As greater health consciousness spreads throughout the nation, fears surrounding high-fructose corn syrup and white sugar are at an all time high. You’ve probably seen an increase in “natural” sweeteners on the marketplace, and buzz surrounding organic agave nectar.
But what exactly is agave nectar? Chances are that you’ve at least tasted agave, even if you didn’t recognize it. With over 300 species of agave plants growing in Mexico, it’s most frequently recognized as the plant from which tequila is made. However, the nectar from the plant is incredibly sweet and is known as “honey water.”
Historically, the Aztecs believed that agave nectar was a gift from the gods. They used it to flavor their foods, drinks, and even used it as a medicinal tool. Agave nectar isn’t actually taken from the plant until it’s at least 7-10 years old – but hey, age is a good thing when it comes to fine beverages, right?
