I have found it can be expensive to purchage agave nectar at grocery or health food stores and have found Amazon the best source to stock up at a great price and have yet to have a bottle go bad or change before I've used it.
I also recommend trying the amber agave nectar and use it as a syrup replacement for my pancakes.
This is almost 100% fructose.
Personally, I spent about two months with very bad, mysterious abdominal pain that seemed to be everywhere. After several weeks of doctor visits, discussions about IBS, and an abdominal ultrasound that came up normal, I started thinking about what was different in my diet: I had been using agave nectar in my tea several times a day. After throwing out the agave nectar and looking online for a list of lower fructose food, I changed my diet, a little.
The pain went away in a matter of days, and hasn't returned.
If you're using agave nectar and you have suddenly started having digestive issues, try getting rid of the agave nectar. For some people, this is really bad stuff.
Note to gluten-intolerant folks: fructose malabsorption can go along with being gluten sensitive or intolerant. If you're wondering why you're still sick if you're following a gluten-free diet, this may be the culprit.
Agave syrup (nectar) is basically high-fructose corn syrup masquerading as a health food.
Sorry. Don't kill the messenger.
It's easy to understand how agave syrup got its great reputation. Even the word "Agave" has a fine pedigree, coming from the Greek word for noble. The blue agave species- considered the best for the making agave nectar -- flourishes in rich volcanic soil. (It's also the only variety permitted to be used for the making of tequila.) And extracts from the agave plant have been shown to have anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties.
Unfortunately there's zero evidence that any of those compounds are present in the commercially made syrup.
Agave nectar is an amber-colored liquid that pours more easily than honey and is considerably sweeter than sugar. The health-food crowd loves it because it is gluten-free and suitable for vegan diets, and, most especially, because it's low-glycemic (we'll get to that in a moment). Largely because of its very low glycemic impact, agave nectar is marketed as "diabetic friendly". What's not to like?
As it turns out, quite a lot.
Agave nectar has a low-glycemic index for one reason only: it's largely made of fructose, which although it has a low-glycemic index, is probably the single most damaging form of sugar when used as a sweetener. With the exception of pure liquid fructose, agave nectar has the highest fructose content of any commercial sweetener.
All sugar -- from table sugar to HFCS (high-fructose corn syrup) to honey -- contains some mixture of fructose and glucose. Table sugar is 50/50, HFCS is 55/45. Agave nectar is a whopping 90 percent fructose, almost -- but not quite -- twice as high as HFCS.Read more ›

We don't use sugar except for agave and this is a great brand.Published 16 days ago by Martha Binford
Still a HFCS product. Used sparingly it is better than most sweeteners. Be careful with Agave in general. Read morePublished 25 days ago by Victor Hebert
I like it but then I soon realized I like unsweetened tea better. I have this stuff away and the recipients loved it.Published 1 month ago by Chris Cook
This is my favorite tasting agave nectar, and the price is competitive. I only use raw. Other sugars make me sick, but raw agave nectar doesn't for some reason. Read morePublished 1 month ago by Krista
