You might want to know...

Agave syrup has a low glycemic index rating (32), which means it absorbs slowly into the blood stream and does not cause a "sugar rush".

It is 1.4 times sweeter than sugar. 1 cup sugar = 1/2 - 2/3 cups Agasweet. Save calories and carbs!

Agasweet retains its sweetening power in cooking and baking and provides moisture retention properties. It has a long shelf life (3+ years), and no refrigeration is necessary. It will never crystallize.

Our top-quality flavoring ingredients create a simply divine taste experience. You will find that our well-balanced flavors add a whole new dimension to your dishes.

Many savory recipes address only some of your taste buds - usually salty, bitter (pepper), and sour. With Agasweet, you add "sweet" to the flavor profile of your dishes combined with enhancing citrus, stimulating mint, soothing cinnamon, or adventurous lavender. You'll awaken all taste buds simultaneously, and the result is a flavor explosion in your mouth!

The wild agave plants for our base syrup are grown on small parcels of privately-owned, strictly controlled Indian land in Mexico.

The nectar is harvested from the core of the mature plant and cooked into a light syrup. For more in-depth info on the agave plant, harvest and production methods, please see my companion lens: Agave Nectar

The purity of our syrup is ensured through regular USDA Organic certification by BioAgriCert.
