This sticky, sweet nectar of the Agave plant is a fantastic way to experiment with different flavors in your meads and beers. It has a malty aroma with a hint of sweetness to it. One of the great things about Agave Extract is that it won't crystalize like honey will, so it maintains a smooth, liquid-like consistency. Notes of molasses come out when tasting it. The extract is light in color, and in addition to being fermented, many people use Agave extract as a sweetener in foods. And due to its low glycemic index, it is a great alternative to sugar for diabetics.
