USDA Organic Yacon Powder
If other sugar alternatives just aren’t doing it for you, try our Yacon Powder. Five grams per teaspoon, and a glycemic index that is less than an apple!
Organic Yacon Powder has a tasty flavor like molasses or caramelized sugar. It is used in baked goods, soups, stews, cereal to give it a hint of a unique wholesome sweetness to spice up any meal.
Whatever you decide to put it in, Yacon Powder will help you support and maintain a healthy blood sugar level, with an added sweetness!
Similar to molasses, yacon syrup comes from the root of the yacon, which is thought of as a medicinal plant in Peru. The juice from the yacon root is extracted, filtered, and then evaporated in a process that resembles the way maple syrup is made. It is then hydrated into a rich, golden powder that has an incredibly low glycemic index.
Many people who have tried yacon in syrup or powder form have discovered benefits. Results can vary, but here are some experiences:
A Sweet Way to Lose Weight?
Many consumers replace their sugar with Yacon Powder because they believe it helps them lose weight. Results can vary, but they have commented that it helps keep their hunger under control longer in between meals.
One theory on why this happens is that yacon may help support healthy hormones that trigger hunger and increase production hormones that make the person feel full.
Better Bathroom Breaks
Yacon seems to have helped those who have a hard time going to the bathroom. Yacon has levels of fructooligosaccharide (FOS), which is prebiotic that helps probiotics (healthy gut bacteria) grow in your gut. The more healthy bacteria you have, the easier it is to go to the bathroom.
But the sweetest benefit Yacon Powder has is that it gives you a wonderful taste at only 5 calories per teaspoon – sugar has 20 grams – a glycemic index that is lower than a carrot, grapefruit, and an apple!
