It takes approximately 40 litres of maple sap to make 1 litre of maple syrup. The maple sap is collected in either buckets or by way of a pipeline that brings sap from the tree to the processing area. The sap, which comes out of the tree with a sugar content of approximately 2%, is boiled until it reaches between 66% and 67.5% sugar content. So you can see that a lot of hard work and dedication goes into each litre of maple syrup produced! Maple syrup is a completely natural product with no additives. It is chock full of minerals and plant proteins.
