The Yacon is a tuber grown in the Andes Mountains. After the purification and concentration of its extract Yacon syrup is obtained which has a characteristic sweet taste.
Yacon syrup, unlike most tubers, stores mainly fructooligosaccharides (FOS), a special type of sugars with attributes that are enormously beneficial to human health. FOS are low calorie sugars that do not raise blood glucose levels, which is why yacon syrup is an excellent product for diabetic patients.
Other benefits of yacon are as follows:
- Promotes weight loss
- High antioxidant content
- It promotes the health of the digestive system thanks to the FOS that act as prebiotics,
- Supports the cardiovascular system
- Improves bone density
- It’s an excellent source of iron
