Usage of agave syrup:
Jams / fruit spreads / jellies:
Agave syrup has the characteristic that it supports but does not cover up the taste of fruit preparations, as is the case with other sweetening agents.
Milk and milk products / ice cream / desserts:
Agave syrup is very suitable as an ingredient in milk or milk products, since the final product has a well-rounded, full, aromatic taste that is clearly noticeable.
Fine baked goods / cakes / biscuits:
Agave syrup helps keep baked goods fresh and browns better than sugar. Especially suitable for sponges, Madeira cake batter and yeast dough.
The nutritional importance of agave syrup:
The fructose content of agave syrup is extremely high. As a mono saccaride, the human body can utilise it directly and convert it quickly into energy for the brain, nerves and the muscles. Agave syrup still contains a lot of mineral substances and trace elements such as calcium, potassium, magnesium and iron. Even though agave syrup has fewer calories that sugar, it is the ideal sweetner for everyone wanting healthy nutrition.
