Whole Earth Sweetener Agave 50, which includes agave nectar and stevia extract, has a medium amber color. The lighter syrups undergo less heating and a more thorough filtration to produce a more mildly flavored product that is neutral enough to be used in many culinary applications. The darker syrups are filtered less, and the solids left in the syrup make for a stronger nectar with a flavor sometimes compared to maple syrup. As agave syrup is produced from natural products having color variance, colors will differ in appearance from time to time.
