Roar Superfoods - Raw Organic Cold-Pressed Dark Agave Syrup
Unlike other sweeteners that store their energy as starch, Agave syrup stores it’s energy as inulin. Inulin is typically found in roots or rhyzomes. There is no starch in Agave Syrup. Inulin bypasses digestion in the stomach and small intestine and is actually digested in the large intestine. Inulin actually feeds the probiotic bacteria in our digestive system. It has a low glycaemic index, so is a viable alternative sweetener for those with blood sugar disorders such as Diabetes. Agave also tastes delicious - a little like maple syrup and little like caramel or fairy floss. Agave can be used as a sugar replacement in any recipe - use 25% less agave than you would use sugar. Is great in raw deserts, particularly raw chocolate!! Make sure your agave is the Wild Maguey (Salmiana) variety of succulent rather than the Blue Webber variety, that it is organic and organically processed at low temperature
Our Dark Agave Syrup
Agave syrup is a delicious low glycaemic inulin sweetener (less than 30 on the GI scale as opposed to 66 for cane sugar) .Our Agave comes from the Wild Maguey (Salmiana) variety of succulent. It is wild-crafted, certified organic and organically processed at a low temperature. It is raw - vacuumed evaporated at 45 degrees. It contains 70 - 75% fructose unlike the Blue webber variety which can contain up to 90%.
We supply dark agave syrup. The light varieties have undergone more filtration than the dark agave which is why it is richer in minerals and darker in colour.
