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.
Light Agave Syrup has a neutral sweetness that is ideal for dishes/beverages that require sweetness with a subtle agave flavour.
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.
