1 tbspAgave nectar

  4. Divide sparkling bellini into 6 glasses, preferably flute glasses.​


  • ​Blue agave nectar has a glycemic index of 15-19 (low GI). Compared to honey (GI of 60-61) and table sugar (sucrose, GI of 65-69), agave appears to be a better choice for keeping blood sugar from spiking.
  • This low blood sugar response of agave is due to the type of sugar it contains. It consists of 60-90% fructose, which causes less of a blood sugar peak than glucose. Fructose is healthy in fruits (an apple is about 7% fructose) but high amounts have been linked to insulin resistance and higher triglycerides.
  • Remember, it’s the overall diet that counts, not individual foods. A bit of agave, honey or maple syrup can all be part of a healthy diet.
