What Is Vegan Agave Syrup?

The word ‘agave’ comes from the Greek word ‘agavos’, which means ‘illustrious’. To the Aztecs, agave was a symbol of long life and health. In ancient Mexico, the agave plant was worshiped and thought to purify the body and soul.

Agave syrups are produced by cutting the leaves off the agave plant when it has been growing for between 7 and 14 years. The juice from these sustainably grown plants is extracted, filtered then heated to break its components into sugars. It’s then concentrated into a syrupy liquid that has a consistency like honey. Its color is amber but can vary slightly in lightness.

The indigenous people of Mesoamerica have celebrated agave syrup for millennia and if you buy agave syrup you’ll know why! Organic agave syrups are an entirely naturally occurring sweetener and are often used as vegan honey alternatives. It’s also a vegan alternative to regular cane sugar, which can be processed using bovine bone. Vegan agave has become a mainstream alternative to high fructose corn syrup or sugar.

How Healthy Is Agave Syrup?

There are a number of reasons why you should buy agave syrups! Aside from being totally delicious and 100% plant-based, it’s rich in vitamins C, D, and E as well as calcium, iron, zinc, and magnesium. It also has a lower glycemic index than conventional sugar.

Studies have shown that agave syrup may produce less insulin and contribute less to weight gain compared to regular sugar. This is because agave contains less glucose, which means the body absorbs it into the bloodstream more slowly. This means it doesn’t cause such a large and rapid spike in insulin as regular cane sugar. If in any doubt about how agave might affect your own health, please consult a medical professional or nutritionist.

How Should I Store Agave Syrup?

Agave has a very long shelf life but it needs to be stored carefully to keep its flavor intact. Store your agave in a dry, cool place away from direct sunlight. We suggest storing your vegan agave in a pantry or kitchen cupboard. There is no need to store agave in the fridge. Always seal the bottle after opening and ensure it’s properly sealed as spillages lead to a sticky mess!

You will know your agave has gone bad if you see mold or discoloration, or it smells or tastes funny. The precise length of time your agave lasts depends on the quality of the agave and how it was made. Luckily our vegan agave is all the best of quality so should last a long time!

Top Agave Syrup Brands

We have a range of vegan agave syrup to suit all purposes and tastes. Organic agave comes in a range of flavor and color profiles.

  • Wholesome - Organic Blue Agave is made with 100% organic blue agave nectar. The syrup is not actually blue, it’s just derived from the blue version of the agave plant. The raw version is darker in color with a more powerful caramelly flavor - great for margarita cocktails!
  • Cadia Agave Nectar Light is another great light agave syrup. Light agave syrup is also great for adding to salad dressings, sauces, and anything else that needs a little sweetness.

Can a diabetic person have agave syrup?

Agave syrup is low on the glycemic index so may play a role in helping you control your blood sugar levels when compared to regular cane sugar. This means that agave syrup can usually be a healthy part of a balanced diet if consumed strictly in moderation. Much like with regular sugar, people with diabetes will have to limit their intake of agave syrup and speak to a medical professional if in any doubt.

Does agave syrup raise blood sugar levels?

Agave contains less glucose than regular sugar so the body absorbs it more slowly. This means it doesn’t cause such a large and rapid spike in insulin as regular sugar. And this in turn means it may be more suitable for diabetics than regular sugar. However, it should still be consumed in careful moderation. Speak to a medical professional if you are unsure about how agave might affect your health.
