bottles of agave nectar
Is agave nectar really nectar?


No, agave nectar is not nectar. Instead, it is a blend of simple sugars, mostly fructose, that is manufactured through chemical processes that break down the complex sugars found in the Agave plant. Because of its high fructose content, it is sweeter than table sugar (sucrose), but it also has more calories, so for the same sweetness, the two come out about the same.
