Frequently asked questions about Organic Maple Syrup
What is the Difference Between Organic Maple Syrup and Non-organic Maple Syrup?
Organic Maple Syrup has gone through a rigorous certification process. This ensures that the syrup itself is all natural and contains no harmful ingredients and it also ensures that the process used to produce the syrup is environmentally friendly and sustainable. Maple Syrup that is not organically certified has not gone through this inspection process. Hence, organically certified maple syrup provides you an extra quality control step so you can be confident of what you are buying.
Isn't all Maple Syrup Organic?
When we hear the term "organic" many of us think of food that is produced without harmful pesticides, fertilizers, and other chemicals. Maple syrup is produced from raw, natural forests. The trees were not planted, they were naturally there and they don't require annual planting, fertilizing, pesticide application or harvesting. So in this sense maple syrup is naturally organic. But there are some production practices that may cost more, but are more sustainable for the forest than others. Organic certification ensures that the maple syrup producer is following all the best practices to allow the forest to remain healthy decades and even centuries into the future.
