Certified organic maple syrup is extremely beneficial due to its preventative and highly nutritional qualities. When you choose organic maple syrup, you are getting a product that is made by farmers who adhere to strict guidelines in protecting the integrity of the maple syrup and the environment in which the maple sap was harvested.
Certified organic maple syrup is produced from trees without the use of pesticides, herbicides or synthetic fertilizers. Organic harvesting practices promote the well being of the maple tree and sugar bush. Pure maple syrup is a natural product, but that doesn’t mean that it was processed by natural means. Certified organic producers gather maple sap and process it without using chemicals of any kind. Organic standards also require the boiling of maple sap in stainless steel, lead free pans.
The USDA has strict standards for producers who use the organic label. The sap gathering and boiling processes are carefully documented and inspected annually.
The Organic Trade Association reports that Organic is one of the fastest growing segments of American agriculture and consumer demand for organic products continues to rise.
