Golden Pure Maple Syrup

Flavor Profile

Golden Color, Delicate Taste maple syrup has the mildest maple flavor of all the grades. Its delicate taste makes it perfect as a glaze in cooking. It can be used as a healthier replacement for sugar in almost any recipe, especially when you do not want a strong maple flavor. Many people who are just converting to pure maple syrup (from Aunt Jemima / Log Cabin) prefer Golden pure maple syrup.

Pure maple syrup grades simply describe the color and flavor of the syrup, not it’s quality or nutrition. As maple sap is boiled down, the carmelization of sugar creates the syrup’s color and flavor. We typically get Golden pure maple syrup at the beginning of the syrup season. The sugar content of the sap is at its highest, so it does not require a long boiling time.

In the new maple syrup grading system, Golden Color, Delicate Taste has replaced Grade A Light Fancy.
