Agave nectar, raw, wildcrafted, vegan
We are so happy to make this available to you in the UK and Europe!
Agave Nectar is an exciting new sweetener naturally extracted from the inner core of the Agave (a cactus-like plant native to Mexico).
Agave Nectar absorbs slowly into the bloodstream, decreasing the highs and lows associated with sugar intake. Agave nectar comes from a cactus, with a very low glycemic index, meaning it does not significantly raise blood sugar levels.
It is unprocessed and therefore provides vitamins and minerals not found in processed sweeteners. Because of the low glycemic index it is acceptable for people with diabetes and hyperglycemia.
Agave Nectar dissolves easily and its taste is natural and delicious, making it the perfect sweetener to naturally enhance any food or beverage.
Tastes like a cross between honey and maple syrup!
Use as a replacement for dates, honey, sugar, maple syrup, and other sweeteners.
Our organic Wild Light Agave Nectar is an exciting RAW natural liquid sweetener. Whereas premium agave nectars are produced from only the Weber Azul or Blue Agave plant (Agave tequilana), which is also used to make tequila, wild agave nectars are made from 3-6 different agave species, but primarily from Agave salmiana. To produce wild agave syrup, juice is extracted naturally from the core of living agave cactus plants. Similar to how a bee creates honey, it is through enzymatic action that the complex sugars in fresh agave juice are converted into simple sugars, producing agave nectar. The nectar is then finely filtered. The temperature in the entire process never exceeds 115 degrees F. This minimal processing and minimal heat provides vitamins, minerals and enzymes in agave nectar that are not found in other processed sweeteners
