Information on Agave Syrup.
Monday, October 05, 2015
I had posted below a blog on Weight Loss Tips but I need to amend something about what I found out is no longer viewed as a good alternative substitute for using sugar. Here's part of a blog written by Dr. Oz:
"We used to think that because agave has a low-glycemic index and doesn’t spike your blood sugar like regular sugar does, it would be a good alternative for diabetics. But it turns out that although agave doesn’t contain a lot of glucose, it contains more fructose than any other common sweetener, including high-fructose corn syrup. Initially, we thought moderate amounts of fructose weren’t unhealthy, but now we know better."
Dr. Oz also mentioned it to remove it as a staple or use very little of it. He recommended raw honey.
Ok, ok, just one more thing I need to use less of.
