Navitas Naturals Organic Yacon Syrup
Navitas Naturals Yacon Syrup is a low-glycemic sweetener that tastes like molasses. With half the calories of sugar and a high concentration of indigestible inulin, yacon is a friendly alternative sweetener for diabetics and those looking to reduce sugar. Use it like any other sweet syrup to liven up baked goods, smoothies, desserts, sauces and dressings.
Yacon is a South American tuber (from the Asteraceae family) that looks a bit like a potato, but tastes more like an apple. Yacon's health benefits and pleasant taste have been appreciated by native Peruvian cultures for thousands of years. Navitas Naturals Yacon Syrup is an excellent way to add sweetness to your diet without the negative effects of cane sugar or high fructose corn syrup.
Yacon syrup's sweetness comes from a high concentration of inulin, a complex sugar that breaks down slowly into fructooligosaccharides (FOS). It tastes sweet but won't spike your blood sugar. Yacon is also an excellent source of minerals including potassium, calcium, phosphorous and iron, as well as 20 amino acids.
