Making Birch Syrup

Birch syrup is known to have a distinctively dark, rich and caramel-like flavor.

Birch syrup is primarily made from the sap of Paper Birch and Alaska Birch trees. The sap has a much shorter tapping window and is more sensitive to temperature than maple sap. It takes 40 gal. of maple sap to make 1 gal. of syrup, but you need over 100 gal. of birch sap to make 1 gal. of birch syrup.

The birch sap is turned into syrup using a reduction process, involving reverse osmosis and evaporators. Because birch sap's primary sugar is fructose (maple sap primarily contains sucrose), the scorching temperature is lower and the reduction process must be controlled carefully.

100% Pure Alaskan Birch Syrup is truly a unique and delicious treat.
