Agave, delightful dark syrup resembles maple syrup in color and fluidity. However, it is less expensive and a good alternative for those concerned about glycemic index. Some folks question the health benefits of agave. I believe our brand is processed in a healthier manner and is better for you than high fructose syrups on the market. Our Agave reads 35 on the GI. Honey and sugar are 105 and 100, respectively. Combine ¼ t of maple extract with 12 oz of Agave for THE BEST tasting pancake syrup, as well as a much healthier alternative to the high fructose corn syrup variety.
