Xagave: Unique Natural Low-Glycemic Sweetener

Updated on August 28, 2010

Agave Plant

All Natural Sugar Substitute

Are you looking for a way to reduce your sugar consumption without adding potentially dangerous artificial sweeteners to your diet? If so, Xagave just might be what you are looking for.

About Xagave Brand Sweetener

Agave nectar has gained popularity as a sugar alternative, and there are a number of different brands of commercially available agave nectar. Most of the agave nectar products are made from blue agave only. The Xagave brand, however, is different. Xagave is a unique, all-natural, low-Glycemic sweetener that features a combination of both blue and white agave.

White agave is an outstanding source of calcium and blue agave is a great source of Inulin, which is a water soluble fiber that offers many weight management and health benefits. As with other types of dietary fiber, consuming Inulin results in a filling effect. Additionally, Inulin is said to help boost the immune system, moderate blood sugar levels, improve digestive health, and increase both calcium absorption and bone density levels.

Xagave has a Glycemic index of between 30 and 35, making it an excellent natural sweetening agent for individuals who are trying to lose weight or maintain a healthy weight by following a low Glycemic diet. It's also a good sweetener choice for individuals who are following diabetic diet.

Unlike other natural sugar replacements, like palm sugar, Stevia, and Lo Han, Xagave's flavor does not vary from batch to batch and is quite simple to use. With Xagave, you can expect consistent levels of sweetness every time you use it. That's just one of the reasons this product is such an excellent choice for home cooks who want to cut down on using sugar and artificial sweeteners.

Cooking with Xagave

Xagave can be used in all types of recipes, from sweet and delicious barbecue sauces to delicious baked goods and pies. You can learn how to cook with Xagave by reading Delicious Meets Nutritious, a great Xagave-specific cookbook written by Chef Stephen Richards, who is the President and CEO of Xagave.

Delicious Meets Nutritious is the best selling agave nectar cookbook in the U.S. and features instructions for preparing a number of great recipes using Xagave. A few of the delicious dishes included in this book are: Blueberry Lemon Bundt Cake, Lemon Meringue Pie, Maple Glazed Holiday Ham, Old Fashioned Buttermilk Syrup, and many others.

When you cook with Xagave, you'll be able to completely replace sugar and enjoy delicious foods that have significantly fewer calories than similar dishes prepared with sugar and artificial sugar replacements that still add empty calories to your food.

    I've never heard of this. I have to limit sugar intake so I will definitely look into this. Thank you for sharing it.
