Product Highlights... (producto destacado)
 
 
 

Is made with 100% blue agave. It has a fantastic rich taste and is a great natural substitute for sugar and other sweeteners. Made from the same plant that is used for making tequilas, agave syrup has great nutritional benefits & a low GI Index. Some of the benefits includes
•Low on the Glycemic Index - When it comes to comparing agave nectar and sugar, agave syrups are much lower on the glycemic index, which measures how the sugars in a food or drink interacts with blood sugars. Those at risk for diabetes may want to swap out sugar for agave nectar.  
•Calcium - With a low glycemic rating, high inulin, and calcium, agave nectar accommodates calcium absorption for bone density and overall health. Getting calcium into your diet prevents osteoporosis and related conditions late in life.
•Calorie Counts - Cup for cup, agave nectar has a much lower calorie count than conventional sugar. According to industry resources, that estimates savings of up to 300 or more calories per cup when switching from cane sugar to agave nectar.
•Other Health Benefits - Fans of agave nectar also claim that this product can boost the immune system and help increase energy levels. It has also been reported to be helpful to some people in promoting weight loss, as part of a comprehensive diet that cuts down on processed foods and those where the nutritional value has been largely leached out or depleted.

Mexico's Independence Day - September 16
 
In the early nineteenth century, Mexico, with a little influence from the US and France, began talking about a revolt against Spain. Father Miguel Hidalgo from Dolores, Mexico, was a leader of one of the rallying groups. Hidalgo and his officers were planning a revolt for late fall of 1810. The Spanish people found out about the revolt which led the Spanish Government to order the arrest of Hidalgo and his officers. When Hidalgo found out, he called a meeting at his church. He rang the church bell on the night of September 15, 1810 to call his congregation to mass. Here Father Hidalgo rallied the people to fight. He gave the speech which is now known as 'Grito de Delores', saying "Viva Mexico" and "Viva la independencia!" These famous words have been remembered and are said each year at the Independence Day celebrations. 
 
Day of the Dead 
(Spanish: Día de Muertos) is a Mexican holiday celebrated throughout Mexico and around the world in other cultures. The holiday focuses on gatherings of family and friends to pray for and remember friends and family members who have died. It is particularly celebrated in Mexico, where it is a national holiday, and all banks are closed. The celebration takes place on November 1 and 2, in connection with the Catholic holidays of All Saints' Day and All Souls' Day. Traditions connected with this holiday include building private altars honouring the deceased & decorating with sugar skulls, marigolds, favourite foods and beverages of the dearly departed. The festivities mixes sadness, fond memories, celebrations & honouring the souls of the departed.
