How does syrup grade vary for New York, Vermont, Quebec, and Ontario?

0

Most maple-producing states and provinces have their own laws regulating syrup sold in those states. States without such regulations must follow the U.S.D.A regulations. Vermont and New Hampshire require a slightly higher minimum density of sugar than is required by the regulations in other areas, though many producers use the higher density guidelines. All U.S. regulations use the U.S.D.A. color standards, but have different words to describe the colors. Canada uses different color standards, which leads to slightly darker syrups in each color grade. Following is a chart showing equivalent grade names. Syrups produced entirely within Vermont may have “Vermont” as part of the grade designation. Significant amounts of the syrup sold by Vermont companies are produced in other states and provinces.
