Agave Nectar Vs Honey Vs Syrup

Recommended Posts

Hey all. Well I just did a bunch of reading on Agave Nectar. I just bought a huge bottle of it after hearing that is an awesome natural sweetner, then I start reading about how it wreaks havoc on acne. That is not only is very high in fructose, but spikes insulin levels through the roof. I want something to put on my homemade coconut pancakes, anyone have advice?

hmmm this is a good question! I don't use sugar, and instead use both agave and honey regularly. I've also tried stevia. I didn't notice any drastic difference in my skin depending on which one I used, but maybe I just wasn't paying enough attention. I think it totally depends on the person but there's been quite a bit of research done on each so I guess reading up first cant hurt.

MM.. I know a lot of people really dislike agave. I never read into it, but there is also stevia/palm sugar. There is yacon, not sure how healthy it is though. Maybe you could craft you're own using stuff like cacao/vanilla extracts/and a good base. Not sure :(
