Is Agave Nectar good for you - not affecting insulin? Or just like High Fructose Corn Syrup? There was an article that circulated on the web last November that really condemned it. But then I came across this link on Deb Schiff's Altered Plates blog where Madhava's Craig Gerbore talks about their brand of agave nectar. As a result, I am only using the Madhava brand and I am completely assured it will not raise my insulin. I have linked to it in the past but thought everyone should read it.
It's from another blog, and I found it through Elana's Pantry Blog - which totally rocks, you must check it out!! She just released a FABULOUS Almond Flour Gluten Free Low G.I. cookbook that is gorgeous and amazing!!!
