Welcome to Minnesota Maple Syrup Producers Association

    Pure Maple Syrup

    Sap dripping from tap in maple treeThe Minnesota Maple Syrup Producers' Association, Inc. (MMSPA) is a non-profit membership organization serving people involved in the production, processing and marketing of pure maple syrup produced in Minnesota.

    We are committed to the promotion of high quality maple syrup through education and information exchange. We welcome hobbyists and commercial/licensed producers alike.

    Pure maple syrup is one of nature’s sweetest gifts. Boiling down the sap of the maple tree makes pure maple syrup. Minnesota ranks among the top US states and Canadian provinces that have 100,000 taps or more each season and produce pure maple syrup on a commercial scale.  In total, there are 22 states and Canadian provinces that set out more than 10,000 taps apiece each season

    Pure maple syrup is a “natural” food that contains nothing artificial, no additives, no colorings, or preservatives. The main sugar in pure maple syrup is sucrose. Small amounts of fructose and glucose are found in the darker grades of syrup.
