Chantico is made exclusively from organic Mexican agave. Our entire line has a naturally sweet taste, adding the perfect amount of sweetness to your food and beverages. Chantico Blue Agave Powders are sustainably grown on our own estates in the state of Jalisco (the home of Tequila) and produced in our state-of-the-art facility near the farms.
Chantico Agave Syrups come from a Wild Salmiana Agave species that is communally grown in the mountains of the state of Zacatecas. We contract with the growers there and know where each batch of agave comes from!
Chantico uses only organic Mexican agave to create premium quality, organic agave sweeteners. All of our products are crafted using single-origin, Mexican agave and a traditional, safe thermal production process. The results are superior-tasting agave products that have fewer calories per serving than conventional sugars without the chemical aftertaste of artificial sweeteners.
WHAT IS AGAVE?
Chantico Agave is an all-natural, organic, Non-GMO sweetener made from our estate-grown, organic Mexican agave plants. Agave plants are large succulents that look similar to aloe or yucca. To create Chantico Agave, our jimadores cut all of the leaves off of the agave plant using a tool called a coa de jima, leaving behind the piña, or core. The piña is then treated using our proprietary process to create a delicious, viscous, sweet-tasting syrup. The agave may then be dried to create our granulated powder.
