Vt. considers new maple syrup standards

Posted: Updated:
BURLINGTON, Vt. -

A change could be coming to your bottle of maple syrup. Vermont is considering changing its syrup grading system to create a unified system across the U.S. and Canada. For example, Fancy syrup would become Golden Color, Delicate Taste; and Medium Amber would become Amber Color and Rich Taste. But some people don't like the idea. Critics say it would be tough to re-educate consumers.

Henry Marckres is a Consumer Protection Chief at the Vermont Agriculture Agency and a maple expert. He appeared on The :30 to tell us more about the changes that are being considered. Watch the video for more.
