Difference Between Light Agave Syrup and Amber Agave Syrup

Light Agave Syrup vs Amber Agave Syrup

If you want to apply sweeteners on your meals, but you’ve already grown tired of the commercially produced sweeteners, such as, honey, maple syrup, strawberry syrup, and others that claim to be all-natural but really are not, you should try agave syrup. Agave is a sweetener that is native from Mexico. The syrup is somewhat sweeter than honey but is more refined and less gloppy. This sweetener is ideal for all vegetarians who also want to eat their foods raw and natural. It’s sweeter than honey and sugar but contains low calories compared to both. That is why many health-conscious but sweet tooth individuals are becoming obsessed with the agave syrup. The syrup comes from the Blue Agave or the Agave tequiliana plant. The juice is extracted from the heart of the agave plant and filtered then heated to create simple sugars. The filtered and heated juice is finally concentrated to a slightly thinner and super-sweet liquid from light to amber colored depending on the intensity of the processing.

Agave sweetener is marketed in light, amber, and raw varieties. Nevertheless, the most popular and bestsellers are the amber and the light agave. The two are considered different not only because of its colors but also because of its taste. Both come from the same blue agave plant but were processed differently, hence the difference in colors and taste. It is because of the salts and minerals that were filtered out to produce a consistent product. To know more, here are some of the characteristics of both the light agave syrup and amber agave syrup that differs them from each other.

The light agave syrup is processed with less heat but thorough filtering. All the minerals, colors, and flavors are all extracted. It has a mild, neutral flavor that is used on exquisite- tasting foods and drinks because it does not alter the original flavor; it actually brings out the flavor and enriches it. That is in contrast with honey and other sugar products that actually alter the flavors of the food and drinks. The light agave syrup is ideal for coffee, tea, fruit smoothies, ice cream, cake, and other baked products. It can even be used on vegetable salads.

The amber agave syrup, to begin with, is also a delicate syrup but with a hint of the vanilla scent and the taste of maple syrup. It contains a mild caramel flavor. This agave variety is processed less compared to that of the light agave. All of its minerals, colors, and flavors are retained. The amber agave syrup has the lowest glycemic index even when compared to other agave syrups. This means that the amber agave is metabolized more slowly inside the human body’s bloodstream compared to other sweeteners. This variety of agave is ideal for people with hypoglycemia or diabetes or even for anyone who wants to maintain a low blood sugar level. Chefs and gourmets often prefer using the amber agave syrup and mix it with whatever they’re cooking because it just brings out the soft flavor to any dish and drinks. This agave variety is perfect with tea, pancakes, cereals, waffles, protein drinks, and even on barbecue and marinated sauces. It can even be used in spaghetti and meat glazes.
