Maple Sap Water Profile

So I have tapped a couple of maple trees and plan to use the sap in place of all the water for mashing and sparge. I did some googling around and I came up with an average mineral profile of the sap to be around Ca 41  Mg 7  Na 35  S04 5  Cl 90  HCO3 140  The PH was 6.14 and the OG was 1.008.
I am wondering if anyone else has looked into this and what did they come up with?
