I used to be a huge fan of agave, but that was before doing any research into exactly what it is and how it differs from sugar. This is a great deal, but just be aware that agave has its down sides as a sweetener.

Agave is 90% fructose, which does have a lower glycemic index than standard sugar, but causes elevated ghrelin levels, which increase appetite. It is metabolized solely by the liver, so in more than small amounts, can stress liver function, and has been shown to contribute to non-alcoholic fatty liver disease. Fructose is also metabolized into uric acid, a predictor of cardiovascular disease.

That said, all things in moderation are fine, but just be aware that from a health standpoint, you are probably better off using organic cane sugar, palm sugar, honey, or maple syrup, all of which have a much more balanced ratio of glucose and fructose.

That's pretty slick, considering Costco has the same ones, but 2-pack 36 oz bottles at 10.99 plus tax.

Non-GMO project verified lmfao. There aren't any GMO agave on the market. Nice way to fool consumers I suppose

Just heat up the honey. If it's a glass bottle, just set in a pot of water and bring up the water temp. Stir and you're good to go.

Read this Dr. Oz post before you buy agave, similar to Walke2jd's comment.

http://blog.doctoroz.com/dr-oz-bl...were-wrong

"As always, the safety and health of all Americans is of the utmost importance to me. After learning about the risks high-fructose foods like agave may pose, I knew I had to speak up and alert you so that you can turn to healthier alternatives like honey. In the future, if you have to use agave, I urge you to use the smallest amount possible."

I bought some at Costco on sale thinking it was a better alternative. Then once I did research I realized it could do more harm than good.

Back to honey!

Good post.
