I'd guess that as maple syrup comes from trees (doesn't it? ) it would be fructose. Stick to small amounts and not everyday would be my advice. You have to be REALLY sensitive to fructose to not be able to eat any...most of us are fine with small amounts (i.e. don't eat a jar of honey at one time! ).
Peppermint capsules and the tea aren't the same...for one, the heat of the tea helps along with the peppermint.
