Maple Syrup is graded then sold in classes that reflect its colour and taste. All of the following classes apply to Ontario Grade A maple syrup.

These grades are regulated under both federal and provincial legislation. When buying, always look for the grade on the container. The taste descriptor is there to help you imagine the taste intensity of the syrup inside so you can choose the one you personally prefer (or need for your recipe).
