Vegan honey alternative launched

July 2nd, 2008

Two new syrups are being introduced by Geo Organics that can be used as an alternative to honey by vegans.

In addition, Organic Agave Syrups are suitable for use as an organic sugar and as the substance is 25 per cent sweeter, Geo Organics suggest that a smaller amount is used. It is also three times sweeter than honey.

The new product is available in two flavours: Geo Organics Agave Organic Dessert Syrup and Geo Organics Agave Organic Sweetening Syrup.

An easy to pour honey alternative, the dessert syrup is recommended for use in recipes and pancakes, as well as glazes and marinades, while the sweetening syrup could be used in hot drinks, cereals and cakes.

Both products have been certified organic by the Soil Association and are gluten free as well as being suitable for both vegans and vegetarians.

Already this week, a vegan pesto product – that is also certified organic – has been launched by Essential.
