A great natural alternative sweetener

Agave Syrup or Agave Nectar, as it is also known, 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 sweetening with a subtle agave flavour. Dark Agave Syrup is rich in minerals, having gone through less filtering it conserves the flavour of the agave plant. These organic natural syrups are ideal for an alternative sweetener for those who are looking for new flavours, unique recipes or simply looking to substitute cane sugar.

Our Organic Agave Syrup (also known as Organic 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 40ºC.

You can buy Organic Agave Syrup through our online store. If you would like to buy wholesale, please contact us through our wholesale enquiry form.

The agave plant is grown for a period of 4 to 8 years until it becomes mature. At the time of the harvest, the "Jimador" cuts-off the leaves of the Agave, leaving only the core or "pina". The core is crushed to obtain the sap of the plant which is a sweet juice. The juice then goes through a process of filtration and evaporation below 40ºC to obtain the final syrup. No chemicals are added during this process.

1 What is the difference between dark and light agave syrup?
2 Is Agave Syrup the same as Agave Nectar?
"The light Agave syrup is great to replace sugar in anything. The taste is subtle and not too sweet - highly recommended!."

"I cook for a diabetic husband and as weight watcher myself I find the dark agave syrup with its low GI a perfect substitute when I am making special treats for both of us. As I have adapted quite a number of my baking recipes to use agave, its the first thing I reach for when the mixing bowls come out. The flavour blends well and does not over power. I even use it in bread making."
