Agave Nectar, which is reported to have caught up with the trends of natural sweetener, apparently claims to reduce cravings for sugar. Facts point out to the primary necessity of it being low in glycemic index to be a replacement to sugar. The functionalities of this nectar in being low in calories, low in GI, naturally sweet in the raw and unprocessed form, a fat-burner and a laxative, makes it more than just an alternate to sugar and honey.
What is remarkable is the quality of the sweetener to be flexible enough in foodstuffs, during the production process and after it to lure consumers with its healthy edge and protector of a food’s sensory properties.
The American consumer can bank upon this natural sweetener to not only manage calories but also cut calories, for the very claims of the nectar to reduce weight when less than a spoon is added to non-acid foods and beverages.
At the outset when aspartames are on fire for being a carcinogen, this nectar comes as a possible source of revenue for the food and culinary industry. It also has prospects of attracting consumers to its capacity to enhance flavors of desserts, cereals, fruits, yogurts, pancakes and waffles without perking-up calories.
