Celebrity and Michelin-starred chef Mark Sargeant embraces The Groovy Food Company's Agave Nectar in his tantalizing sweet and savoury recipes.
The organic alternative to sugar is this year's kitchen 'must have' thanks to its delicious taste, versatility and low GI (Glycemic Index) content.
The Groovy Food Company Agave Nectar is 100% natural, unrefined and free from any artificial nasties.
Lovingly extracted from the Blue Agave plant in Mexico and lower in calories than sugar, The Groovy Food Company Agave Nectar lends it's tempting, cane-sugar taste to a variety of baking recipes, as well as marinades and dressings.
Its low freezing temperature also makes it a perfect alternative for sweetening homemade ice creams, yoghurts and chilled desserts.
I'm always looking to improve my food and introduce people to great new ingredients. The Groovy Food Company's Agave Nectar is the best substitute for processed sugar I've found - it tastes delicious, is easy to cook with and is slow release, which means it won't send your blood sugar levels through the roof. Crucially - and unlike other so-called natural sweeteners - the flavour doesn't taint or overpower other ingredients.
This means I can use it in a wider range of dishes, from sweet to savoury. Both are ideal to have in the kitchen as they have a long, stable shelf life and won't solidify. They pour quickly even when cold and dissolve easily in both hot and cold recipes; for a foodie with an eye on nutrition, they''re unbeatable.Mark Sargeant
