8 Reasons to Avoid Agave Nectar
Contrary to popular belief, agave is not made from the dried sap of the agave plant. Rather it is made from the starchy root bulb. Not that a natural agave syrup made from the sap is indeed made in Mexico. However, it is very expensive and not widely available.
Conversion of the starchy agave root bulb into “nectar” requires a highly chemicalized and industrialized process. This method uses genetically modified enzymes. The process is very similar to the production of high fructose corn syrup (HFCS).
Amber colored agave nectar is made by burning the fructose (above 140F) as it is being refined. There is no gourmet quality to it and it certainly does not contain more minerals that the clear, light agave syrup. Blue agave is no better either.
Agave nectar is not raw even if labeled as such. Perhaps the reason is that the heat required to produce agave is below pasteurization temperature (161F) which then allows a misleading, untruthful “raw” label via a USDA loophole. Similar deceit is used by Organic Valley in the labeling of some of its cheeses which are labeled raw but, in fact, are not raw cheese at all.
As consumers are becoming more aware of the problems with agave, manufacturers are starting to use “chicory syrup” instead. Be on alert for agave labeled this way to purposely mislead and deceive.

I like this product a lot. I love Honey but am being mindful so I thought to try out other products. This is very sweet so you don't need to use a lot (a little goes a long way) and it tastes yummy. I am picky about tastes and was worried it would taste funny but it basically tastes like sugar. Nothing weird about it at all, will def use again :)

For someone with a sweet-tooth, this somewhat disappears and doesn't even taste sweet but I noticed that when I replaced table sugar and other sweeteners with agave syrup, I noticed how sweet it is. It's my absolute favourite - it works with everything, and especially my oats bowls with coconut milk

Very easy to use - easier than honey. I have it every morning on my oats with cinnamon
