the new product, Vertical Water, is being rolling out nationwide in stores beginning in April.


Maple water is delicious and refreshing; we don’t need to market it as a magic elixir, says Vertical Water

Conversations about maple water typically start with what it isn’t, says Vertical Water co-founder Valentina Cugnasca. It’s not ‘watered-down’ maple syrup (quite the opposite in fact – maple syrup is made by boiling up maple water); it’s not sticky; and it’s not even that sweet.
