Yacon (Smallanthus sonchifolius) is a plant native to South America which has been used as nutrition for centuries. The syrup, which is obtained from the juicy-sweet tuber, is an excellent, delicious alternative to conventional granulated sugar. Its high fructo-oligosaccharide content (FOS) and indigestible fibres make Yacon syrup a low-glycaemic index sweetener with low calorific content and therefore of interest to all those wishing to reduce the amount of sugar in their diet. Our 100% pure, natural organic yacon syrup is manufactured from yacon roots, which are cultivated in Peru according to stringent ecological principles. It is characterised by a wonderfully mild taste with a light, fruity sweetness. Yacon syrup is highly flexible in use and is superb for sweetening, for example, drinks, desserts and mueslis, but also can be used for cooking and baking.
