Agave syrup is often substituted for sugar or honey in recipes. Vegans in particular commonly use agave syrup to replace honey in recipes. It is also used as a sweetener for cold beverages such as iced tea because it can dissolve quickly.
Agave nectars are sold in light, amber, dark, and raw varieties.
Light agave nectar has a mild, almost neutral flavor, and is therefore sometimes used in delicate tasting foods and drinks.
Amber agave nectar has a medium-intensity caramel flavor, and is therefore used in foods and drinks with stronger flavors.
Dark agave nectar has stronger caramel notes, and imparts a distinct flavor to dishes, such as some desserts, poultry, meat, and seafood dishes. Both amber and dark agave nectar are sometimes used "straight out of the bottle" as a topping for pancakes and waffles. Raw agave nectar also has a mild, neutral taste. It is produced at temperatures below 118 degrees F to protect the natural enzymes, so this variety is an appropriate sweetener for raw foodists.
Organic food is produced by farmers who emphasize the use of renewable resources and the conservation of soil and water to enhance environmental quality for future generations. Organic meat, poultry, eggs, and dairy products come from animals that are given no antibiotics or growth hormones. Organic food is produced without using most conventional pesticides; fertilizers made with synthetic ingredients or sewage sludge; bioengineering; or ionizing radiation.
Agave is the perfect sweetening option for those concerned with sugar in their diet or with cutting empty carbohydrates. Agave is superior to sugar because sugar is a processed sweetener that has no nutritive value, other than calories. And agave has a desirable low–glycemic index.
This means that when consumed, it won't cause a sharp rise or fall in blood sugar. USDA – Organic.
