Inevitably, the subject of agave comes up whenever I lecture or take on a new client.
Generally, these health-minded people have heard wonderful things about agave, especially that it’s low on the glycemic index.
You, too, as a health-minded person — I assume you are since you’re reading this blog — may want to know:
- Is agave safe?
- Can I use agave as a sugar substitute?
For those of you who are fans of agave, my short answer is this: I don’t recommend it.
