Light Agave Nectar – 354.88ml (12 fl. oz.)
Agave is a genus of monocots native to the hot and arid regions of Mexico and the southern United States. It belongs to the agavaceas family which is the same plant tequila is made from. In order to turn agave from a spiky desert plant into a sweet syrup, it first must be crushed, with the juice extracted, and subject to hydrolysis which converts its inulin to sugar.
As agave nectar is comprised primarily of fructose, it is, like high fructose corn syrup, it is 25% sweeter than table sugar so if you intend to cook with it, plan to use less. Agave is non-crystallizing and dissolves quickly in hot or cold beverages. No refrigeration is required also keep in mind that because agave nectar is comprised mostly of fructose, that makes it lower on the glycemic index that other sweeteners.
