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.

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.
