About Agave nectar

Agave nectar (also called agave syrup) is a sweetener commercially produced in South Africa and Mexico from several species of agave, including Agave tequilana (blue agave) and (Agave salmiana). Agave nectar is sweeter than honey. It also tends to be less thick and flow somewhat more freely than honey. The majority of agave nectar around the world comes from Mexico and South Africa. To produce agave nectar from the Agave Americana and tequiliana plants, the leaves are cut off the plant after it has aged 7 to 14 years.
