Raw, certified organic, unfiltered Dark Agave Syrup (also called Dark Agave Nectar).
A mineral rich, dark syrup with a vanilla-like aroma and a hint of maple syrup flavor. Truly one of a kind!
100% of this product is made from the world-renowned blue agave plant, composed of 85% fructose!
Blue Agave is higher in fructose-producing carbohydrates than other types of agave, and is considered to be the finest agave in the world. It is unprocessed, unfiltered and natural, thus retaining valuable nutrients, minerals and enzymes that are absent from many other agave products and sweeteners. This product is made using state-of-the-art low-temperature processing technology making it the least heat-exposed dark agave product on the market.
Agave syrup is a natural product that can sweeten any type of beverage or food. It is derived from the carbohydrates present in the agave plant. To produce organic agave syrup, juice is expressed from the core of the agave plant. The juice is then selected to become dark agave syrup or is filtered to create a light agave syrup.
Dark agave has a relatively low glycemic index (even when compared to other agave products), meaning that it is metabolized more slowly into the bloodstream than other sweeteners. This special quality makes it a valuable resource for diabetics, people with hypoglycemia, or anyone who is concerned with maintaining an even blood-sugar level. It is also a valuable resource for all raw-food chefs and lovers of fine cuisine, as dark agave is delicious and brings subtle flavor and depth to any dish or drink. Agave also has unique hydrating properties. Ancient inhabitants of the Mexican region believed that it purified the body and soul.
Our farmers in Mexico use HPLC to make chromatographic studies on sugars, monitoring closely the mineral and sugar concentrations of our agave syrups in order to insure they are the best available anywhere worldwide.
Dark Agave Syrup tastes somewhat like molasses or maple syrup with vanilla.
It is very smooth, mixes in easily with cacao nibs, any beverage or smoothie, and can be used to replace sugar in traditional recipes. Dark Agave is the most unique, natural, healthy, completely vegan sweetener in the world!
ABOUT ESSENTIAL LIVING FOODS.
At Essential Living Foods, we believe that business needs to have a positive impact on the world, using the power of commerce to improve lives, communities, and ecosystems. We strive to be a “good corporate citizen” in a multitude of ways, creating positive social impact with our business model, the partners we choose, giving back a portion of our revenues and profits, how we treat our employees, and the nutritional and healing properties of our products. Everyone who works here feels great about doing something good in the world while earning a decent living at the same time.
Essential Living Foods started as an importer of unique organic foods, and from the beginning we’ve built our business on paying fair prices to our farming partners. We do our best to go directly to the source whenever possible, bypassing middleman so we can deliver the best value to our customers AND pay premium prices to the growers. There are a few different certifying organizations out there putting a third party seal on these fair trade practices. We are working with all of them to get these seals in place, but even while that is in process, you can rest assured that your purchases from Essential Living Foods is supporting farmers through equitable trade practices!
We don’t just pay fair prices for our foods – we share our success with our farming communities by giving back a portion of what we make.
Sustainability is a big word for us. It means that we have to sustain our business, because if we aren’t profitable and growing, we won’t exist in the future to continue doing the good that we’re doing. It also means that we want to do everything we can to not deplete non-renewable resources and to rebuild and protect fragile ecosystems. We do this at the farm level by the organic agriculture techniques we use, as well as things like powering our office on solar power and buying carbon credits to offset all of our corporate air travel and all of our food import transportation carbon emissions.
Money flows around and around. We make money from the sales of our products, and we try to do as much good as we can with how and from whom we purchase our foods from. But aside from buying our amazing, healthy, organic superfoods, we also spend a lot of money each year on more mundane items like banking services, legal services, etc. We try to find companies of a like mind to ours to work with. We find that they understand us better, and hence can offer us better service, and we feel good that we can keep the prosperity flowing to other companies doing good in the world. Check out this link to see just some of these great partners we have!
