Pure maple syrup and sugar is made from the sap of maple trees and is made by evaporating the sap until only pure maple syrup remains.  Maple syrup is further evaporated until only the sugar remains.  It takes between 30 and 50 gallons of sap to produce one gallon of syrup and one gallon of syrup to produce seven pounds of maple sugar.  This is an all natural process with no chemicals, additives or any other foreign substance used.  The syrup and sugar are 100% pure.

MAPLE SYRUP

Pure maple syrup is sold by grades established by the U.S. Department of Agriculture.  It is graded by color and flavor.  The difference between grades is a matter of taste preference, NOT a quality distinction.  All grades are the same weight.
