The great Agave debate....

Review of Biona Organic Agave Syrup

Quick and easy but I've had tastier

Advantages: Good value, not too bad for you, makes a quick meal
Disadvantages: Bland and tasteless, difficult to get all the sauce out of the pouch

There's a reason this has stuck around since the Victorian era!

Advantages: surprisingly versatile ingredient, sweet and deep flavours balance well
Disadvantages: too much may not be great for the teeth or the waistline
