Properties

A viscous liquid, agave nectar has a ratio of fructose to glucose of approximately 3:1 and therefore the impact on blood sugar levels is akin to that of fructose giving it a much lower glycemic index than table sugar.

Uses

Agave nectar is a delicious sweetener and can be used for a wide variety of purposes.  Although a lower GI than sugar you should note that it is still made up of fructose and glucose so is far from calorie free.  If looking for a low calorie natural sweetener that does not affect blood sugar levels then we recommend that you consider Stevia.

How to take or use agave nectar

Add to taste to products.  As stated our raw agave nectar is sweeter than sugar so you may want to adjust the amount used accordingly.

Precautions

People with diabetes or similar conditions should exercise due care with agave nectar due to potential effects on blood sugar levels  (as with most other sweeteners).
