Botanical Name: Agave Tequilana Weber Azul
A great natural alternative sweetener
Agave Syrup or Agave Nectar, as it is also known, is obtained from the sap in the hearts of the agave or maguey plant. One of the unique characteristics of this natural sweetener is that it is slowly metabolized. It has a very low Glycemic Index (GI) compared to sugar, honey, maple syrup or other sweeteners.
Light Agave Syrup has a neutral sweetness that is ideal for dishes/beverages that require sweetening with a subtle agave flavour. Dark Agave Syrup is rich in minerals, having gone through less filtering it conserves the flavour of the agave plant. These organic natural syrups are ideal for an alternative sweetener for those who are looking for new flavours, unique recipes or simply looking to substitute cane sugar.
Our Organic Agave Syrup (also known as Organic Agave Nectar) is produced in Jalisco, Mexico, where the maguey or agave plant grows natively. This is the best agave syrup produced in the region using traditional methods including low-temperature evaporation below 40ºC.
