All sugar should be consumed in small quantities no matter which one you choose. If you need to have something that is low-glycemic then agave is an alternative. There are many articles for and against it as with all other sugars. So the best thing to do is consume in small amounts. :)

Agave isn't as wholesome as some want us to believe. It's fructose and has almost twice as much as HFCS - eek! I can post a bunch of articles on it but found this that cites most of the other articles www.savvyvegetarian.com/blog/health/truth-
about-agave-nectar-agave-syrup

I prefer to use Wholesome Sweeteners Blue Agave nectar. It's great for baking with gluten-free flours because it helps add moisture. It is natural without a bad aftertaste. You can also put it in coffee and tea. It's a low-glycemic food too. Here is an article with more info exm.nr/HSUINh Hope it helps. Have a great day!

Sugar is made from beets or cane sugar so it is safe, like JENCORINNE said and that you have a fungus problem. Fungus likes sugar.

There's no gluten in sugar so should be safe, unless you're dealing with Candida or other sugar issues.

We normally buy organic sugar, but on a wheat/gluten free diet, can that be used in recipes?

Nothing worth having comes easy!!!!
