Yacon is a large perennial plant that is mainly grown and cultivated for its tuberous roots. The roots are crunchy and sweet, it has lots of benefits, such as weight and glucose control and FOS. This superfood has been cultivated ince 1200 B.C and still used by Andean people as a natural sweetener and is currently recognized to be one of the best superfoods.
We have many presentations of this superfood: raw yacon powder, yacon syrup, raw yacon semi-dried slices, yacon chips.
Our 100% organic yacon root powder is a great low-calorie and low-glycemic sweetener that tastes great and helps keep blood sugar stable throughout the day.
Grown on small family-owned organic farms high in the mountain ranges of the Peruvian Andes and often called "The Apple of the Earth," our gently-dried raw Yacon Root Powder has a delicate sweet taste and contains fructooligosaccharides (FOS). FOS taste sweet but passes through the body undigested, so yacon root only contains about half the calories of an average sugar source. Yacon root also has a prebiotic effect, meaning it allows intestinal flora that favor colon and digestive health to flourish. Use it to sweeten anything from smoothies to raw cookies and energy bars. Our raw Yacon Root Powder is packed with sweet possibilities!
