Organic Yacon Syrup by Loving Earth
Low GI Sweeteners
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.
