THE FLAVOR OF REAL MAPLE SYRUP
The typical, characteristic flavor of 100% pure maple syrup is a caramel-like bouquet with nutty notes.
Numerous unique flavors emerge from syrups sourced from various provenances, influenced by factors such as the terroir (soil type and local weather), seasonal variations and the specific boiling techniques employed.
The miracle of pure maple flavor lies in the heating and boiling phase, which further reduces maple syrup and imparts a rich, caramel-like taste through the evaporation process. The chemical process called the “Maillard reaction” makes the amino acids in the sap react with its sugar, causing it to brown. This natural occurrence gives maple syrup its unique flavor, color, aroma and antioxidant properties.
