The Yacon is a root (of the Asteraceae family), yacon is often called the “apple of the earth” due to its sweet and juicy crunch. Yacon is traditionally used in its native land of Peru as both a delicious food and a medicinal treatment for various ailments.

This mellow root has a delightfully delicate sweetness that can be extracted and used as a healthy sugar substitute. Dried Foods Peru offers sweet yacon in two easy-to-use forms: powder and syrup.

If you think sweet is unhealthy, Yacon Root will prove you wrong. Yacon, though deliciously sweet, is a natural dietetic and prebiotic food. It is grown in the Andes (Peru & Ecuador) for its crisp, sweet-tasting tuberous root. The texture and flavor have been described as a cross between a fresh apple and watermelon.Traditionally, Yacon has been used in South America both as food and to help control blood sugar and improve digestion.
