Our Story

Agave nectar is regarded as one of the best natural sweeteners,

health-conscious consumers know it for its low glycemic index and many natural food advocates believe “Agave Nectar” is the answer for millions of people who need to cut down on their sugar intake.

 

What makes Agave nectar superior to sugar? Simple sugar is a processed sweetener that has no nutritive value, other than calories. Agave nectar has a desirable low-glycemic value of 27, compared with sucrose or sugar, which have

a value of 92! Agave nectar is assimilated more gradually into the bloodstream

than table sugar is, that means you are able to avert a sugar crash and the low energy and hunger that go along with it.

 

Health benefits of Agave nectar? Agave contains saponins and fructans both

these compounds are found in particular abundance in the Agave and various

other plant species, including ginseng, each of these have anti-inflammatory

and immune system-boosting properties, including antimicrobial capability.

 

Inulin is a type of fructan or fiber that has many health benefits. Studies

suggest that inulin can be effective in weight loss because of its low

impact on blood sugar and its ability to increase satiety and decrease

appetite.  Inulin is also associated with lowering cholesterol, reducing

the risk of certain cancers, and increasing the absorption of nutrients,

such as isoflavones, calcium and magnesium. In addition, fructans are

not destroyed in the stomach and may be a delivery system for drugs

to treat colon diseases such as ulcerative colitis, irritable bowel

syndrome and Crohn’s disease.

 

Not all Agave nectars are created equal. Not by a long shot. Not

surprisingly, we have created the best tasting agave nectar in the

universe, Alien Honey is a 100% Agave nectar that is great in tea or

coffee or drizzled on top of pancakes, but the great difference between

Alien Honey, 100% Agave nectar and other brands? Alien Honey

dissolves extremely will in cold liquids as well as in hot. And here’s

another fun fact, our agave is vegan, gluten-free and we are diabetic

friendly.

 

Don’t forget the glycemic value of agave nectar is 27, which can help

keep cravings for unhealthy foods away, which can assist in weight loss.
