AGAVE NECTAR (Skinny Bitch; from page 30):
"...We're simply suggesting that you substitute natural, healthier alternatives for refined sugar. At the top of the list is agave nectar
or syrup. This high-nutrient sweetener can actually be beneficial to your health. It doesn't contain any processing chemicals, and the raw version (completely unprocessed) contains vitamins and minerals. Because it absorbs slowly into the bloodstream, agave nectar
doesn't have a significant impact on blood-sugar levels. It can be sued in place of sugar in any product or receipe."
