Wildly Organic Agave is not a purified substance, such as high fructose corn syrup or white sugar. Our agave is non-GMO and it is certified organic.

Agave Nectar is a sweet concentrated syrup made from the Agave plant which thrives in the central semi-arid desert of Mexico. To produce this syrup, first the "pina" or "pineapple-like center" is soaked in purified water. Then natural enzymes, already present in the "pina," are allowed to break down the inulin (complex carbohydrates) into monosaccharides (simple sugars). These sugars are predominantly composed of fructose and glucose.

Wildly Organic Certified Organic Agave Nectar is not heated during processing and it is considered raw. The natural fermentation of the inulin water, because the temperature is kept low, takes 4 to 5 days. The concentration of the nectar occurs solely by the use of a vacuum to remove excess moisture after fermentation. Once a specific concentration of sweetness is reached, the syrup becomes shelf-stable at room temperature and does not require refrigeration or any special storage.

Our Agave Nectar is dark in color because it has the least amount of processing of any Agave product. Lighter Agave Syrups can be produced by faster processing (which requires temperatures of 160 degrees or more) and heavy filtering. Raw agave, sold by other suppliers, if light in color has been filtered many, many times. Repeated filtering removes flavor and color.

When we visited the manufacturing plant in Mexico we were offered 5 different shades of agave to choose from. Each sample had a slightly different taste with the strongest flavors coming from the darkest agave. The difference in the shades came solely from the number of times the agave was filtered and the fineness of those filters. Wildly Organic has chosen to purchase only the agave which sees the lowest temperatures and the least amount of filtering. That is why our agave is darker than others.

Before visiting the plant ourselves, this type of information was unknown to us. However, by being there we were able to monitor the process, ask numerous questions, and check quality control records, process logs, and look over the equipment. We are proud to tell you that our agave is coming from a new, state-of-the-art plant with very tight quality control. We can give you our personal guarantee that our agave is raw and not heavily filtered or processed with added enzymes, chemicals or other materials. It is:

  • Completely natural - no chemicals or enzymes are added during processing, only natural fermentation and simple filtration.
  • Completely raw - no heat is used during processing.
  • Great for baking and cooking as well as raw dishes and has been used this way for thousands of years by the Mexican people.
  • Does not contain any chemicals, toxins, or preservatives.
  • 75% sweeter than sugar: fructose is 42 percent sweeter to the human brain than granulated sugar, less is needed to achieve the same level of sweetness

Great for beverages

It is not heavy, so easier to mix in beverages. It provides the sweetness I want without another flavor.
