Agave is a sweetner that comes from the agave americana and tequiliana plants. It has a low glycenic index. With any of these sweetners you can eat too much and have the same effect as sugar in the body. Moderation is the key to everything. But I've found that I don't crave it as much. I can eat one cookie and feel edified. Where as before I would eat the entire plate of cookies and still want more.
You can find this product in health food stores, costco, walmart, and most super markets. - Melissa
