Product Description

What is it?

Yacon is a perennial plant in Andean region. It is cultivated and grown for the crisp and sweet-tasting tuberous root. It tastes like cross between apple and watermelon. Therefore it has a nickname “apple of the earth”. The content of yacon root is mostly water and fructo-oligosaccharides. Although Yacon root tastes sweet, its sweetness come from inulin, which is an indigestible sugar. So yacon roots contain fewer calories than other equally sweet things.

Our Organic Raw Yacon Powder is a great low-calorie and low-glycemic sweetener that tastes great and helps keep blood sugar stable throughout the day.  Yacon Powder is a unique source of Fructooligosaccharides (FOS), a type of sugar that breaks down slowly and passes through the body without absorption.


How to use?

The recommended daily usage is 1-2 teaspoons. This powder blends well with juice, rice or soy milk, and yogurt, or can be added to your favorite smoothie. It can also be mixed into your homemade energy bars. While you can add this powder to a variety of recipes, raw food enthusiasts avoid cooking or heating in order to preserve the food’s nutritional value.
