Agave nectar became a fad in the not too recent past as a sugar substitute because it was deemed a healthier option. With the current understanding of fructose and its effects on blood sugar and cancer cells, agave is also a product to be used in moderation as its sugar content is over 50% fructose.
It is, however, quite flavorful and provides a unique taste to foods and beverages that sugar doesn’t have. Madhava produces non-GMO agave nectar and other agave products. Madhava Raw Agave Nectar 23.5 oz is one of the most popular agave products, in regular and light.
Stevia is a no-calorie sweetener extracted from the stevia plant that is 200 times sweeter than sugar in the same concentration. With the increased amount of sugar that is being consumed by society, stevia has become an increasingly popular ingredient to add sweetness without the calories or health detriments.
Pyure has created several varieties of stevia-based products for food use. The all-purpose stevia blend and stevia drops are great for sweetening drinks. Granular stevia gives the look and feel of sugar so you can stir it in your tea or coffee and watch it dissolve! And the bakeable blend is sepcifically formulated for baked goods.
The best part is, it is a product.
Use both Madhava and Pyure knowing that they are Non-GMO Project Verified.
