This reference work groups together all modern technologies relating to the installation and management of maple sugar production system components, be they infrastructure or equipment (vacuum collection systems, osmosis units, evaporators, measuring instruments, reservoirs, etc.). We furthermore describe all steps related to tapping and untapping as well as washing, sanitizing and rinsing techniques for maple sugaring equipment while placing a wide emphasis on maple syrup by-products.
The publication is also a good practices guide, which aims to contribute to the efficiency of exploitations and the commercial valuation of maple sugar products. It was written by the Centre ACER in partnership with the Federation of Quebec Maple Syrup Producers and more than 70 advisors, manufacturers and maple sugar producers.
