Yummy, a delicious natural alternative to sugar. Our organic agave nectar (ah-gah-vay) is available in a choice of amber and mild, or dark and rich, now you can reach for the sweetest nectar, knowing it’s better for you.
You will find our organic agave nectar amber and mild is the ideal replacement for white sugar, while the dark and rich is great in place of brown sugar. And because agave nectar is so much sweeter than sugar, you can use a third less. Great news for your waistline!
On a hillside in Mexico, lives a spikey blue plant known as the Blue Webber agave plant. In the centre, is a heart shaped middle called the pinas. It is from here that the locals carefully extract the silky white juice. They then filter it, heat it a little and wait – you can’t rush the good stuff. After some time, the milky white juice turns into agave nectar concentrate. Just pure agave plant nectar. Nothing else at all! And this is why it’s so prized.
It has a fantastically low GI (Glycemic Index) of only 27, which means it won’t yo-yo your energy levels like sugar can.
To store simply keep in your kitchen cupboard, where it will be fine for at least 3 years … but once you open it, you may find it has a tendency to disappear rather quickly!
Our amber and mild agave nectar is a tongue-jinglingly delicious, sweeter than a honey-bee’s breakfast, 100% organic, natural fat-free sweetener – WOW!

Our rich and dark agave nectar is a smooth, maple-like syrup, which is delectably sweet, 100% organic and fat-free. Dark and tempting, it’s too good to resist.
As a rule of thumb, use this rich syrup whenever you would use brown sugar or maple syrup. It’s great on ice cream and in yoghurts and smoothies.

In fact, you’ll find more uses for it than we could list here … but that’s half the fun, finding out for yourself just how versatile it is!£2.50 | Add to cart ›
