Tequila As a Sweetener

The American Chemical Society (ACS) announced a brand-new sugar substitute that’s making its way to your supermarket shelves soon.

The main ingredient? Tequila.

More specifically, the sweetener comes from the agave plant (which is also used to make tequila).

Agavins, the natural sugars found in the agave plant, have researchers excited. As a natural sweetener, it’s non-digestible and acts as a dietary fiber.

To get technical for a moment… agavins are fructans, which are compounds linked together by long strings. The size of those strings is what makes them non-digestible by the body. In layman’s terms: The sweetness that agavins provide isn’t coupled with high calories.

The other benefit of agavins is that they aren’t absorbed by the body, so they won’t cause headaches like artificial sweeter

Although agavins may be healthier (in that they aren’t chemically processed), they probably still won’t be effective when it comes to weight loss.

The one thing that’s still missing is that they don’t give the brain the signal (mentioned above) to make the body feel satisfied.
