Frequently Asked Questions
What is the difference between Pure Grade A and Grade B Maple Syrup?

Both the color and the maple flavor are a bit stronger and more intense than the lighter maple syrup. This versatile and most popular grade is great as a topping and for cooking. Its strong maple flavor also lends itself to meat glazes, cooking recipes, and atop of waffles, pancakes, or oatmeal. -
Grade A Very Dark (formerly Grade B) Strong Taste Maple Syrup: Used primarily as a commercial ingredient, this dark syrup presents a strong maple flavor. This maple syrup grade is very popular among food manufacturers. Produced last in the sugaring season, this maple syrup is exceptionally robust.
