While there are a number of natural sweeteners available to consumers, 'Maguey Sweet Sap' uses the product of the maguey plant as a natural kind of sweetening agent. The syrup has long been a staple for Mexican indigenous groups for centuries due to its nutritional properties and sweet flavor profile. Now 'Villa de Patos' is commercially producing the maguey syrup, so that consumers in the US can enjoy the unique natural sweetener as well.
The sweet Mexican syrup is made by concentrating the sap from the maguey plant at low temperatures in order to preserve the natural sugar profile. A vacuum evaporator system is then used to extract the product and to ensure that the nutritional content remains intact. The result is an unrefined and unprocessed natural sweetener. With its high nutritional content and subtly sweet flavor, Maguey Sweet Sap is perfect for using in baked goods, beverages and marinades.
