* Agave syrup is something I use quite regularly. It dissolves quickly and is 1.5 times sweeter than sugar, so you need less, so be careful. Agave syrup comes from the juice of the Blue Agave plant, the same plant that gives us tequila. It is processed at low temperatures to preserve the enzymes, vitamins and minerals. The resulting syrup is rich in magnesium, potassium, iron and calcium. Vegans like to use Agave nectar, because it is a plant product. Agave syrup has a caramel corn syrup flavour, but is thinner in viscosity. They say it is a safe sweetener for diabetics( it has a low glycemic index) because it does not spike blood sugar levels. But look it up yourself on the internet if you are curious, there is a lot of information out there. Like someone once said, “you can eat almost anything in moderation”.
