Last year I fell for the agave syrup/nectar scam – it is purported to be a low GI, safe, natural sweetner.
Then I learned it has almost double the fructose content of High Fructose Corn Syrup (HFCS), which we have all been told to avoid. Read more at this link (or Google “agave expose”):
Seems like we can’t believe much that is pushed at us these days, and have to check everything out ourselves. My new trigger word that makes me run to the computer to search the product is “natural” which we all assume to mean safe and good. Un-uh – not so.
When I found out the truth, I dumped out two large, very expensive bottles of agave and resolved to be a smarter consumer. And now you can be smarter too!
Todo bien. (It’s all good.)
