Botanical Name: Agave Tequilana Weber Azul
A great natural alternative sweetener
This natural syrup 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.
Dark Agave Syrup is rich in minerals, having gone through less filtering it conserves the flavour and the richness of the agave plant. This organic natural syrup is an ideal ingredient for those who are looking for new flavours and unique recipes.
Our Organic Raw Agave Syrup (also known as Organic Raw 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 40º.
The best way to store the product is in a cool dry place.
The agave plant is grown for a period of 4 to 8 years until it becomes mature. At the time of the harvest, the "Jimador" cuts-off the leaves of the Agave, leaving only the core or "pina". The core is crushed to obtain the sap of the plant which is a sweet juice. The juice then goes through a process of filtration and evaporation below 40ºC to obtain the final syrup. No chemicals are added during this process.
- What is the difference between dark and light agave syrup?
Dark Agave Syrup is rich in minerals, having gone through less filtering, conserves the flavour and the richness of the agave plant. This organic natural syrup is an ideal ingredient for those who are looking for new flavours and unique recipes.
Light Agave Syrup has neutral sweetness that is ideal for dishes/beverages that require a more subtle agave flavour.
