I bought this bottle of ‘no-sugar’ BBQ sauce at the Whole Foods downtown Austin. Agave Nectar is used as sweetner.

As you might have read here, me and hubby ditched all the nasty high fructose corn syrup products from our fridge. And slowly I’ve been replacing those items with what seem to be healthy alternatives.

The BBQ sauce was last on the list.

I was gonna make my own and then I gave myself a talk and decided that was just plain crazy.

So when mom and I were in Whole Foods this weekend I found a brand that replaced the usual ‘white sugar’ with Molasses and Agave Nectar.

(At least Molasses provides the all important nutrient IRON. Plus, the nectar is from different Agave plants.)

Organicville makes this Tangy BBQ Sauce (in the picture). It’s gluten free and tasty. (VitaCost sells it online.)

If you’re into ‘no cane sugar’ items, you might want to give this sauce a whirl.
