Pure Vermont Maple Syrup

Getting Sap from a Maple Tree Vermont's law is that Vermont maple syrup should not contain any additivies. Our pure Vermont Maple Syrup meets the state's high standards of quality, purity and density.

Some product labels may contain "all natural", so be sure to check ingredients. Often a product labeled maple syrup is one that isn't pure maple syrup. Things to look for when buying maple syrup:

  •   • Closely check the nutritional value of the product.

  •   • Look for mention of rice syrup, corn syrup, maple flavoring.

  •   • Look for the percentage of maple syrup used.

  •   • Look for mention of artificial coloring and preservatives.

If you see any of the above listed on the product label, you can bet it's NOT pure Maple Syrup.
