Maple Syrup Facts

Pure Maple Syrup is a natural sugar made by evaporation of the sap of several species of maple (Acer sp.) trees. The combination of sugar, black, soft or red maples and a climate unique to eastern North America allows for the early Spring harvest of this all-natural delicious sweetener.

  • For 1 cup white granulated sugar, Use 1 cup maple granulated sugar OR Use 1 cupmaple syrup AND reduce other liquids by 3.7 ounces (just under 1/2 cup).
  • For 1 cup packed brown sugar, use 1 cup + 1 tablespoon maple granulated sugar OR use 1 cup plus 1 tablespoon maple syrup AND reduce other liquids by 1/2 cup.
  • 1 00 grams maple syrup = 67 grams granulated sugar PLUS 23 grams water

The influence of the maple flavor on the recipe is most closely related to the color of the syrup used. The maple flavor is more pronounced and robust in darker syrups.

The flavor of granulated maple sugar is influenced greatly by the grade (light through extra dark) of syrup used in its production.
