How to use

Agave syrup is 1.4 to 1.6 times sweeter than sugar, and may be substituted for sugar in recipes. Because it comes from a plant, it is widely utilised as an alternative to honey, for those following a vegan lifestyle, and is often added to some breakfast cereals as a binding agent.

Other interesting information

These syrups are sold in light, amber, dark, and raw varieties. The light syrup has a mild and almost neutral flavor, and is therefore sometimes used in delicate-tasting dishes and beverages. The amber syrup has a medium-intensity caramel flavor, and is used in dishes and drinks with stronger flavors. The dark syrup has even stronger caramel notes and imparts a distinct flavor to dishes, being used in some desserts, poultry, meat, and seafood dishes. Both amber and dark agave syrups are sometimes used “straight out of the bottle” as a topping for pancakes, waffles, and French toast. The dark version is unfiltered and therefore contains a higher concentration of the agave plant’s minerals.
