Asarasi (ah-sir-ah-see) has developed a completely renewable and sustainable water source that adds to the world's drinkable water supply. Asarasi is pioneering the recovery and bottling of pure maple permeate waters which are currently a sugar-free, voluminous, unflavored by-product of the maple sapping industries (not Maple Water).
With nearly 1 Billion gallons of this pure, organic water available, in just maple alone, and with 30 total species of voluminous sap producing trees available worldwide, Asarasi is helping add to the world’s drinkable water supply! By purchasing the maple permeates from Maple Farmers in North America, Asarasi is helping farmers double their profits in their existing crops with little extra labor, Ensuring the integrity of our food supply in the United States and Canada!
