The Sweetness of Agave Syrup

Its delicate flavor resembles that of honey, but with a more fluid texture. The aroma of agave syrup is generally described as less pronounced than that of honey, making it a versatile sweetener for a variety of recipes.

Origin and Production

Agave syrup is a natural sweetener derived from the sap of the agave plant, a succulent primarily native to Mexico. The agave plant belongs to the Agavaceae family and is characterized by its thick, fleshy leaves arranged in a rosette. Agave syrup is extracted by collecting the sap of the agave plant, usually from the Agave tequilana species, also known as blue agave. This sap is then filtered to remove impurities and heated at low temperatures to transform it into a thick and sweet syrup.

Agave Syrup or Aztec Honey Water

Agave syrup is the nectar of the Agave salmeana, a sacred cactus for the Aztecs, who offered it as a gift to the gods. Agave salmeana, more commonly known as maguey, met the thousand needs of the Aztecs, it was a true treasure for them. The fibers were used to make fabrics, the crushed leaves made into paste produced white paper like papyrus, the roots were eaten, as was the sap.
