美国卖得最好的 6 种枫糖浆及其评级系统介绍

以前北美的枫糖浆有三种分级方式:加拿大、美国佛蒙特州、美国其他州。佛蒙特州这么拽是因为它出产了全美约 40% 的枫糖浆 。

比如说,最浅的颜色在枫叶国叫 Canada No. 1 Extra Light,在美国叫 Grade A Light Amber,在 Vermont 叫 Fancy,搞得消费者都很困惑,于是 2015 年美国农业部弄了套新的评级系统,还好这次 Vermont 和加拿大都认了,不然就会变成 3 + 1 种分级方式了。

根据新的 USDA 评级系统 [来源],市面上能买到枫糖浆都是 Grade A,分为 Golden/Delicate(细腻)、 Amber/Rich(丰富)、 Dark/Robust(较重)、 Very Dark/Strong(更重)4 种,颜色由浅至深、口味由轻变重。它们的生产技术完全一样,造成这种区别的原因是生产季节:早春的枫糖颜色最浅、口味最轻,越往后的枫糖颜色越深、口味越重。除了下表「推荐」的用途外,买什么样的枫糖浆主要取决于个人口味和喜好,就像有人喜欢辛辣、有人喜欢清淡一样,并无优劣之分。

评级 口味 透光度 颜色 推荐用途 购买
US Grade A Golden 细腻 ≥75.0 Cream, Candy 点我
US Grade A Amber 丰富 50.0-74.9 Table Syrup 点我
US Grade A Dark 较重 25.0-49.9 Topping, Cooking 点我
US Grade A Very Dark 更重 <25.0 Baking 点我

因此,如果现在有商家宣传自己的枫糖浆是 USDA Grade A,并不说明它的质量有多么优异,因为市面上所有的枫糖浆都是 Grade A 。以前 USDA 曾经有 Grade B,相当于现在的 Grade A Dark/Very Dark,我怀疑那时加拿大和 Vermont 不喜欢 USDA 标准的原因之一,就是 Grade B 听上去像是 subpar 、让人(误)以为它的品质不好。

除了上表的 4 种 Grade A 外,枫糖浆还有 Processing Grade 仅限商业用途,以及不达标的 Substandard,这两种级别的枫糖浆并不对个人消费者出售,因此你不会买到、我们就不介绍了。下面是美国卖得最好的 6 种枫糖浆。
