The sap for Hughes Maple syrup comes from approximately 500 taps that flows through plastic lines under vacuum to the sugar shed where it passes through an RO that increases the sugar content of the sap from 2% to approximately 8% prior to boiling in a modern stainless steel evaporator. To achieve the high quality for which Hughes Maple Syrup is known, the sap and syrup pass through six filters prior to grading in compliance with international standards and packaging.
