Quebec's Strategic Maple Syrup Reserve

Canada 10

The global demand for maple syrup has grown to such an extent that Canadian producers have started to stockpile it in order to meet demand while still maintaining price stability. Just outside of Quebec City the two stockpiles, officially called the International Strategic Reserve, contain almost 8 million kilograms of syrup.

We have a stockpile of what now?

8 million-kilograms of syrup? How many calories is that?

Twenty-seven point six billion Calories (kcal). Enough to feed 13.9 million people for a day, if that is all they ate--or 38,000 people for a year. (Assuming a 2,000 Calorie diet.)

Just don't eat the bread in your main plate to balance out your caloric intake.
