Golden: The lightest syrup Grade it’s also the most delicate in flavor. It is commonly used in maple confections, including maple cream and molded maple sugar (candy). It also makes a good table syrup for one that prefers a sweet, delicate flavor.
Amber Rich: Amber colored syrup with more pronounced maple flavor. This grade is the most commonly used as table syrup.
Dark Robust: This dark syrup has a bold maple flavor. It can be used for cooking or table syrup.
Pure Maple Syrup is made from the sap of a maple tree. When the sap comes out of the tree, it is mostly water(only 1%-2% sugar). To make syrup most of the water has to be removed by boiling until it reaches approximately 67%-68% sugar.
