Why Buy Wholesale Maple Syrup from Bascom Family Farms?

Consumers are more interested than ever in healthier diets, and they are willing to pay more for high quality, nutritious food. Between 1990 and 2010, U.S. sales of organic food and beverages grew from $1 billion to a staggering $26.7 billion, and this shift is the result of an increase in consumer knowledge regarding diet. People no longer want highly-refined and processed meals made with cheap and unhealthy ingredients. White flour and white sugar, though still widely used in many recipes and products, are being replaced by restaurants and bakeries that choose to use healthier alternatives as a way to appeal to this growing wave of consumer interest.

Your Customers Want Healthy, High Quality Food

One reason for the surge of interest in maple syrup and maple sugar as natural alternative sweeteners is due to the growing number of scientific studies that have come out touting its health benefits as well as the health risks of refined sugars. Not only has the popularity of maple syrup skyrocketed, but public demand for all natural, nutritious, locally-grown and locally-made foods has exploded.

What was once used almost exclusively as a breakfast condiment, is now increasingly used as a replacement for white sugar in many homes and food establishments across the globe. Using maple syrup in your kitchen is a great way to get an edge on your competition by showing your customers that you care just as much about the quality of the food that you serve as they do. People feel good when they eat food that is not only delicious, but healthy as well—and they are willing to pay a little more on a quality dining experience that offers just that.

The Culinary Possibilities of Maple Syrup are Unlimited

Of all of the sweeteners on the market today, maple syrup has the best reputation for being as flavorful as it is nutrient-rich. Sure, any type of sweetener will serve its sweetening purpose in your desserts, but why not use maple syrup instead and give your customers an even richer flavor with an abundance of nutrients and antioxidants? Though it is undoubtedly the superior natural sweetener for desserts and baked goods, the possibilities don’t end there. The versatility of maple syrup’s flavor lends itself to a wide range of cuisines and dishes that you might not expect. It makes a wonderful addition to glazes for fresh fish, pork and vegetables, and it is the perfect complement to your fall menu offerings. There is simply no good reason for you or your chefs not to take advantage of its endlessly exciting culinary possibilities.

Spending a Little More Can Pay Big Dividends When It Comes to Your Reputation

There has been a huge shift in many metropolitan cities where buying fresh, local ingredients has become the norm for small restaurants and bakeries. This exciting development is being met with open arms from the public. For many restaurants and food service operations, purchasing all of your ingredients from local sources is not always a feasible option. Still, there are ways to dramatically improve the quality, flavor and reputation of your food—and cooking with maple syrup is a great start!

When choosing which sweeteners to use in your kitchen, remember — you get what you pay for. Cheaper options such as granulated sugar and high fructose corn syrup will save you money, but the poor quality will show in the food that you serve. Using maple syrup in place of other sweeteners in your kitchen might be a little more expensive, but buying in bulk from a reputable wholesale maple syrup supplier will help you save money. Overall, making this switch is well worth the extra cost when it comes to flavor and nutritional superiority—and your customers will definitely take notice. Your bakery or restaurant’s reputation for using only the highest quality ingredients and serving the freshest and tastiest food will be all the advertising you need to bring in more business.

Bulk Maple Sugar

What Is Maple Sugar?

Maple sugar is a 100% natural alternative sweetener long prized for it’s unique, rich sweetness. Formed when the sap of sugar maples is boiled for longer than is needed to create maple syrup, the result is pure maple syrup granules. A natural sugar substitute, maple sugar confers all of the benefits of maple syrup, making it the best sweetener for you.

Why Should You Buy Bulk Maple Sugar?

Clearly health concerns are at issue, and there is an increased sensitivity around processed sugar alternatives in today’s world, especially as adult and childhood obesity is on the rise. Health-conscious consumers want to feel good about what they are eating, and are purchasing foods with simple lists of ingredients and clean labels they can understand and feel good about eating.

Bulk Maple Sugar Applications

People around the world are looking for more organic food options, and are incredibly conscious about the ingredients they eat. Consumers are examining food labels like never before. While this certainly puts more pressure on food manufacturers and food service providers, it also creates a niche market to produce some exceptional and nutritious foods. Maple sugar is one essential ingredient to have on your shelves to meet the natural food consumer demand.

The demand for bulk maple sugar has grown in recent years due to its versatility, stability, and unmistakable flavor. While there are an unlimited number of uses, there are some typical food group categories and specific foods that rely on maple sugar:

  • Baked Goods: bread, cookies, danishes
  • Meat Products: sausage, ham, bacon, chicken
  • Breakfast Foods: oatmeal, cereal, granola
  • Condiments & Sauces: salad dressings, sautés, grilling and barbecue sauces, mustard
  • Beverages

Maple Sugar Characteristics

The Bascom Family Farms maple sugar begins with our pure, robust, and dark colored maple syrup. We put the syrup into a customized vessel, and process it until the syrup evaporates into pure maple sugar, completely free of any additives.

Why are more food manufacturers looking to maple sugar for their recipes? Not only is this natural sugar a delicious and healthy processed sugar alternative, it comes with a long list of positive attributes:

  • Long Shelf Life and Storage: Less than 1% moisture, not subject to yeast or bacteria growth, maple sugar can last for years. Compared to some of our competitors’ products, our maple sugars tend to have an even longer shelf life and more dynamic flavor because we closely maintain consistent low moisture content, granule size, PH, and overall sweetness.
  • Multiple Maple Sugar Granule Sizes: Maple sugar is a dry, micro-crystalline material, 90 – 95% sucrose available in standard, sifted, and powder sized granules that can pass through a #10 screen, like table sugar or through a #35 screen with flour-like consistency.
  • Various Bulk Maple Sugar Packaging Options: Granulated maple sugar is packed in 1 lb., 5 lb., and 40 pound boxes.
  • Year Round Availability: We stock a large supply of maple sugar available for immediate shipment year-round.

Maple sugar is used much in the same way that standard cane sugar is used. However, it can have a deeper sweetness than cane sugar, so keep this in mind for your foods. If you need any assistance with product application or your recipe formulation, let’s discuss what may work best for your needs.

Bulk Maple Sugar Capacity You Can Count on Year Round

Maple Sugar: Granule Sizes

To make Bascom Family Farms maple sugar, we start by selecting a full-flavored, dark colored 100% pure natural or organic maple syrup that meets our strict specifications. The syrup is pumped into a pressurized vessel, cooked and stirred. To ensure product integrity, nothing is added throughout the processing. After the water in the syrup has evaporated, pieces of maple sugar remain. Ground into smaller pieces, the sugar is sifted according to the size including powder, granules or a combination of both. The result produces a dry maple sugar; a micro-crystalline material that is 90% to 95% sucrose.

Proprietary Process Guarantees Consistency, Longer Shelf Life and Superior Flavor

Bulk-SugarOur maple sugar is available in standard, sifted, and powder sized granules that can pass through a #10 screen, like table sugar or through a #35 screen, like flour.

Bulk Maple Syrup That Makes the Grade

Whether you are new to the world of pure maple syrup or a seasoned veteran bulk maple syrup buyer, you may be surprised to learn just how many grades and types exist for this natural product. It is important to first understand the USDA maple syrup grading system that includes these five grades and corresponding flavor profiles:

  • Grade A Golden Color, Delicate Taste Maple Syrup: This smooth flavor is one of the most delicate of all the maple syrup grades. Made earlier in the season during colder climates, this smooth maple flavor is ideal for maple cream and maple candies.
  • Grade A Amber Color, Rich Taste Maple Syrup: This syrup is slightly darker than the Golden Delicate and is known for its smooth maple flavor. This distinctive taste is produced mid-season when the temperatures start to warm. Its unique and subtle flavor is most often used for table syrup.
  • Grade A Dark Color, Robust Taste Maple Syrup: As the days become warmer and longer in sugaring season, we produce this full-bodied maple syrup grade. Both the color and the maple flavor are a bit stronger and more intense than the Amber, Rich. The sugar content of the saps has dropped by now so it takes more gallons of sap to make a gallon of syrup, hence the darker color and stronger flavors. This versatile grade is great as a topping and for cooking. Its strong maple flavor also lends itself to meat glazes, cooking recipes, and atop of waffles, pancakes, or oatmeal.
  • Grade A Very Dark Color, Strong Taste Maple Syrup: Typically used for cooking purposes, this is the strongest maple syrup flavor.
  • Processing Grade Maple Syrup: Used primarily as a commercial ingredient, this dark syrup presents a strong maple flavor. This maple syrup grade is very popular among food manufacturers. Produced last in the sugaring season, this maple syrup is exceptionally robust. Its intense maple flavor is perfect for baking, and many food brands and chefs rely on this specific grade for recipes. The processing grade of maple syrup is suitable as an ingredient in food products, but is not permitted for retail sale. While it doesn’t meet Grade A requirements, it does meet all other maple regulations and food quality/safety guidelines.

Pure Maple Syrup Grades Explained

How Is Maple Syrup Graded?

The maple syrup grading system is built on a combination of flavor and translucence, the latter of which measures how much light is transmitted through the syrup. Darker maple syrup grades permit less light to pass through, and lighter grades of maple syrup have the highest levels of light transmission. As a general rule of thumb, the lighter maple syrup grades are produced earlier in the season when the weather is colder and the darker maple syrup grades show up later in the season when it’s warmer.

Which maple syrup grade is right for your product and manufacturing needs?

There is no such thing as the “best” grade of maple syrup. As you formulate your products and recipes, you will likely have a specific maple syrup grade that works best for your needs. Included below are some common uses for the five basic grades:

  • Grade A Golden Color, Delicate Taste Maple Syrup: This smooth flavor is one of the most delicate of all the maple syrup grades. Made earlier in the season during colder climates, this smooth maple flavor is ideal for maple cream and maple candies.
  • Grade A Amber Color, Rich Taste Maple Syrup: This maple syrup grade is slightly darker than the Golden Delicate and is known for its smooth maple flavor. This distinctive taste is produced mid-season when the temperatures start to warm. Its unique and subtle flavor is most often used for table syrup.
  • Grade A Dark Color, Robust Taste Maple Syrup: As the days become warmer and longer in sugaring season, we produce this full-bodied maple syrup grade. Both the color and the maple flavor are a bit stronger and more intense than the Amber, Rich. The sugar content of the sap has dropped by now so, it takes more sap to make a gallon of syrup; hence the darker color and stronger flavors. This versatile grade, formerly know as Grade B maple syrup,  is great as a topping and for cooking. Its strong maple flavor also lends itself to meat glazes, cooking recipes, and atop of waffles, pancakes, or oatmeal.
  • Grade A Very Dark Color, Strong Taste Maple Syrup: Used primarily as a commercial ingredient, this dark syrup presents a strong maple flavor. This maple syrup grade is very popular among food manufacturers. Produced last in the sugaring season, this maple syrup is exceptionally robust. Its intense maple flavor is perfect for baking, and many food brands and chefs rely on this specific grade for recipes.
  • Processing Grade Maple Syrup: The processing grade of maple syrup is suitable as an ingredient in food products, but may contain off odors or flavors and cannot be graded as grade A. It is not permitted for retail sale. While it doesn’t meet Grade A requirements, it does meet all other maple regulations and food quality/safety guidelines, and is suitable as an ingredient in agricultural applications such as in livestock feed.

Our Proprietary “Seven-Tiered” Grading Process Ensures Consistency

Maple grade consistency is crucial to food manufacturers, chefs and private label marketers. This is why Bascom Family Farms maintains the strictest grading standards in the maple manufacturing industry.

BMF-silo-tubing
After arriving on premises, syrup is graded and stored separately in large tanks.

While we grade maple by the basic four USDA grades, we also employ an even tougher blending and grading system. Bascom Family Farms’ “seven-tier” grading standard produces 28 maple syrup grades that ensure each manufacturer gets the exact flavor profile they need. Our “seven-tiered” maple grading standard is stringent and steadfast. It segregates the maple syrup by flavor profile and color for optimal quality assurance and consumer satisfaction. We take this extra step because maple syrup (just like wine) varies slightly from grower to grower and from region to region every year. Our unique proprietary grading process allows us to formulate those subtleties out so manufacturers, private label marketers, the world’s top chefs and leaders in the food service industry get a consistent product with the correct flavor profile every time.  In addition, all of our organic bulk maple syrup products are certified organic by Quality Assurance International (QAI), carry the USDA organic seal, and have the Kof-K Kosher certification.
