A Rebuttal about Agave

I accidentally stumbled upon this article/letter on the web today. Though it is from an agave manufacturer, I believe that not everything is always black or white. So in everything there is balance and the real driving key is the quantity of sugar — sugar in any form — that you ingest every day.  I recommend that you mix it up.. some good raw agave, raw sugar, raw honey, stevia, and maybe even some xylitol if you are okay with sugar alcohols.

Shocking! There is much misinformation about agave syrup and its production process.

The Truth

We’ve been following with interest the article “Shocking! This ‘Tequila’ Sweetener is Far Worse than High Fructose Corn Syrup” the last couple of days. It is amazing how powerful internet is in terms of informing or in this case misinforming people.

The Sad Claims about Agave Nectar

During the past five year of practice, I’ve recommended agave nectar as
the sweetener of choice, having learned of its low glycemic index and
therefore, its benefits over table sugar, commercial honey and of
course, high fructose corn syrup (HFCS). This product of this noble
Mexican cactus, famed for it’s fermented beverage, tequilla, has since
then, replaced sugar, maple syrup and honey in many pantries across the
country.
