USDA ORGANIC AND ESTATE GROWN Soviia Agave has built up a reputation with our customers as the most trusted name in agave by only growing the USDA organic, Non-GMO Project Verified, estate-grown blue weber agave. We never use harmful components that would harm the ecosystem and end up in your sweetener. Grown in Guadalajara, our lava-rich soil produces a higher purity agave, naturally. Soviia syrups and nectars are also hand harvested (no machinery) which means more jobs for indigenous workers..MANY USES Soviia is the best choice sweetener for coffee, tea, smoothies, and any drink (hot or cold) that needs sweetener. It has been a longtime staple in cocktails like margaritas, caipirinhas and daiquiris. Recently its use in baking has skyrocketed as a healthier (and vegan) alternative to honey and corn syrup, but it is also an excellent choice for wine and beer making due to its faster and more effective fermentation rates..LOW GLYCEMIC Agave nectar has a very low glycemic index (GI of 15 compared to table sugar's 65), because it has very little glucose, and therefore doesn't spike blood sugar levels as much. One tablespoon of agave contains about the same amount of fructose as a large apple and is twice as sweet as sugar, so you can use less for the same sweetness..SUSTAINABLE For every blue agave plant that we harvest, Soviia plants two more in its place! Our production facility is solar-powered and reuses water and agave fiber to lower our carbon footprint. At Soviia Agave , we believe in being environmentally conscious to protect the earth for future generations..CHARITABLE Soviia Agave has committed itself to donate 5% of net income to established global charities supporting orphans. We call it our “One Sweet Cause” initiative. These organizations give forgotten children the gift of shelter, care, and food they would otherwise not receive. We feel that this is a crucial reminder of how blessed we are and how important it is to pay it forward.
