Known in Mexico as aguamiel, or "honey water", Agave Nectar was considered a gift from the gods by the ancient Aztecs, and today is considered nature's perfect sweetener by many. Agave Nectar (also called Agave Syrup) is minimally processed using low temperatures and has a low glycemic index, making it the sweetener of choice for many raw food enthusiasts.
Now Real Food Amber Agave Nectar is a medium-intensity liquid sweetener with a taste closer to maple syrup. Its stronger flavor makes it ideal for use in more hearty culinary applications, and it's an excellent substitute for maple syrup. It dissolves quickly and easily in both hot and cold beverages, so use it right out of the bottle for a healthy splash of natural sweetness!

iHerb Customer Reviews
This agave nectar really has a wonderful flavor. It's very light (hardly noticable in recipes) and has a delicious sweetness. I've used this in pumpkin pie, sweet potato casserole, and cranberry sauce, and it really is delicious. Just be sure to reduce your liquids a bit and your baking temperature by 25 degrees. Also, use 1/3 less of this than you would sugar. While this certainly isn't low calorie, it is a delicious, all natural, lower glycemic alternative to sugar. GI of agave is somewhere between 10 and 38, from the sources I've checked, and sugar is about 58. Hubby has enjoyed everything I've made with it, so it will become a regular staple in our house.
Nieko ypatingo, bet labai apsidziaugiau ji turinti kai teko sugirdyti vaikui karcius vaistus. Uzteko keliu laseliu, kad nesijaustu vaistu skonio.
