I was able to resolve my complaint with Amazon but I want other shoppers to be aware that his is smaller than you might expect. I estimate that each bottle is 24oz by volume. Still a pretty good deal but not the steal I was hoping for!
10 grams of sugar has a GI of about 56.666
10 grams of agave has a GI of about 10-19
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 ›

expensive buying agave on amazon.
however, this brand was okay. I did not like the taste of this agave brand. Tasted like oaky corn syrup.
1.) Agave has been delisted and banned by the Glycemic Research Institute of Washington DC because serious side effects were observed in clinical trials.
