Agave Syrup

Short Description

Our Blue Agave is grown in the high altitude, mineral rich soil of Jalisco, Mexico. After years of maturing, the piña’s sap is centrifugally extracted, double filtered and processed at low temperature to preserve the plant's natural integrity.

Process

After picking, the piña is then cleaned and pressed for the juice. The agave juice is “cooked” or hydrolyzed which turns the juice into sweet nectar. When the juice is heated, the inulin turns into fructose and thickens until syrupy. The filtering process that takes place afterward determines the final product's flavor and color. The more the Agave is filtered, the lighter it is in appearance, while less filtered agave contains more plant solids, giving it a distinct amber color.

Use

Agave syrup has floral notes of citrus and vanilla, can be used as an all-purpose sweetener and is naturally low glycemic.

Source

Central Mexico is home to the blue agave plant, where they are grown and harvested throughout the year. It can take up to seven years for the carbohydrates in the core to become concentrated enough to harvest. When ready to be picked, the long stalks are trimmed away from the piña and discarded right in the fields. This practice helps restore nutrients in the soil and reduces erosion.
