First Nations were the first to discover how to harvest maple sap and make it into maple syrup and maple sugar. Sap was collected in birch bark pails and boiled in clay or metal kettles on a wood burning fire – this method was used for centuries before innovation took over.
Larger scale operations now use a pipeline system where all sap flows to a holding tank using a vacuum, pump or through natural gravity.
Collected sap is put through a reverse osmosis process which separates a good portion of the water from the maple sap, leaving a concentrate that goes into the evaporator.
Evaporators boil the maple sap that has been collected and in doing so evaporate the excess water in the sap. The sap is quality tested until it reaches the proper parameters and has been successfully made into quality maple syrup.
The maple syrup then goes through filtration process before it is bottled.
