Agave Nectar is an exciting sweetener naturally extracted from the inner core of the agave plant. This is a cactus-like plant native to Mexico. It's the same plant as Tequila comes from.
Agave Nectar absorbs slowly into the bloodstream, decreasing the highs and lows associated with sugar intake. It has a very low glycaemic index (GI), between 11 and 19. This means it does not significantly raise blood sugar levels. This makes it particularly suitable for those with sensitivities to sugar.
Its gentle method of processing ensures the presence of vitamins and minerals, which are not found in processed sweeteners.
Agave nectar dissolves easily and its taste is natural and delicious, making it the perfect sweetener to naturally enhance any food or beverage. It tastes like a cross between honey and maple syrup! Use as a replacement for dates, honey, sugar, maple syrup, and other sweeteners.
Our organic amber agave nectar is an exciting raw natural liquid sweetener. Premium agave nectars such as this are produced from only the Weber Azul or Blue Agave plant (Agave tequilana). Other, cheaper, agave nectars are made from 3-6 different agave species, but primarily from Agave salmiana. We can certainly taste the difference, and so can our customers!
