Maple Syrup Grades

Pure maple syrup is graded according to Federal USDA regulations, and is based on both color and flavor.

This year the grading system has gotten a facelift.  If you haven't checked out our blog post about the new grades and would like to.  Please click here.

Here are the new grades;

Golden Color, Delicate Taste. This light syrup has the mildest maple flavor and is usually made early in the season.

Amber Color, Rich Taste. Still light in color, this syrup has a more full-bodied maple flavor.

Dark, Robust Taste. This syrup is for those who prefer a substantially stronger maple flavor.

Very Dark, Strong Taste. This bold flavored syrup is ideal for cooking and baking, and is made late in the season

As to which grade is the best?  That depends on personal taste.  Jim likes the more lighter grades.  Where I (Angel) perfer the more bold darker flavors.
