Agave Nectar is the perfect sweetener choice for vegans, vegetarians and raw / living food diets. It can be used in place of honey, corn syrup & maple syrup. It can be substituted for sugar in most recipes. Agave is sweeter than sugar, so generally 2/3 cups of agave replace 1 cup of sugar. Experiment to taste. It is certified organic, 100% pure and contains no animal products of any kind.
Made from the Agave Salmiana (not the Blue Agave) that grows in the high desert regions of central Mexico. Agave nectar has a low glycemic index of 32. Compare to 58 for honey and 64 for table sugar. Agave has the same calories as honey, but as most folks find it to be sweeter less is needed. In such a case, less calories are consumed.
