Syrup Facts

Organic vs. Non-Organic Pure Maple Syrup The difference between Organic and Non-Organic maple syrup is quite basic. It is true that not all maple syrup is certified Organic, but generally, all maple syrup is made in the same way. Maple trees are tapped and sap is collected and boiled. Non-Organic and Organic maple syrup producers are both required to have state and FDA inspections. These inspections are necessary to ensure that the syrup is processed and handled in a safe, sanitary and legal manner. The Organic Certification takes one more inspection by an Organic inspector who goes over many of the same guidelines with a few additions. No chemicals or pesticides are used on the trees or in the general area. Records must be kept as to when and where each drop of Organic syrup was made. Tree maintenance and health are considered by enforcing tapping guidelines for the producer and their trees. This added inspection and record keeping is really what makes the difference between Organic and Non-Organic Certified Pure Maple Syrup. Although most Non-Organic maple syrup is also made without any chemicals or pesticides, there is no guarantee of it unless you buy Organic Syrup. International guidelines for producing maple syrup are generally the same as the Organic guidelines. The Organic Inspection simply verifies that these practices are actually taking place. NATURAL AND NUTRITIOUS Health benefits of real maple syrup are far more comprehensive than you might expect. The only product in our diet coming directly from a plant’s sap, this natural sweetener features over 54 antioxidants that can help delay or prevent diseases caused by free radicals, such as cancer or diabetes. In addition, maple syrup features high levels of zinc and manganese, keeping the heart healthy and boosting the immune system. Maple syrup adds a nice richness to everything from Asian stir-fries to salad dressing. Try it in place of other sweeteners.

Storage and Shelf Life of Maple Syrup

REFRIGERATE IT: Yes, once opened AT FRESHEST: Room temperature, unopened, 2 years refrigerator, open, 1 year freezer, indefinitely OPTIMAL STORAGE: Airtight container in the refrigerator or freezer. FREEZING: Pure maple syrup, properly made, should not actually freeze, making the freezer a great place to store it as it will keep indefinitely. Store in an airtight container. Mix in any condensation on the top before use, and place back in the freezer after thawing, if desired. USE IT UP/REVIVAL: Maple syrup is graded according to color, sugar content, and flavor. Grade A is lighter and more delicately flavored and is typically poured directly onto foods, while Grades B and C are stronger in flavor and are used more for cooking and baking.
