One Ingredient. A World of Flavor
Grown in the sun-drenched fields of Jalisco, Mexico, Organic Blue Agave is a great tasting, versatile premium sweetener that’s just as at-home in your baked goods as it is in your coffee. Best of all, it is delicious and low glycemic which means there’s minimal spike in blood sugar. And as it is 25% sweeter than sugar, you can use less!
So, what’s in Organic Blue Agave? Nothing but 100% pure blue agave nectar! After maturing for 5-7 years, the plants are harvested by agave farmers, or Jimadors, who then trim the leaves by hand using a razor sharp blade called a coa. The leaf trimmings are left behind to help protect the soil. What remains is the core, or piña, that looks like a pineapple, where the plant stores the naturally sweet blue agave nectar.
The juice extracted from crushed piñas is gently heated and filtered, resulting in a sweet syrup with subtle molasses tones that enhances food’s natural flavor. And that’s it, nothing added, nothing taken away! There are no additives or preservatives. Organic Blue Agave is nothing but naturally sweet, delicious goodness you’ll love in your tea, on fresh fruit, waffles or anywhere you need a little sweetness in your life.
Low Glycemic: The Agave Advantage
Agave Replaces Artificial Sweeteners. Organic Blue Agave is great tasting and a low glycemic index (GI) sweetener, so it is slowly absorbed into the body preventing spikes in blood sugar.
You can drizzle and pour on Organic Blue Agave on pancakes, fruit, french toast, oatmeal, cereal, yogurt or ice cream. It is also perfect in tea, coffee, smoothies and cocktails. It dissolves instantly and does not require refrigeration. Since agave is 25% sweeter than sugar, begin with 1 teaspoon and adjust to taste.
Don’t forget to use Organic Blue Agave in your savory dishes, sauces and marinades too! You can even bake with Organic Blue Agave! Substitute ¾ of a cup of agave for 1 cup of refined white sugar. All you have to do is reduce the other liquids in your recipe by 1/3, reduce your oven temperature by 25°F and bake for a few minutes longer.
When looking to purchase Agave, make sure to look for USDA Organic, Non-GMO Verified, kosher and vegan certified products.
