Agave nectar is a natural caloric sweetener with a low glycemic index. Under medical control, it can be used by diabetics (Type II, non-insulin dependent). With only 25 calories and 6g of carbohydrates per tablespoon, it is a healthy way to sweeten. Due to its perfect sugars relation, along with oligo-organics (characteristic of the agave plant), agave nectar mixed with citric juices can be used as a natural laxative, relieving constipation problems.
The agave nectar oligo-organic content helps the functioning of the gall bladder and with the saponification of fats. Its oligo-organic contents also works against the blocking of arteries and veins due to high cholesterol levels. Agave nectar enhances flavors and keeps the perfect flavor for a longer period of time. Agave nectar has the same sugar proportion found in the agave plant itself. Our processes do not include the use of synthetic resins for the clarifying and demineralization processes, hence we do not use numerals (ciphers) to show sugars proportions.
In recipes, use about 25% less of this nectar than you would use of refined sugar. Three-quarters of a cup of agave nectar is equivalent to 1 cup of table sugar. For most recipes, this rule works well. Agave nectar has met the "food exchange requirements" by the American Diabetic Association and the American Diabetic Association for product labeling.
