Agave: What's the Scoop About this Sweetener?

Posted Dec 17 2009 12:00am

Agave_syrup1One of the most frequently asked questions I get is about agave, the honey-colored liquid that's popular with many health-minded people.

Inevitably, the subject of agave comes up whenever I lecture or take on a new client.

Generally, these health-minded people have heard wonderful things about agave, especially that it's low on the glycemic index.

You, too, as a health-minded person -- I assume you are since you're reading this blog -- may want to know:

  • Is agave safe?
  • Can I use agave as a sugar substitute?

For those of you who are fans of agave, my short answer is this: I don't recommend it.
