This starch is converted into the sugar that are rising in sap at the early spring and the late winter.

The maple trees are tapped by the drilling holes to the trunks to collect the exuded sap. It is processed by the process of heating the sap to evaporate the water to get the concentrated syrup. The grade of the maple syrup can be measured by the Vermont, United states or Canada scales, based on the translucency and the density of the syrup.
