The Yacon root is harvested in Peru and is gaining popularity as an alternative natural sweetener. Also known as Peruvian ground apple, Yacon is sweet in flavour but low-glycaemic. Yacon Powder contains high levels of inulin, a fructooligosaccharide (FOS) that provides sweetness in a form that is indigestible by humans so therefore will pass through the digestive tract and not affect blood sugar levels. Since these sugars are not digested they are also low in calories making Superfoodies’ Organic Raw Yacon Powder suitable for diet and low calorie foods.

Ingredients: Organic Yacon Root Powder (100%)

Serving suggestions:
Add 1 Tbsp. to your smoothies for flavour and sweetness, use on cereal, in baking.
