Canadian Maple Syrup

The majority of the world’s maple syrup is produced right here in Canada!  Though we could have stuffed this into another category, this Canadian icon deserved a page all on its own.

Canadian Maple Syrup Grades

Grade A Golden – the lightest maple syrup, smooth with subtle maple flavour. Used for maple candies.
Grade A Amber – rich in flavour but smooth and sweet. Used for pancakes.
Grade A Dark – a stronger syrup for maple lovers. Used for sauces or dessert toppings.
Grade A Very Dark – very thick, has the most intense maple flavour. Used for baking.

Grade A maple syrup is produced early in the season and is known for being lighter in colour. Grade A is the most preferred by consumers. Grade B maple syrup is produced later on in the season and is known for being darker, thicker viscosity, more robust maple flavor and more minerals.
