About Agave

Organic Sweetener

Agave belongs to agavaceas plant’s family. Unlike what some people think about the agave, it is not a cactus. Its leafs are long and fibrous, and it’s typical color is Green-blue.

Nowadays, there are more than 300 species of agave plants that can be used as a primary source for the production of tequila in the American continent. In ancient times, agave was also used by the Aztecs in numerous ways due to its healing and nutritious properties that can now be enjoyed in organic products.

When the agave has grown 7 to 10 years, the leaves of the plant are cut off, revealing the core of the plant called “pina” or “honey water”, which is processed to form syrup similar to maple honey in flavor, but it taste more delicate. Also, compared with common sugar, the agave is 1 ¼ times sweeter, so it has become a popular sweetener for energy drinks, teas and some nutritious meals.
