We’re often asked about the differences between maple syrup grades. In general, lighter grades are usually made earlier in the season. They have a more mellow maple flavor whereas darker syrups are usually produced later in the season from older sap and has a much stronger maple flavor. As temperatures get warmer and the sap gets older throughout the season the sugar starts to naturally break down, these new sugars caramelize quicker when heated, thats why the syrup tends to be darker and have a stronger taste. Just like white/red wine and light/dark beer, neither is better, just personal preference. That is why the industry no longer calls dark syrup Grade-B—some people thought that meant it was inferior which is definitely not the case! We do recommend dark or very dark for cooking. If you use golden/amber in recipes, other ingredients may cover up the maple taste. Our dark grade is perfect on pancakes or on anything else! All grades are 67% sugar, 33% water, and have the same thickness and sweetness. We usually use golden/amber for our candy and cream and amber for sugar. Lighter grades usually, but not always, crystalize easier and make better and more consistent confections.
