Best Answer

The artificial maple syrup is made from sugars of one type or another such as cane, beet, or corn syrup and is flavored artificially. There are both regular and sugar free "syrups". Real Maple Syrup is made by boiling down approximately 50 gallons of sap from the Sugar Maple or Hard Maple tree to make one gallon of Maple Syrup. Sap to syrup, nothing added, just 49 gallons of water taken away. The sap must be collected in the early spring when it is above freezing during the day and below freezing at night. Maple syrup is made in many of the New England states as well as Michigan, Wisconsin, Minnesota and other northern states and parts of Canada. Because of the intense labor involved, real Maple Syrup costs $12-$15 a quart.

It means that the product contains at least some real maple syrup made the old-fashioned way by boiling down sap from maple trees instead of being made by just taking some corn syrup (or something similar) and just adding maple flavoring to it.
