Maple water from Québec has its own quality certification called NAPSI, established by the Federation of Québec Maple Syrup Producers to ensure authenticity and quality. This seal guarantees consumers always enjoy crisp, crystalline maple water, just as it came out of the tree. NAPSI is an acronym that describes the qualities of maple water from Québec:
Authentic – coming directly from nature through maple trees
Pure – with no additives or ingredients
Sterile – containing no micro-organisms
Integral – whole, unrefined and with all the compounds that nature gave it
Harvested in the spring, sterilized and packaged in Tetra Paks®, and requiring no refrigeration before opening, maple water can be stored for over 18 months at room temperature – meaning you can sip its subtle sweetness year-round! Maple water is available in grocery stores under the Seva, Oviva™, Wahta and Necta brands.
