Agave for Passover

mrotmd Apr 4, 2011 06:47 PM

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?

    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.

        The Rabbi Eidlitz notes a few threads down speak to this; agave is ok .

          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.
