Canadian Heritage Organics maple products respect the organic farming processes: manufactured naturally with absolutely no artificial additives, coloring, preservatives or chemicals.
Canadian Heritage Organics products are made in the Appalaches region of Quebec where the mineral content of the soil is ideal for making maple syrup. With three generations of craftsmanship, our maple products are collected using traditional farming techniques as well as with the Pipeline Method. This allows us to ensure that we are making the highest quality maple syrup possible.
Once manufactured, maple syrup is graded by an independant company to meet Federal Standards. Grades refer to the colour and flavour of the syrup.
Four grades of maple syrup, based on colour and taste:
- Golden, Delicate taste
- Amber, Rich taste
- Dark, Robust taste
- Very Dark, Strong taste
- Free of fermentation
- Uniform in colour
- Free of sediment
- No cloudiness or turbidity
- Maple flavour characteristic of its colour class
- No objectionable odour or taste
This syrup comes from maple sap harvested at the very beginning of the sugaring-off season. It’s distinguished by its light golden hue and sweet, delicate flavour. It’s a delicious topping for yogourt and ice cream.
Amber, Rich taste
This syrup has a pure, rich taste and a magnificent amber colouring. It’s ideal as an ingredient in vinaigrettes and all sorts of dishes and desserts.
Dark, Robust taste
This syrup, with its more pronounced, caramelized flavour, is well-suited for cooking, baking, and sauces. It’s celebrated for the way it enhances the taste of fruity dishes.
Very Dark, Strong taste
This syrup is the product of maple sap harvested at the end of the sugaring-off season. Its flavour, more pronounced than any of the previously-listed syrups, is rich and distinctive. It colours and perfumes sauces and glazes to perfection.

Nice, medium dark syrup, good balanced flavor and aroma, and maybe a little too sweet. I like a very dark maple taste, and this almost got there. I'd probably like it with even more darkness, but I think the price and quality are very good, and if you don't want the syrup to overwhelm your dish, then this might be just right for you.

This one is great drizzled over French Toasts. I like darker maple syrup better than the lighter ones. It imparts a pleasant flavour and taste to my herbal teas as much as adding minerals to it. This is great quality maple syrup in glass container. Wipe the rim with wet paper towel after each use.

Grade C is Good but it is too mild for me. Not allot of flavor. I wanted Grade D (Dark) instead but it was too expensive for me to buy. The first maple syrup I have tasted was Grade D (Dark) which was awesome. Ever since then I was never satisfy with the lighter maple syrups and the maple syrups with other ingredients added. I end up using allot of syrup everytime time I made pancakes because of this problem. I have a abit of maple syrup left but the cap is stuck because of the maple syrup.I wish that they made the bottles differently.
