“If maple syrup is tree blood, can vegans and vegetarians eat it?”

“Maple syrup is tree blood” is a saying from at least the 1990s and 2000s. “If maple syrup is tree blood, can vegans and vegetarians eat it?” is a jocular saying that has been printed on an image.

“Can vegans eat maple syrup? Isn’t it kinda like tree blood?” was posted on Twitter on December 12, 2013. “If Maple Syrup Is Tree Blood Does That Mean Vegans Cant Eat It?” was posted on Twitter on November 27, 2014.


Wikipedia: Maple syrup
Maple syrup is a syrup usually made from the xylem sap of sugar maple, red maple, or black maple trees, although it can also be made from other maple species. In cold climates, these trees store starch in their trunks and roots before winter; the starch is then converted to sugar that rises in the sap in late winter and early spring. Maple trees are tapped by drilling holes into their trunks and collecting the exuded sap, which is processed by heating to evaporate much of the water, leaving the concentrated syrup.
