we f*cked up .. with AGAVE.. sorry guys but its official .. this delicious golden syrup aint no health food its highly processed and has a high percentage fructose sugars.. its up there with HIGH FRUCTOSE CORN SYRUP .. woops that processed sugar everyone is alway saying is killing us all and making our children hyper little c*nts …But seriously Fructose is the chain of sugar in fruit yes.. but it comes in minimal amounts in fruits .. coupled with fiber therefore is digested and released slowly and the bulk stops you from overeating .
BUTTT when you condense it into a sweet syrup of high amounts of fructose its not good AGAVE IS ACTUALLY HIGHER IN FRUCTOSE THAN HIGH FRUCTOSE CORN SYRUP with anywhere from 60-97 percent of it containing the fast acting sugars which cause weight gain , liver damage and inflammation .
Dr.Joseph Mercola recently wrote an article on the issue stating ” Most agave “nectar” or agave “syrup” is nothing more than a laboratory-generated super-condensed fructose syrup, devoid of virtually all nutrient value, and offering you metabolic misfortune in its place.” … oh god
so put the squeeze-y bottles down . step away from the syrupy devil.
