Agave nectar sweetener?!


Gold Member
Has anyone seen/used this stuff? It's an all natural thing (looks like honey) I spotted it in sainsburys yesterday and I was interested in buying it. The carbs were really low and I tried to compare it to the Splenda but my brain wouldn't work it out?!? I had an mithering 8 year old with me and felt faint (big mistake going out of the house!) so I just grabbed my sweetener and left.

Anyway, blabbering on now!

I bought some liquid sweetner from Swedish Connections where I buy the preema flavourings from. You only need 2 drops as a teaspoon. Costs £1.99 for about 30ml but well worth it.

I've not found that the sweetner disolves in water for a syrup, it just makes it sweet water LOL.
