Have you ever used Organic Blue Agave Sweetener before?

Please Rate Article: 
If not, I suggest you do. This Organic Blue Agave sweetener is delicious. Oh my goodness, this is a liquid sweetener and if you are a coffee drinker, this is the best sweetener to use because it blends well with hot and cold coffee. These days, there are so many artificial sweeteners, that I strongly suggest you do not use. Instead, use this Organic Blue Agave sweetener as it is a better alternative to white sugar and alternative sweeteners. Don't  get me wrong, sometimes you need white sugar for baking purposes, but when it come to adding a sweetener to coffee, tea or homemade lemonade, this Organic Blue Agave sweetener is the only product to use. Now, I just started using this Organic Blue Agave Sweetener two weeks ago and I do not see myself using anything else.

When it comes to sweeteners, I am sure you already know my stance of artificial sweeteners. If you are not aware of what artificial sweeteners are made from, let me tell you.  Artificial sweeteners, also known as, Aspartame, is also known as a Sweet Poison. This sounds like an oxymoron, right? Well, it is true. This is one sweetener you and your family do not want to use. When grocery shopping, there are a lot of sweeteners on the store shelves, right? Well, here are a list of these sweeteners, that go by different names, but are in fact ONE element (Aspartame).

This is the list of sweet poisons you will find on your store shelves:

  • Aspartame (yes, Aspartame is actually a boxed sweetener on your store shelf)
  • Equal
  • NutraSweet 
  • E951
  • Spoonful
  • et al
This is an article I wrote on Gather.com in 2008! Yeah 2008 is when I found out what Aspartame was and how it was affecting my health. So, I am  not new to this whole healthy sugar sweetener you know. I want to wake up my family and friends to see that their current sweetener (poison-if this is what is being used) is not good for your health.

Here are the ingredients of Organic Blue Agave:

  • Organic Amber Nectar
  • A Low Glycemic Organic Sweetener
Organic Blue Agave is also:
  • Gluten Free
  • USDA Organic
  • Certified Organic by Quality Assurance International
  • Vegan
Well, there you go. These are reasons to use Organic Blue Agave instead of white sugar and artificial sweeteners. 
Oh, one more thing, did you know white sugar comes from sugar cane and sugar beets? I am sure you do, but did you know beet sugar is being grown as a GMO crop? GMO, what is GMO you might be asking. Well the acronym for GMO means: Genetically Modified Organism, Genetically Engineered Organism, Genetically Altered  Organism and Genetically Manipulated Organism . Is this something you want in your body? If it can be avoided, please avoid eating and drinking anything grown from a GMO crop. 
How do I know the food is GMO? Good question. If you live in California (like I do), you had the chance to vote YES on 37 in November. The Yes on 37 meant YES label GMO fruits and vegetables. Sadly, this proposition did not pass because Monsanto and others like them defeated the grassroots effort to label GMO foods. If our foods were labeled "Non-GMO", we would have a choice to eat or not to eat GMO foods. Now, Monsanto, who makes GMO seeds, is immune from any lawsuit or whatever is thrown their way.

It will be a miracle if another state can get their Non-GMO labels on their fruits and vegetables.

To your health!
