- Agave syrup:
Instead of adding table spoons or cubes of sugar to overcome the bitterness of coffee, try adding agave syrup. This ingredient contains high levels of fructose levels. So what is the logic behind using agave syrup instead of sugar? Well, the syrup is high in fructose, but has a low “glycemic index”.
Glycemic index is a numerical figure associated with a particular food, so as to describe the food’s effect on a person’s blood sugar level.
Hence, agave syrup is way better than regular sugar, since it effects the blood sugar on a lesser scale, and is comparatively sweeter.
