It’s something we don’t always think of — and it’s something we frequently take for granted. You may see several kinds of maple syrup in the grocery store, but how significant is the difference between them? When it says PURE, is it really? If it says it’s from Vermont, is it really? How truthful are labels?

Some maple syrup brands use more high fructose corn syrup and maple flavoring than others that may be more pure. There’s different sugar and calorie content for various brands, and numerous factors that go into syrup. At this maple farm I visited, this is the good stuff.
