I dunno, but in reading about honey they seem to say favor the mildest pale. An agave promotion site calls it equally sweet to honey http://www.allaboutagave.com/substit...her-sugars.php and thus probably honey can use same formula i quote below. They do say honey can kill infants thru botulism and has twice the glycemic index of agave. But i'm more interested in their claim honey or agave is almost twice as sweet than corn syrup... maybe it's almost affordable, except vs high fructose cs.
Substituting Agave Nectar for Granulated Sugar
For each cup of white sugar replaced, use 2/3 of a cup of agave and reduce other liquids by 1/4 to 1/3 cup. This substitution will also work for Demerara Sugar, Turbinado Sugar, Evaporated Cane Juice, or Sucanat.
