BLue agave Nectar (Light)
Agave nectar is the honey-like sweetener for the common vegan. This 100% plant-based sweetener originated from the blue agave plant, the same cactus from which tequila is derived. The magic factor for this sweetener option is its comparatively lower glycemic index. With a lower-than-average blood sugar spike effect, you'll escape the common sugar-rush experienced from other sweeteners and sugars. Additionally, agave nectar is sweeter than most other sugars (about 1.5 times sweeter than regular table sugar), so less is needed to achieve the same taste, which saves calories for those looking to manage their weight. Plus, we can all rest soundly knowing that, by choosing agave, we are not capitalizing on the fruits of labor from the hard-working honey-bee. Live and let live people!
