There is a lot of evidence and article hitting the Internet at the moment explaining that fructose is not good for our health but I was given some and wanted to try it out. The Agave I have has been purchased from Raw Pleasure and they get it from Loving Earth. It is a superior Agave to most of the commercial agaves now available in health food stores, wholefood shops and supermarkets these days. It has been processed below 40 degree's C by a special process, here is the link to the Loving Earth information on the product explaining how it is processed, it's low GI and also a link regarding fructose.
That being said, we do follow a low fructose diet as much as we can so once the Agave is used up I will continue with lower fructose alternatives such as the coconut sugar and or nectar which is packed with magnesium, potassium and iron, minerals that stabilise energy levels. It is also high in the B vitamin Inositol which is widely used as a mood enhancer.You could try honey or maple syrup but I find that they seem to take over, it would be nice if you wanted a honey chocolate but I really wanted to try to stay true to the real chocolate flavour with these.
