Yacon Syrup

Pin It

Loving Earth certified organic Yacon Syrup hails from Peru. A richly treacle-like low GI sweetener, Yacon acts as a pre-biotic thereby helping the intestines to function efficiently and eliminate toxins and waste products from the body. It strengthens and activates the good bacteria in our stomach like L acidophilus and B bifidum, which in turn helps enhance our immune system and suppress pathogens such as Candida albicans (thrush).

Yacon works as a prebiotic due to it being comprised of long-chain complex sugars, which are not absorbed and digested in the same way as short-chain simple sugars. These long-chain sugars travel to the intestinal tract and provide food 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 an optimal environment for probiotics to grow. Many people take anti-biotics (arguably too) frequently these days, meaning that our natural probiotics are constantly being run down. If you have good sources of prebiotic material in your diet, then you're going to be creating the optimal environment for the probiotic bacteria to repopulate and thrive. This is why Yacon Syrup is considered by many to be one of the healthiest sweeteners in the world.

The whole Yacon root is a distant relative of the sunflower. Its delicious edible tubers, which are low in calories, have a mild sweet flavour and an unusual moist, crunchy texture slightly reminiscent of freshly picked apple, pineapple and watermelon.

NOTE: Due to popular demand Yacon Syrup is currently sold out in NZ. To pre-order Yacon Syrup in our next shipment please email us at info@begoodorganics.com and we will reserve some for you and let you know when it arrives back in store.
