More Agave debate!

HOLY. MOLY.
Ok, I was totally wrong about Madhava Agave, its G.I. is 46!!!!
From now on, the only brand I am using is Blue Agave Nectar. Why? Read this LINK. It's the only brand that has a true low G.I. I mean, the other stuff is still better than sugar or honey! But it's truly not low G.I. So, make your own decisions.
Also know that if you eat agave nectar after eating high g.i. foods, it is a higher g.i. count because then it acts like sugar... (um, weird!).
In other news, I haven't been posting that much lately because I have been very busy singing and getting into Bikram Yoga! It's fantastic! Totally recommend.

A reprint of Sugars and their G.I. counts:

Sugar 60 - 65

Pure Maple syrup 54

Honey 58

Coconut Palm Sugar 35

Agave Nectar 27- 46 or higher, depending on the brand!

Erythritol 0

Stevia 0


PS I finally got a new camera so new pictures will be beeeaaautiful!!!

I love to hear from you! Please let me know how you changed a recipe, and how it came out. I don't do nutritional information anymore, sorry! I just provide the *free* recipes. I try to reply to comments but don't have much time these days. I hope to revamp this site eventually.... but for now I am still a working Mom and this is my hobby.
*If you would like to post the carb counts by using an online carb calculator, please go ahead* I don't provide them anymore, it's a miracle if I even get a post up these days! Thanks!
