About Organic Blue Agave Nectar
A delicious liquid sweetener that is made from the nectar, or Aguamiel, of a succulent plant called the Agave. Agave is native to Mexico. Our agave nectar is made from the organically grown Agave azul or Blue Agave — a species that is known to produce the best quality agave nectar for sweetening.
Since agave nectar ranks as having a low glycemic index, it makes for a versatile and ideal sweetener. Low glycemic index foods are an important part of healthy diets as they help to keep energy levels balanced. In addition, agave nectar is a gluten-free product and it contains no allergens. Our Agave Nectar is vegan friendly with no additives or preservatives.
Agave nectar is purified when it is heated. Depending upon the levels of heating, we are able to produce two varieties - Light Agave Nectar and Amber Agave Nectar (Dark). Light Agave Nectar offers a pure sweetness that will not add any flavor when sweetening beverages or recipes. It is ideal for making “skinny” cocktails and mocktails. The Amber Agave Nectar gives a more caramel-like flavor to foods, perfect for sweetening breakfast foods like pancakes, oatmeal or cereal.
