Makes good wine — Recipe suggestion

Product Good, Bottle Awful
No sugar crash!
Agave Nectar has a very low glycemic index. This causes the sugars to be absorbed into the body much slower. I have found that this prevents me from ‘crashing’ after a sugar rush.
Glycemic index is a system that ranks foods by the speeds at which their carbohydrates are converted into glucose in the body.
I use this just about everywhere I would use sugar, including my coffee. I also make chocolate bars using it with bittersweet chocolate.
The Best We’ve Found!
Natural Sweetener, Low Calorie
What I like about Madhava Agave Nectar is that it is processed naturally, without the use of chemicals. We use it in soups, glazes, and for baking. We found the pricing on Amazon very attractive in comparison with local health food stores.
Great Taste, Naturally Sweet
Love this Nectar
Feel Better about my choice.
I highly recommend it to anyone, children as well. Amazon had the best price.
Madhave Agave Nectar
Better than Sugar and low GCI
It is liquid, so it dissolves easier. It is low GCI, so it is probably better for everyone, but especially anyone who is subject to sugar crash and diabetes. (Sometimes people eat a load of sugar, then crash because their body rebels.) It has a nice taste. It is natural. (I understand that white sugar is bleached.) In being natural, it does not take away from the healing properties of green tea. It can be used in baking, although I have not done so. I have seen a book out there to use for baking.
It is certified USDA organic. This almost 12 oz size is a nice sized bottle — about 5″ of syrup (almost 7″ high if you measure to the bottle top) and about 2″ diameter. It is also available in raspberry flavor, which I have at work (yum).
I like it better than the taste of sugar. Sugar tastes much sweeter to me. This tastes just right and a little goes a long way. 60 calories in a tablespoon but it is low GCI and you don’t need much. Ingredients are: pure organic agave nectar, organic natural flavor, natural color, citric acid. No long words I cannot pronounce! There’s a good thing!
In case you didn’t know it, agave nectar comes from cactus. Guess, what? It sure is easier to buy it in the bottle than to squeeze it out of the cactus leaf. I am still picking those sticky things out of my hands! 🙂
BTW, the bottle is sturdy plastic, easily transportable, and now has a nice flip open and closed top.
Whether you buy the amber, light, or raspberry, they are all good. Light has the same 60 calories, so don’t think you are going to save any by buying light. You might be healthier by buying agave products though. Tastes good, too!
Great product everyone loves it
Better than sugar
After using Agave (in place of honey and syrup) for over a year, I accidentally found it on Amazon. I now buy it only through Amazon as it saves me 50% over my local grocery market, and it comes directly to my door. Also, there is no shipping expense, as a case meets the free shipping requirement.
Agave Nectar has a pleasant taste similar to, but somewhat milder than, honey. It has a lower GI than honey and syrups, for anyone wishing or needing to watch their sugar intake, as well.
Yum Yum Yum
I would buy it again.
ARGUABLY THE OPTIMAL NATURAL SWEETENER
There’s a new sheriff in town when it comes to natural, low-glycemic sweetners, and its name is AGAVE!
First and foremost, it tastes great! Will rescue the taste of anything.
Add to that: scientific research reveals it is low on the glycemic index,digests like a long-chain polysaccharide, can prevent cavities, can be used hot or cold.
The price has come down into the affordable range.
