WHAT IS IT?

This Agave is harvested from the Wild Maguey species by the Aztecs in the Ixmiquilpan region of Mexico. The Wild Maguey is central to their culture - they've been harvesting it for thousands of years. The dark unfiltered Agave has more minerals than the light filtered version, in addition to a richer, wilder flavour.

Our Agave is processed at below 40ÂșC using a vacuum evaporator and certified organic vegan enzyme as a catalyst to concentrate the natural sugars into a stable form. Agave Syrup has a low Glycemic Index (GI) score at

Our unfiltered Dark Agave syrup has a wide spectrum of minerals and phytonutrients; Dr Mercola is erroneous when he states that Dark Agave is burnt. In fact, the light and clear varieties of Agave have undergone filtration, which is why they are lighter in colour. The Dark Agave is unfiltered and richer in minerals, which results in its darker colour.

Unlike high fructose corn syrup that stores its energy as starch, Agave syrup stores its energy as Inulin, also known as Fructans or Levulose. Inulin is typically found in roots or rhizomes. There is no starch in Agave syrup. Inulin bypasses digestion in the stomach and small intestine and is actually digested in the large intestine. Inulin is beneficial in that it feeds the probiotic bacteria in our digestive system. This is absorbed slowly into the bloodstream giving it a low glycemic index. Therefore it is diabetic friendly. It is also the perfect sweetener for children, as it does not significantly raise blood sugar levels, preventing the highs and lows associated with sugar intake and instead provides a sustained, steady source of energy.

Agave syrup is a concentrated cactus juice. Like all concentrated foods, Loving Earth believes that Agave should be consumed in moderation. We believe that Agave syrup is a healthier sweetener alternative compared to cane sugar. When used respectfully, Agave syrup does have health promoting properties. Overconsumption and inappropriately using Agave is what leads to health issues and puts our bodies out of balance. Agave should be used as part of a balanced diet.

Doctor Mercola states that "Agave Nectar as a final product is mostly chemically refined fructose". The sugars in our agave nectar come from the breakdown of the inulin molecule through the introduction of the certified vegan enzyme. It is in no way chemically refined; there are no chemicals involved in any part of the production or packaging process. Our growers do not use any chemicals, ionic resins, sulphuric/hydrochloric acid, dicalite or clarimex in the manufacturing of our Agave syrup. Australian Certified Organic have audited the harvesting and processing of our Agave syrup, and have verified that our Agave syrup is pure and that no chemicals or genetically modified organisms are used. They have also verified that it is harvested sustainably. The only way in which it is refined is that excess moisture is removed from the juice of the plant to prevent fermentation.
