Maple Syrup Grading

There are now two primary maple syrup classifications, with additional sub categories based on color and flavor profiles, which are outlined below and included in this clearly-illustrated Maple Syrup Grades infographic. To ensure that private resellers and food industry professionals are still guaranteed the exact flavor profile they need, Bascom Family Farms will still maintain our proprietary “seven-tiered” grading process. The new grades refer directly to the color and taste of the sap, which varies throughout the sugaring season. Syrup produced earlier in the season tends to be lighter in color and more subtle in flavor. Dark robust syrup is produced later in the season. As it has been for generations, the process to produce maple syrup is fundamentally the same across all grades. Remember, the new maple syrup grades only apply to pure maple syrup, not imitation breakfast syrups or other fake products. While “Grade B” no longer exists (it is replaced with Grade A Dark Color, Robust Flavor), there are still two primary grades of 100% real maple syrup with clear and helpful descriptors.
