A sugar specialty with the best properties is created from one of the most fascinating plants in the world: the agave was already valued in the oldest cultures in South America. It flowers only once (“plant of the century”). It stores a sweet, delicious juice in its mighty fleshy leaves.
In order to produce Lotao Maya Kiss, the juice is first obtained from the agave - up to one and a half liters are taken daily. The juice has a short shelf life and is therefore immediately heated and filtered. This process converts the polysaccharides contained in the juice into simple sugars. The result is a clear liquid reminiscent of honey. The syrup is then thickened, completely dried and ground into a powder. The result is a condiment with a unique shelf life and a pleasant texture.
Lotao Maya Kiss agave sugar is the perfect alternative for people who want to do without table sugar but still have a high sweetening power: agave sugar consists largely of fructose and glucose, with the proportion of fructose clearly predominating. Since the glycemic index (GI) of fructose is extremely low, consuming agave syrup has little effect on blood sugar levels. The glycemic load of agave nectar is generally among the lowest of any sweetener.
In contrast to agave syrup, Maya Kiss agave sweetness can be sprinkled, has a longer shelf life even after opening and is easy to use in recipes due to its dry nature. Because agave sweetener dissolves quickly, it is ideal for sweetening hot and cold drinks. Since Maya Kiss is tasteless, you can also refine mild dishes with agave sugar. The sweetness from the Mexican agave is also suitable for spreading on bread, for baking or generally for sweetening desserts.
