Discover Organic Traditions Yacon Syrup, a light amber coloured syrup with a delicate, sweet floral taste. Yacon Syrup is a healthy substitute for other conventional sweeteners such as sugar, honey and agave nectar, and the most incredible natural sweetener you have ever tried! Yacon is a root indigenous to the Andes of Bolivia and Peru. Also known as Sunroot or Peruvian Ground Apple, it has been treasured since the Incan civilization as a pleasantly sweet tasting tuber. A close relative of the Jerusalem artichoke, Yacon’s sweet taste is mainly comprised of FOS or Fructo-oligosaccharides. Fructo-oligosaccharides are carbohydrates that support the beneficial gut microbiome. As a prebiotic, Yacon supports the optimal growth and balance of beneficial bacteria within the digestive system. Organic Traditions Yacon Syrup is expertly made using a proprietary low temperature mechanical process without chemicals or solvents. This low temperature process not only ensures that the Fructo-oligosaccharides are not degraded, but that the syrup has the most natural and delicious taste. Unlike conventional sugars, Yacon Syrup has significantly less impact on blood glucose levels.There are no additives, colorants, flavours or additional sweeteners added, just 100% pure Certified Organic Yacon syrup.
