Dark agave nectar is a mineral rich, dark syrup with a vanilla-like aroma and a hint of maple syrup flavor. It is truly one of a kind!
100% of this product is made from the world-renowned blue agave plant, composed of 85% fructose! Blue Agave is higher in fructose-producing carbohydrates than other types of agave, and is considered to be the finest agave in the world. It is unprocessed and minimally filtered, thus retaining valuable nutrients, minerals and enzymes that are absent from many other agave products and sweeteners. This product is made using state-of-the-art low-temperature processing technology making it the least heat-exposed dark agave product on the market.
Agave syrup is a natural product that can sweeten any type of beverage or food. It is derived from the carbohydrates present in the agave plant. To produce organic agave syrup, juice is expressed from the core of the agave plant. Compared to the delicate taste of our Amber Agave, a slightly longer processing period produces the rich, dark color and a tempting maple-like flavor in the Dark Agave Syrup.
Our farmers in Mexico use HPLC to make chromatographic studies on sugars, monitoring closely the mineral and sugar concentrations of our agave syrups in order to insure they are the best available anywhere worldwide. The maximum processing temperature is 118F.
Dark Agave is the most unique, natural, healthy, completely vegan sweetener in the world!
|Benefits||Dark agave has a relatively low glycemic index (even when compared to other agave products), meaning that it is metabolized more slowly into the bloodstream than other sweeteners. This special quality makes it a valuable resource for diabetics, people with hypoglycemia, or anyone who is concerned with maintaining an even blood-sugar level. It is also a valuable resource for all raw-food chefs and lovers of fine cuisine, bringing subtle maple and molasses flavors to any dish or drink. Agave also has unique hydrating properties. Ancient inhabitants of the Mexican region believed that it purified the body and soul.
|Recommended Usage||Agave nectar can be used to replace sugar in any recipe. It is very smooth, and mixes in easily with cacao nibs, or any beverage or smoothie. Use anywhere you would use a sweetener!|
