Information on Agave

Tuesday, March 06, 2012

I have a bottle in my cupboard and don't use it very often. I also have Stevia, maple syrup and local raw honey. I don't use them very often either but I keep reading to find out which one is the best. I think it is depending on the circumstance, person and need. But here is a pretty good article on agave. It seems like it is just going to be a one sided view against agave but they do give it its due also. So just thought I'd share.

This is the last sentence:

"In the end, agave may be appropriate as an occasional sugar alternative, especially for diabetics and anyone else specifically avoiding glucose. But it’s far from the holy grail of sweetness some may have assumed."

This info comes from Greatist.com.
