Yacon is a root indigenous to the Andes of Peru and Bolivia. Also known as the Peruvian Ground Apple or Sunroot, it has been prized since the Incan civilization as a pleasantly sweet tasting tuber. A close relative of the Jerusalem artichoke the tuber’s sweet taste is mainly comprised of Fos or Fructo- oligosaccharides. Fructo-oligosaccharides are a type of dietary sugar that the body does not metabolize. These indigestible carbohydrates support the growth of beneficial bacteria in the colon without a significant impact on blood glucose levels. As a prebiotic, Yacon aids in supporting gastrointestinal health and maintaining the optimal growth and balance of beneficial bacterial.
Organic Traditions Yacon Gold™ Syrup is made from the tubers of the Yacon root through a proprietary cold mechanical process. No heat, solvents or chemicals are utilized. The cold process not only ensures that the Fructo-oligosaccharides are not degraded through the processing, but that the syrup has the most natural and delicious taste.
Yacon Gold™ Syrup is a light amber colored syrup with a delicate, sweet floral taste. It is simply the most incredible natural sweetener you have ever tried! Yacon Gold™ Syrup is a healthy substitute for other conventional sweeteners such as sugar, honey, agave and maple syrup. Not as sweet as conventional sugar, Yacon Gold™ Syrup has a delicately sweet, floral taste. There are no additives, colorants, flavors or additional sweeteners added, just 100% pure, cold pressed yacon syrup.
Start with the same amount as you would use of sugar or honey in any recipe, taste and adjust the amount from there. Add 1-2 teaspoons of Organic Traditions Yacon Syrup to your favorite herbal tea, cacao drink, coffee or smoothies. Drizzle it over plain yogurt, cereal, berries and more.
