I've heard that agave is just as good, and even healthier than honey. Anyone a fan?
Sugar is sugar. The glucose/fructose ratio varies a bit, but cane sugar, beet sugar, maple sugar, honey, agave syrup, rice syrup, corn syrup, all are basically empty calories. To say that one is somehow better than another requires a bunch of hand-waving and shaky assumptions. Bottom line, none should be consumed in quantity.
I did a bit of research, and what I found is much what you said. The only advantages agave has:
Lower glycemic index (not important to me)
It's vegan (marginally important to me)
Lower glycemic index is definitely important to me.
