Purity

Weiss Woods syrup is made entirely from sugar maple sap and has been boiled to a minimum of 66° Brix or 7° above the boiling point of water. Pure maple syrup processed is made with only food grade equipment in a sanitary manner, stored in food safe containers and meets the accepted state and USDA standards for density and grade.

Defoamer/Filter Aid

Only certified defoamer and filter aids are accepted. This means that no meat or dairy products may be used as a defoamer in the maple syrup. 

Allergens

No regulated food allergens come into contact with the pure maple syrup or be used as a defoamer. This includes all dairy products (milk, cream, and butter), soy, and any oils produced from tree nuts or peanuts. 

Lead

We commit to work toward producing maple syrup entirely with production and/or packing equipment that is free of any lead containing surfaces.
