University of Rhode Island

The open ocean is the largest and least explored environment on Earth, estimated to hold up to a million species that have yet to be described.

USDA Funds Maple Syrup Research at University of Rhode Island

University of Rhode Island

The study, titled “Beneficial effects of maple syrup phytochemicals against inflammation associated with metabolic syndrome,” aims to evaluate the anti-inflammatory effects of a polyphenol-enriched maple syrup extract in mice fed a high-fat diet and in human fat cell samples. Slitt and Seeram began studying the anti-inflammatory properties of maple syrup phytochemicals a decade ago and identified or confirmed 67 compounds in pure maple syrup that may play a key role in human health.
