About Yacon Extract:
Yacon Extract Powder is considered a prebiotic. The powder alone is
slightly sweet and often used as a sugar substitute.
A valuable health food and alternative sweetener, yacon’s greatest
attribute is its naturally high content of inulin, a complex sugar
that breaks down slowly into fructooligosaccharides (FOS). The high
levels of FOS is a quality that is beneficial for two reasons.
First, although yacon tastes sweet, the sugar of inulin is not
digestible and simply passes through the body. Therefore yacon only
contains about half the calories of an average sugar source.
Secondly, FOS promotes the production of healthy probiotics within
the body, which can contribute to better digestion and colon
Our yacon powder is lightly textured and has a delicate, sweet
flavor. Use it to sweeten anything from smoothies to raw cookies
and energy bars. It can stand in as a like-for-like sugar
substitute by volume, however it is less sweet than sugar (or its
sister, yacon syrup).
Yacon has been enjoyed by South Americans for several centuries,
originating in the Andes. It is related to the Jerusalem artichoke
