In 2022 the OSU Bigleaf Maple Project research team was awarded a 2nd Acer Access and Development Program grant that included funding for sensory research on taste and flavor of bigleaf syrup. A summary of research results and links to publications will be added to this webpage as they become available in 2024 

If you are a northwest syrup producer of bigleaf or walnut we would welcome receiving samples for our research. One of our objectives is to look at geographic diversity of flavors. The "Contact" page has an email you can write to introduce yourself and get instructions on how and where to ship. We can pay for postage and provide you 50ml test tubes that are safe to mail. Thank you.
