Maple Syrup Amber Color (Grade A) from Crown Maple
We love the unique taste of maple syrup - whether for sweetening tea, baking or refining sauces and dressings. The American maple syrup grade A (Amber Color) from Crown Maple cuts an extremely good figure in the kitchen and is indispensable for us!
Maple syrup production - this is how the sweet juice is obtained
In order to obtain the delicious maple syrup, the tree is drilled in one or more places on the trunk during harvest time (depending on age and size). This usually happens between February and April, when the daytime temperature climbs above 0°C for the first time - because that's when the maple sap begins to flow in the tree. The sap supplies the tree with important nutrients that it needs to form new buds. The drilled holes do not harm the tree - the bark regenerates completely within a few weeks .
In order to make delicious maple syrup from the maple sap, it still needs to be cleaned . For this purpose, the maple sap flows through specially installed pipes into so-called sugar huts . Once there it is further processed and cleaned. Crown Maple produces its syrup using the patented reverse osmosis process. With this special production technique, around 80% of the water content is removed from the maple sap, which means that impurities can be filtered out. This makes it probably the purest maple syrup in the world.
Is maple syrup healthy and can you use maple syrup instead of sugar?
We hear the questions quite often about whether maple syrup is healthy or whether it can be used as a sugar substitute . To put it briefly: yes! Maple syrup is a healthy alternative to classic sugar - as long as it is enjoyed in moderation! Compared to sugar, maple syrup causes blood sugar levels to rise more slowly - so diabetics , for example, can use maple syrup to partially replace the sugar. At the same time, maple syrup - similar to honey - has an anti-inflammatory effect . This not only represents a healthy alternative to refined table sugar but is also a vegan substitute for honey.
Maple syrup grades A, B and C
The grade of maple syrup is made up of the color, quality and when the maple sap was harvested . Grade A maple syrup is produced in the first two weeks of the harvest period. Characteristic of grade A is the amber color of the maple syrup and its delicate and mild aroma. Grade B and Grade C maple syrups are significantly darker and have a more intense aroma. The strong taste is particularly characterized by the pronounced caramel note .
