>Another product that I’ve become aware of since joining the low GI bandwagon is agave nectar (or syrup).
Apparently, its GI is only about 11-19, which is very, very low.
The only thing is that it’s usually imported from the Americas (mostly Mexico), and isn’t widely available on the shelf in Australia.
We’ve been scoping various natural/organic foodstores and checking out online sites, too. It’s here. It’s just not easy to find.
But, hey, upside of all this research is that we’ve discovered quite a few organic supermarkets/stores near where we live, which is a bonus.
By the time I order and receive any of this product, though, I probably won’t need it anymore (fingers crossed, my gestational diabetes will take a hike after Sprog 2 joins us).
For your info:
Caveat: I haven’t actually tried the stuff, so can’t vouch for its amazingness or otherwise in the taste stakes!
