Superstar Sweetener from the Peruvian Andes
Though packed with sweetness, the sugar in Yacon is mainly fructooligosaccharide, which cannot be absorbed by the body. This means Yacon is both naturally low-calorie and low in mono and disaccharides (less than 1 gram per serving of the sugars that rapidly elevate blood sugar levels). Yacon root syrup has little influence on the glucose tolerance curve and is dramatically less glycemic than honey, agave, or maple syrup.
Yacon syrup is also a prebiotic, which helps control flora in the intestine and gives signals to the body for probiotics to grow. This helps regulate digestion and encourages the body to heal itself from the inside out.
Our yacon syrup is certified organic, Non-GMO, vegan, rich in minerals, and delicious! You can use the syrup similar to how you would use any other sweetener. It has a one of a kind flavor similar to caramel, molasses and maple syrup and is no doubt one of the healthiest natural sweeteners on the market today.
