SUPER SWEET AGAVE SYRUPS LAUNCHED BY GEO ORGANICS Friday 30 May 2008 PDF Print Geo Organics is introducing two natural, organic Agave Syrups that offer health-conscious consumers a botanically-derived, organic alternative to sugar and vegans an alternative to honey. Being 25% sweeter than sugar, less is needed in recipes. And it’s a perfect addition to cold drinks – such as iced tea or cocktails – as it dissolves readily in cold water where sugar and honey are less successful when used this way. Prepared from the pure sap of the renowned Blue Agave (pronounced “ar-gar-vay”), a succulent plant native to Mexico, Geo Organics’ Agave Syrups are rich in fructose, rather than sucrose, and are absorbed more steadily into the bloodstream than refined sugar. Thus they have a lower GI (Glycemic Index) and GL (Glycemic Load) rating than many other natural sweeteners. So you are less likely to experience the stressful energy spikes – and crashes – often associated with the consumption of sucrose-loaded products, such as table sugar. There are two Geo Organics Agave Syrups to choose from. Each comes in a shapely glass bottle and costs around £2.79 for 320g. Geo Organics Agave Organic Dessert Syrup: This unfiltered syrup retains many minerals and has a complex flavour with a pleasing hint of vanilla. It isn’t as sticky as honey or maple syrup, so it’s easier to pour, and can be used in much the same way … try it on pancakes, in recipes (it has a natural affinity with chocolate!) and in glazes, marinades and salad dressings. Geo Organics Agave Organic Sweetening Syrup: This is gently filtered to give a lighter appearance and flavour. Use whenever you would normally reach for table sugar, such as to sweeten cereals, hot and cold drinks, cakes and fruit puddings. Remember, Geo Organics’ Agave Syrup is a powerful sweetener - it’s about three times sweeter than honey and 25% sweeter than sugar so aim to cut by 2/3 the amount of sweetener you usually use to achieve the same flavour enhancement. Geo Organics’ Agave Syrups are Soil Association accredited, gluten-free and suitable for vegetarians and vegans. They are free from artificial and genetically modified ingredients. Geo Organics Agave Syrups are available at good health food stores and many online stockists: find your local stockist at www.seriouslyorganic.co.uk For more information, samples or images contact: Katherine Selby, PR Workshop, 0208 657 4422, Katherine@prworkshop.co.uk This press release was distributed by ResponseSource Press Release Wire on behalf of PR Workshop in the following categories: Food & Drink, for more information visit http://pressreleasewire.responsesource.com/about.
