All Palmateer Sugar Bush maple syrup, regardless of grade, contains a minimum sugar content of 66 percent and has been created exclusively from the concentration of maple sap from our trees here at the farm. The difference between maple syrups is strictly colour and the intensity of its maple flavour.
Our maple syrup is colour classified as Delicate (Golden), Rich (Amber), Robust (Dark) and Strong (Very Dark).
All maple syrup sold in Ontario must be graded and classified for colour. The system under which maple syrup is graded depends on whether a producer is under provincial or federal regulations. At the present time, the Ontario Government and the Canadian Food Inspection Agency have adopted the grading standards recommended by the International Maple Syrup Institute (IMSI).
