About Loving Earth Raw Organic Agave Syrup Dark
This Agave is harvested from the Wild Maguey species by the Aztecs in the Ixmiquilpan region of Mexico, where it is known as “El Árbol de Las Maravillas” (the tree of miracles) due to its many uses. The Wild Maguey is central to their culture - they've been harvesting it there for thousands of years. The cultivation and harvesting of Agave in this region contributes greatly to the local economy, preventing the emigration of local men to the U.S. in order to support their families.
The unfiltered Dark Agave has more minerals than the light filtered version, in addition to a richer, wilder flavour.
Our Agave is processed at below 40ºC using a vacuum evaporator and certified organic vegan enzyme as a catalyst to concentrate the natural sugars into a stable form. It's minimally processed and comes from long-chained fructans, called inulin (that’s inulin, not insulin – a common mistake!). This is why it’s diabetic friendly.
