Maple Syrup Colour Classes

The four colour classes are defined according to the degree of light transmission by the maple syrup. To this characteristic is added a taste descriptor so that the consumer can easily navigate.

 

 

Golden maple syrup with a delicate taste

Golden, delicate taste. Ideal to use in cocktails and dressings, or to sweeten your fruit salads or yogurt.
  

Amber maple syrup with a rich taste

Amber, rich taste. A favorite on pancakes and French toast, in coffee or a smoothie. It can also be used to flavor icing.

Dark maple syrup with a robust taste

Robust taste. It is very popular in cooking: it is used as much to glaze scallops as to add flavor to oatmeal.
 

Very dark maple syrup with a strong taste

Strong taste. Its flavor is reminiscent of maple taffy. It is added to our marinades for delicious grilled meats and tasty smoked fish.
