Agave nectar has had one heck of a marketing campaign behind it, but for all the hype it really is not that good for you. It is highly processed. It is mostly Fructose (which is processed by the liver, and is directly stored as fat - our body does not use fructose for energy, it uses glucose). Really it is not that different from High Fructose Corn Syrup. If you are looking to switch to a healthier sweetener, I recommend Stevia. I'm not a dietitian, this is just from research that I've done as I've tried to healthify our diet.
