Ingredients: 100% Yacon Powder (Smallanthus sonchifolius)
Yacon powder is derived from the yacon root, a South American tuber that tastes like an apple. Yacon is grown in the Andes, it thrives in high mountain valleys and produces a dense root system loaded with minerals and vitamins. Yacon root is particularly valuable as a health-food because it contains inulin, a complex sugar that the human body does not have the enzymes to break down in the digestive track, while it promotes healthy probiotics in the colon. For this reason, it is celebrated as an alternative sweetener for those with sensitivities, hypertension and diabetes.
Suggestions for use: Mix into drinks, smoothies, yogurt or porridge or use as a healthy sugar substitute in many recipes.
