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