About Organic Rich Agave Nectar Syrup Vegan,
This syrup is deliciously dark and tempting, its smooth maple syrup-like flavour is just right for drizzling over food or adding to cooking.
Agave nectar's glycaemic index and glycaemic load are comparable to fructose, which in turn has a much lower glycaemic index and glycaemic load than table sugar (sucrose). Agave nectar is 1.4 to 1.6 times sweeter than sugar. Agave nectar is often substituted for sugar or honey in recipes. It is commonly used as a vegan alternative to honey in cooking. Because it dissolves quickly, it can be used as a sweetener for cold beverages such as iced tea.
