Wholesome Sweeteners Organic Raw Blue Agave nectar is a low-glycemic sweetener produced from organically grown and processed Blue Agave (Agave tequilana var. Weber) plants. The "Weber Azul" is a cactus-like plant that grows in the Jalisco region of Mexico; it's been used for more than 5000 years to sustain the region's inhabitants.
It is 25% sweeter than sugar, so less is needed. It is certified Organic and GMO-Free, and appropriate for vegan and plant-based diets. It is stable, non-crystallizing and quick dissolving. And it has a fantastic taste!
Use as a one-for-one replacement for sugar, then adjust to your own personal taste. Some chefs prefer to use 75% as much Blue Agave nectar as they would sugar in a recipe, but others prefer a straight 1:1 replacement. Reduce the other liquids in a recipe by up to 30%. Cook lower and slower: reduce your baking temperature by about 25 degrees and bake for a little longer.
