Agave for Passover

Is there any Agave syrup kosher for Passover?
It has the lowest glycemic index of all non-artifcial sweetener, hence I could justify it with my diabetes... Is it kosher for Passover?

  1. Send an e-mail to Rabbi Eidlitz. He told us that honey that had no additives and was unprocessed, unpasturized, "un-un-un" (his words) was fine for Pesach and I believe he said agave also. He is wonderful about answering those types of questions.

          Wow! Thank you. As long as we are on the subject, how about maple?

            KLP Maple syrup definitely exists; I believe the brand name is Adirondack.
