A Spring of Maple

All news

A Spring of Maple

Did you know that Quebec is the biggest producer of maple syrup in the world? Even during the pandemic, the producers had a breaking record sale in 2020! The overall production was up to 175 millions pounds of syrup, compares to 159,4 millions pounds in 2019. If the sugar shack season is on pause, the maple trees continue to flow!

As a result, some 300,000 barrels of syrup are analyzed annually in order to maintain the highest standards quality in the world. By establishing the market value of our liquid gold, we are able to guarantee that the product intended for consumers is a 100% pure and has the typical maple taste! Its colour and taste evolves as the season progress. Here is what we can learn on Maple of Canada:

  1. Golden Maple Syrup, Delicate Taste

    This maple syrup comes from sap harvested at the very start of sugaring season. You will notice a light golden hue and mild, delicate flavour. Wonderful on yogourt and ice cream.

  2. Amber Maple Syrup, Rich Taste

    Pure and rich in flavour, with a magnificent amber colouring, this maple syrup is ideal for vinaigrettes and adding a fine accent to many dishes and desserts.

  3. Dark Maple Syrup, Robust Taste

    This syrup has a caramelized, more pronounced maple flavour, making it a favourite for use in cooking, baking, and sauce-making. It will take your fruit dishes to the next level!

  4. Very Dark Maple Syrup, Strong Taste

    This maple syrup is from sap gathered at the very end of the season and therefore has the strongest taste of all. It adds rich, distinctive maple flavour, as well as nose and colour, to sauces and glazes.

To learn more about maple syrup, go to Maple from Canada or Quebec Maple Syrup Producers.
