Agave tequilana from Mexico
Agave powder is made using the sweet nectar of blue agaves (known for their high sweetening power) that grow in the volcanic soil of southern Mexico. The 136 varieties of agave belong to the Agavaceae family named after these plants. They are comparable to cactuses and yuccas in terms of shape and natural habitat. Agave is a source of inulin, a carbohydrate from the fructan group. Purasana agave powder dissolves easily and can be used in many dishes. It has a pleasant feel in the mouth. It is sweeter than sugar, but has a low glycaemic index (GI 26).
