The current darling of the organic foodies is Agave Nectar. The supposedly natural sweetener is said to be better that HFCS or cane/beet sugar. Except ... it is not natural at all. It also is not nectar. The root of the agave plant, the same thing that makes your tequila, if full of starch -- carbs -- it is the processed in a way that is similar to the production of HFCS resulting in a man-made product with up to 90% fructose, the evil sugar implicated in HFCS. Talk about high fructose!
