I bought a can of beans in maple syrup. I love maple syrup, when I tasted it however it did not taste like maple syrup but some kind of chemical. After reading the ingredients with my magnifying glass,I saw that maple syrup was listed practically at the end, preceded by modified corn starch and artificial flavour.
The food and chemical companies have been partners for a long time. They sell chemicals that are close in flavour to the real thing to Food companies who can use it more cheaply and have their food have longer shelf life than real food. Maple syrup is more costly so they put in chemicals. Practically every drink, including juices besides canned food have chemicals in them.
