Hi, do you know where I can buy RAW agave nectar? My healthfood stores in the area only carry the non-raw kind.

You can get it at Alissa's site: www.alissacohen.com :)

You could also try requesting it. Whole Foods (here atleast.. but I live near the Whole Foods headquarters in Boulder, CO) carries Raw Agave.

I was told that all agave, whether it says raw or not, is not raw :/ It's sorta like the cashew thing...

I found this link (scroll down, near the bottom it talks about Agave)
I've never heard of Raw agave actually not being raw. Why would they claim it is raw? :confused:

Alissa sells raw agave on her website, and it is what she uses in her home.
Here is the link and information on it being raw:
This is a truly raw Agave, warmed only by the sun. Some agaves are cooked at 149-180 degrees Fahrenheit while others use immature plants.
This natural unprocessed product is 100% Pure, Raw Food, Certified Organic Raw Agave Nectar from mature plants.
What is Agave nectar?
Agave Nectar is an exciting new sweetener naturally extracted from the Americana Agave (a cactus-like plant native to Mexico.) it dissolves easily and is a great tasting sweetener that can replace honey, dates, maple syrup and other sweeteners. It has a very natural, light taste and is milder in taste then honey or maple syrup or other sweeteners that ca have an overpowering taste in many recipes.
Because of the low glycemic index, agave nectar is absorbed slowly into the bloodstream. This means that it does not significantly raise blood sugar levels therefore, you do not get the highs and lows associated with sugar intake. Because of the low glycemic index It is also acceptable for people with diabetes and hyperglycemia.
It also provides vitamins and minerals not found in processed sweeteners.
