Grading Information For Maple Syrup:
Within Canada the CFIA (Canadian Food Inspection Agency) has set strict standards in order to grade syrups by colour, these colour grades are as follows –
- “Golden, Delicate Taste”
- “Amber, Rich Taste”
- “Dark, Robust Taste”, or
- “Very Dark, Strong Taste”
Note: This grading system is due to an amendment to the MPR which came into force on December 12, 2014 which has introduced new grades for maple syrup including new colour classes with taste descriptors.
