Wholesome Sweetners - Agave

I love using this product.

Wholesome Sweeteners Organic Blue Agave is a natural sweetener extracted from the core of the Blue Agave plant.
• Sweet, mild nectar is 25% sweeter than sugar (so more is less!)
• A perfect multi-purpose sweetener for beverages, fresh fruit and general table-top use
• Glycemic index of 39 or less; Natural sweetness without the blood sugar spike
• Blue Agave is non-crystallizing and quick dissolving.
Blue Agave has a bright sweetness that quickly dissipates. Perfect in baked goods, fresh fruit and smoothies, salad dressings and savory sauces.
Cooking tips:
• Use as a one-for-one replacement for sugar, then adjust to your own personal taste. Some chefs prefer to use 75% as much Blue Agave nectar as they would sugar in a recipe, but others prefer a straight 1:1 replacement.
• Reduce the other liquids in a recipe by up to 30%.
• Cook lower and slower: reduce your baking temperature by about 25 degrees and bake for a little longer.
