Did You Know

Maple syrup was first made and used by the indigenous peoples of North America. European settlers adopted the practice and gradually they refined production methods.

Technological improvements in the 1970s further refined syrup processing. The Canadian province of Quebec is by far the largest producer, responsible for 70 percent of the world’s output

Maple syrup is graded according to the Canadian, United States, or Vermont scales. Each scale is based on its density and translucency. Sucrose is the most prevalent sugar in maple syrup. In Canada, syrups must be made exclusively from maple sap to qualify as maple syrup and must also be at least 66 percent sugar.
