Agave(AH-GAH-VAY) is an exquisite, mineral-rich nectar that comes from the core of the blue agave plant. Similar in appearance to the aloe vera plant and known as “aguamiel” (honey water) in Mexico, Sunfood Blue Agave is higher in fructose-producing carbohydrates than other varieties. Agave contains valuable nutrients, minerals, and enzymes that can be diminished during high heat processing, which is why we at Sunfood use state-of-the-art low-temperature technology to protect the integrity of our agave product. Agave nectar possesses anti-inflammatory and immune system-boosting properties, including antimicrobial capability. Frequently used as a natural low-glycemic sweetener and an ideal alternative to highly processed and refined sugars, it can be used moderately by anyone, including those that are diabetic. Our organic agave nectar is available in Amber or Dark.
