Organic Blue Agave Nectar Light is a versatile sweetener extracted from the “piña”- core of the Blue Agave plant; with a delicate, neutral flavor and light color profile. The primary sugar composition is fructose based, sugars found naturally in fruits and vegetables, which yield a low glycemic food index and maintain a steady energy balance during digestion. Organic Blue Agave Nectar Light is non–crystallizing, quick dissolving, has a sweetness value 25% greater than sugar and a viscosity slightly thinner than honey. It gives food technologists the ability to reduce or substitute highly processed sweetening agents and decreases the amount of additives and preservatives on the label declaration. It is a hypo-allergenic, gluten free, multi-purpose sweetener suitable for low sugar foods and a Vegan diet enhancing delicate to medium flavor profiles in beverages, smoothies, healthy snacks, sauces, dressings, deserts, and cooked candies. Organic Blue Agave Nectar Light is not genetically modified and does not contain any genetically engineered additives or ingredients. It is Kosher and certified organic by QAI and under USDA-NOP and EU programs.
