Agave syrup is sweeter than honey although it is generally a little less runny, made from the same plant that is used to make tequila. It is ideal for sweetening drinks, pouring on cereal and adding to baking. As agave syrup has a lower Glycaemic Index than most other sweeteners it is the sweetener to choose in moderation if you are wanting to control your weight.

Agave Syrup - Mon 31st Mar 2008 I was anxious to find a sugar substituted that was least harmful after scares about almost all those on wide sale and widely promoted. About half a teaspoonful or less of light syrup is fine for a cup of tea or coffee if you liked sweetener in these drinks and I have found agave syrup excellent for stewed fruit and smoothies.I would be glad to have some recipes for baking and cooking tips. Alas, the syrup is fairly expensive as far as I am concerned, so I am keeping it for myself! Maybe the cost would come down if the likes of Delia could be persuaded to recommend it.

A good alternative - Thu 16th Feb 2012 I am trying to consume less sugars and I heard agave was a good option. It is delicious- a nice natural sweetener. I also want to try stevia -both are good options for smoothies and raw cooking. Reviewer's Name: Zuzu
- Sun 22nd Jul 2012 Lovely sweet taste, a good sugar substitute which is lower GI. Be aware, that this is not a low calorie food though. Reviewer's Name: Rochelle
Tasty and not too strong - Sat 3rd Nov 2012 This is a delightful syrup - not too strong or sweet and yet not so mild that you feel the need to add more then you'd prefer. I use it in tea, coffee and on top of porridge. It melts perfectly and adds to the flavour in a way that makes the food taste 'fuller' but without being heavy or too noticeable. A lovely sugar alternative and made by one of my favourite healthy companies. Reviewer's Name: D BISALA
Biona Organic Agave Light Syrup - Mon 29th Apr 2013 A great substitute for sugar. This doesn't have too much of a flavour of its own, so it's good for high-quality tea and coffee, where you want the sweetness, but still want to have the full flavour of the drink. Reviewer's Name: Lauren
