Organic Nectars  premium agave syrup is a delicious plant-based, all-natural, unrefined, chemical-free, gluten-free sweetener that's certified organic, vegan and non-dairy kosher, AND is low glycemic, making it suitable for people monitoring their sugar. This natural liquid sweetener is made purely from the extract of the Mexican agave plant. A typical serving is 1 teaspoon, which contains 20 calories, 5 grams of total carbs, 0 grams of fat and 0 grams protein. Our agave is sweeter than sugar, so 1/2 to 2/3 cup will replace 1 cup of sugar.

Organic Nectars Agave has been used as a blood purifier, to improve digestion and as an anti-inflammatory against arthritis.   Our Agave Nectar is less viscous than honey, making it easy to pour and blend into cooked and raw foods. And the taste is generally preferred to other natural sweeteners.   Our agave nectar has a delicious neutral flavor so it won't overpower the flavor of the food or drink it's being blended with. Try it in coffee, tea, fruit drinks, even mixed drinks. Use it in baking and cooking. Great also as a syrup substitute. For baking, its moisture retention properties are comparable to those of honey. Our agave nectar imparts a silky, smooth texture to baked goods and often better definition of other natural flavors.

Organic Nectars Agave Nectar is harvested from living plants. The top of the plant is sliced off and the core is hollowed out. The plant is then capped with a stone. It then secretes its nectar into the center of the plant rather than into flowers like most plants do. It collects in the hollow center for a few days, after which the liquid is removed similar to tapping a tree to collect maple syrup. The production of agave nectar is very similar to how a bee creates honey. The bee adds enzymes to the complex sugars of nectar, which changes it into the simple sugars making honey. Enzymatic action is also what causes the complex sugar found in agave juice to be changed into a simple sugar sweetener and become agave nectar.  Agave has been used by natives for centuries. In fact, back in 499 A.D. a Buddhist monk named Hwui Shan is believed to have voyaged to North America, almost 1,000 years before Columbus, and named the continent Fu Sheng, the Chinese name for the agave plant, considered sacred. Agave Nectar is harvested from the blue agave and wild agave plants, and is mostly used in a fermented state to create tequila.  Preferred by many health-conscious consumers, nutritionists and chefs, agave syrup has a long shelf life and will not crystalize when stored in a cool, dry and dark place.
