Thanks for your help -- and sorry to hear the labeling isn't as clear as it could be. Just trying to make Moonshine Marshmallows! http://food52.com/recipes/19877-moonshine-marshmallows

Yum! Let us know how they turn out.

Interesting article. Unfortunately it doesn't seem like there are requirements that manufacturers differentiate between the two, so when you're buying something labeled "agave nectar" it's just as likely to be "agave syrup" by the definitions in the article.

Nothing. As far as I can tell they're different names for the same thing.
