Product Story & background
The Maya gold crew noticed that agave syrup blends incredibly with all flavors, in particular the classics and red fruits. The classic flavours are “vanilla, chocolate, caramel and maple” and the red fruits being “raspberry and blackberry”. So we came up with a agave syrup maple flavor and agave syrup raspberry flavor for retail.
To make maple agave syrup, we mix blue agave syrup with dark & raw agave syrup to obtain the ideal color. We then add an organic ethanol based maple aroma concentrate to the syrup. Our goal is to mimic the incredible taste of maple syrup while maintaining the low glycemic index of agave. We also see a benefit in a maple syrup flavored agave syrup which unlike maple does not have to be refrigerated after opening. The price of maple flavored agave syrup is also half of pure Canadian maple syrup.
To make raspberry agave syrup it is a little more tricky. We take the lightest agave syrup possible and we add organic raspberry juice concentrate which comes frozen at 63 brix non cloudy, we then add organic raspberry aroma from ethanol base. The result is an boom!! Of raspberry flavor unmatched by any raspberry product out there.
Agave Syrup is a natural and organic fructose sweetener extracted from the Salmeana or Blue Weber agave plant. The plant grows in special plantations and fields in Jalisco, Mexico and takes up to 7 years to fully grow. The plant can be either used to produce Agave syrup, Agave Powder, Agave Inulin or Tequila.
Our flavoured organic agave syrups are something else. We flavour our agave syrup with natural and organic fruit juice concentrates and aromas.
Agave syrup is an excellent sweetener to be used in production. It is highly soluble at low temperatures (unlike honey) and tastes wonderful in recipes with fruits.
Agave Syrup is 1.4 times sweeter than refined sugar and therefore has nearly half the amount of carbohydrates spoon-for-spoon as refined sugar. It also has a low Glycemic Index (of 22) which means the carbohydrates are gradually released and then processed by the body, eliminating energy spikes.
