Island Abbey’s newest innovation

AFTER TRAVELLING IN SPACE WITH ITS HONIBE LINE OF FOODS, ISLAND ABBEY FOODS IS HOPING TO HIT SIMILAR HEIGHTS WITH PURAGAVE, ITS NEWEST INNOVATION.

News-IslandAbbeyThe PEI-based specialty food and natural health product producer, has created a novel patented pure dried platform technology to solidify blue agave nectar. This new platform technology maintains the natural flavour, colour and other elements of the raw agave and does not de-nature it in any way. PurAgave follows closely on the heels of Honibe, an award-winning line of pure honey products that the Canadian Space Agency took to the International Space Station as a ‘Snack for Space’.

“We are very excited to announce, after several years of research and development, our newest tasty product innovation: pure solid Agave,” says John Rowe, President of Island Abbey Foods Ltd. “Our goal at Island Abbey Foods is to continue to introduce world’s first products for consumers looking for high quality food and natural health products, as we have done with our Honibe brand. PurAgave is a reflection of our team’s hard work and creativity as we continue to pursue this passion. All I can say is Mmmmmm, they did good!”

The PurAgave brand product line includes: PurAgave Agave Delights, the world’s first 100 per cent pure dried Agave candy and sweetener for tea or coffee; and PurAgave Agave Lozenges, which contain 100 per cent pure dried Agave with a small amount of naturally derived menthol and eucalyptus, and no artificial ingredients.
