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.

local tequila factory.
