Product Description

Yacon Syrup

Loving Earth Yacon Syrup - Organic

Certified Organic Yacon Syrup from Oxapampa, Peru. A richly treacle-like sweetener, Yacon also acts as a pre-biotic and thereby helps the intestines to function efficiently and eliminate toxins and waste products from the body.      

What is it?

The Yacón root from Peru is a distant relative of the sunflower. It grows in the warm, temperate Andean valleys at elevations below 3,500 m. Its delicious edible tubers, which are sweet and low in calories, hold a variety of benefits. It has a mild sweet flavour and an unusual moist, crunchy texture slightly reminiscent of fresh-picked apple, pineapple and watermelon.

Ingredients

Organic Yacon Syrup  

How to use

Yacon is actually a health food –something you would take daily in small quantities as a supplement. Add it to smoothies or deserts as a nice, treacle-like sweetener.

Health Benefits

Yacon acts as a pre-biotic and thereby helps the intestines to function efficiently and eliminate toxins and waste products from the body. It strengthens and activates the good bacilli like L acidophilus and B bifidum which in turn helps enhance our immune systems and helps suppress putrefactive pathogens such as Candida albicans.

It has these qualities because it’s comprised of long-chain complex sugars known as Fructooligosaccharides (FOS), which are not absorbed and digested in the same way as short-chain simple sugars. FOS acts as a pre-biotic in humans, which means that it travels to the intestinal tract and provides food material for the pro-biotic bacteria there which work as part of our healthy digestive system. We all need probiotics to digest and assimilate food and thus gain nutrition. Prebiotics such as Yacon Syrup provide a good environment for probiotics to grow. Think of it like soil in a field: you can plant a seed in any field, but for it to grow and flourish, the soil must be of good quality. Yacon is an example of the quality “soil” which probiotics require. Many people take anti-biotics for medicinal purposes, meaning that our probiotics are constantly getting run down. If you have good sources of prebiotic material in your diet, then you’re going to create a really healthy environment for the probiotic bacteria to thrive. This is why Yacon Syrup is probably the healthiest sweetener out there.

Yacon is a useful sweet food for diabetics because its carbohydrates are stores in the form in inulin, which releases into the bloodstream slowly. Yacón has proven useful in preventing the following conditions:

  • Acne 
  • Colon disease 
  • Constipation 
  • Diabetes 
  • Low immune system 
  • Poor gastrointestinal health 
  • Obesity 
  • Osteoporosis

How it’s processed

Yacon is a root cultivated in mid-altitude Andean Valleys, providing a sustainable source of income for people there.
