Blue Agave Liquid Inulin
This Sweetener is a Natural Sugar
Natural sugars are found naturally in foods such as fruit (fructose) and milk (lactose) and some vegetables. The blue agave plant grows in Mexico. Blue agave powder is made by cutting the leaves off the plant. The syrup is then extracted from the core of the agave.
It’s a Fructo-oligosaccharides
Fructo-oligosaccharides (FOS) are composed of short fructose chains. Blue agave powder is 100% fructo-oligosaccharides (FOS), inulin. This is a natural prebiotic.
Inside and Out
Blue agave powder has a has a neutral taste. Its FOS is an indigestible sugar. They go to your large intestine, where they are fermented by the good bacteria in your gut. This process produces short-chain fatty acids that keep the lining of your gut healthy. Since FOS is not digested, it doesn’t cause a spike in blood sugar.
Put it to Good Use
Blue agave powder is about 130% as sweet as table sugar. You may need to reduce the amount sweetener called for in recipes. It dissolves well in any hot or cold drinks and it can be very easily used in baking recipes. For each cup of white sugar, use 2/3 of a cup of agave and reduce other liquids by 1/4 to 1/3 cup. For each cup of brown sugar in a recipe, use 2/3 of a cup of agave and don’t reduce other liquids. Blue agave liquid may cause baked items to brown more quickly, so reduce oven temperatures by 25°F and increase the baking time slightly.
