I have never tried agave nectar before and was very excited to! I got sent this bottle to sample from Xagave agave nectar.  I was pleasantly surprised! I liked it a lot and added a little to my oatmeal.  It was sweeter than sugar so you did not need a lot.  I have heard a lot of things about agave nectar so was very excited to try it out. 

Here is something interesting that the company had to say: "Xagave is a low-glycemic index food (approximately 30) that will save you 25% to 40% in calories without the harmful effects of sugar and artificial sweeteners. Sugar is a high glycemic food that has no nutritional value. Honey has as high a glycemic index as sugar. Unlike sugar, Xagave contains natural enzymes, vitamins, minerals, including calcium and iron, and a nutritious fiber, Inulin, that studies have shown provides a number of health benefits."

Very cool! Thanks for the new sweetener to try!
