Agave is mostly comprised of a fructose sugar called inulin, a natural plant sweetener that has been reported to have an extremely low impact on blood sugar and cholesterol levels.
Fructose, like glucose is a single-molecule sugar called a monosaccharide. While glucose and fructose are both derived from fruits, the human body more readily utilizes glucose rather than fructose to stabilize the Central Nervous System.
Unlike glucose, which is often referred to as the sugar of the blood, when fructose is in the blood, it is converted to lactic acid.
Fructose is also more difficult for the body to process and use as an energy source.
