Agave nectar: A list of dangerous side-effects

Obesity: A person having lemonade with 2 tablespoons of Agave nectar could end up consuming around 120 calories.

Tooth decay: Agave nectar is rich in fructose which acts as a source of food for the bacteria present in the mouth.

Elevated triglycerides: An increased intake of Agave nectar may lead to the conversion of fructose into triglycerides at a larger scale. This may lead to major health problems such as heart disease and stroke.

Diabetes: Agave nectar is marketed as a product that is good for diabetes due to the low level of the glycemic index. On a long-term basis, the high amount of fructose present in the Agave nectar is converted by the liver into triglycerides and stored in the fat cells.
