What does it mean when we say "100% Pure Maple" or "Real Maple"? It means a whole lot in the maple world. Real, pure maple has nothing added to it. It's 100% from the sap of the maple tree. Nothing is added. Only water is subtracted through the boiling process. Syrup is commonly used in coffee, oatmeal, drizzled over fruit or pancakes, chicken wings, salmon, pork or squash. Many of our customers state that they make their own maple frosting or barbecue sauce with our syrup.
