Member’s Mark™ Organic Agave Nectar (29 oz., 2 pk.) is an all-natural sweetener that is a sweeter alternative to white sugar, so you can use less to achieve the same amount of sweetness. This also makes it a lower-calorie sweetener when measured by sweetness per calorie. Agave nectar comes from the blue agave plant and Member’s Mark Organic Agave Nectar is bottled at the source of an expansive, native blue organic agave field in Jalisco, Mexico. Agave nectar is a delicious sweetener when used in place of sugar or honey, in your favorite tea, coffee, smoothies, homemade lemonade, homemade soda and mixed drinks. Beyond beverages, it can be used to drizzle over fresh fruit, oatmeal or yogurt parfaits. You could even try it over peanut butter toast or waffles as an alternative to maple syrup. Anything that could be a little sweeter can be made better with raw agave nectar.
Is This Light Agave Nectar?
Yes, this organic agave syrup is considered light for having only 30 grams of sugar per two tablespoons. This means there are 120 calories in two tablespoons. Depending on your preference, two tablespoons may be enough to sweeten a large teapot, a small pitcher of lemonade or a carafe of coffee.
Is Agave Nectar Low Glycemic?
Organic agave nectar is a low-glycemic sweetener, which means that your body’s insulin response is tempered in comparison to how it responds to high-glycemic foods such as corn syrup or white sugar. A slower and more even insulin response means that your body will not have energy spikes followed by energy crashes, as it is delivering sugar to your blood at a steady rate.
Does Organic Agave Syrup Dissolve Easily?
Yes, even in cold beverages this agave nectar will dissolve easily and not harden or crystallize. Tired of your iced coffee accumulating a big pile of sugar or honey at the base of the cup and never fully diffusing sweetness into each sip? Well, with agave nectar you can achieve an evenly distributed and clearly dissolved sweetness in every sip.
