This unadulterated natural sweetener is brought to you by Indigo Herbs as pure Organic Raw Agave Nectar Syrup. Forming the back bone of our natural sweetener range Agave can be a fantastic natural alternative to refined cane sugar or honey. Indigo Herbs Organic Agave Syrup is a ‘Raw’ product meaning that it is processed under a low temperature with less filtering and is considered to be fit for consumption for those on a raw food diet.

 

Although Agave Nectar has a relatively short history as an alternative to sugar, it has been a food source since the time of the Aztecs who regarded it as one of the divine foods given to them by their gods. From this period in South American history up until present day the peoples of Mexico continue to use this plant as a source of food and even clothing. At present the most known use of Agave is to make Tequila. It has only been recently that the plant has been utilised for its sweet properties. It takes approximately 8 to 10 years for the Agave plant to reach maturity and the core of or ‘piña’ be processed as a sweetener. Agave is nearly twice as sweet as honey but less viscous making it easier to dissolve and mix.

 

Agave is a spiny succulent that grows up to 3.5m tall. The plant has long fleshy leaves in rosettes with short stems, up to 2 meters long with light greenish-grey/blue colour. Leaves are armed with spiny teeth up to 1cm long and terminal spines up to 5cm long. Flowers are yellow, up to 10cm long, in clusters on inflorescence branches. Fruits can be up to 5cm long, oblong with short beaks at tip, full of black seeds.

Integrating Superfoods into your daily diet is simple and easy. Superfoods are particularly dense in nutrients, and free from any bulking agents or fillers. By adding superfoods to your daily diet you can fortify your food with super nutrition. Try replacing breakfast with a superfood smoothie. The smoothie can be made with a base of nut milk, seed milk or non-dairy milk such as rice milk, alternatively the main body of the smoothie can be created with fruit or vegetable juices.

Then additional superfood and herb powders can be added to fortify the smoothie with extra beneficial properties, the powders are largely dissolvable and can be scooped in and then blended or shaken until fully mixed in. Superfoods can be easily added to breakfast cereals such as porridge, muesli or granola. The powders, berries, grains, seeds and nuts can also be added to soups, salads, stews, curries, and used as toppings for any meal. Think about what you can replace in your daily diet with Superfoods. For full instructions go to our How to use Superfoods page.

Use in cooking and food preparation as you would another sweetener. However be aware that Agave syrup is sweeter than honey so less is needed.

Serving:

Use as directed in a recipe or for sweetening beverages. Be aware that this Organic Raw Agave Syrup is much sweeter and so less is needed.

Manufacture Process

This Organic Raw Agave Syrup is quite a bit different from normal Agave syrup that can be found in other shops. Using less heat and filtering in the process means that Indigo Herbs Agave is a raw food and has as slightly different taste. After the leaves and the root has been cut off from the core or piña, the plant can be fully processed. Only the piña is used and is mechanically crushed so that the sticky juice can be filtered. The next step is vacuum evaporation where by the excess water is extracted at low heat. The growing and processing of this Agave syrup is certified organic and totally raw. All steps are strictly monitored and tests are carried out on the final product to ensure that this is quite possibly some of the best Agave Syrup on the market.

Not used this product yet but I assume this is a good quality agave as not only is it raw and organic it is much darker than other agaves

I don't like this on top of pancakes as an alternative to maple syrup because it tastes quite herbal, remind me of a caugh medicine I had as a kid. But when used as a sweetner in cooked/baked foods, it's lovely!

Good to do business with you
I am impressed and grateful that my echinacea bottles come wrapped in a corrugated cardboard and no longer bubble wrap which is very bad for the environment. If you can do it Indigo then other companies should be able to follow your example. Well done you. My order arrived very quickly and I placed my order on the phone with a friendly efficient member of staff.

Been ordering teas and herbs regularly…
Been ordering teas and herbs regularly from Indigo Herbs for a couple of years now and keep returning as they are reliable, with a great range of good quality products, with plenty of advice on their website for how to use the less familiar herbs.
