  • Yacon Syrup Overview

    Yacon Syrup is a delicious sweetener that is extracted from the tuberous roots of the yacon plant (Smallanthus Sonchifolius), which is indigenous to the Andes mountains, located in South America. The Yacon plant, a species of perennial daisy, is also sometimes called llacon, strawberry jicama, Bolivian sunroot, ground pear and Peruvian ground apple. The edible part of the plant and the source of its syrup is found in the cluster of tuberous root vegetables. It has a sweet taste, similar to molasses or caramelized sugar, making it perfect for use as a natural sweetener, without the excess calories.
  • Yacon Syrup Benefits

    In Peru, yacon is known for its nutritional properties as it has few calories and low sugar levels. The syrup is high in fructooligosaccharides (FOS), an indigestible polysaccharide made up of fructose or natural sugars. They are basically carbohydrates that are only partially absorbed and prebiotic in nature. The consumption of FOS does not increase blood glucose, which means it has a low glycemic index.* Studies have shown that fructooligosaccharides promote the growth of good bacteria and for these reasons yacon syrup has been known to aid digestive issues. It is also a significant source of antioxidants.

    *”Yacon Syrup, scores best in the Glycemic Index for Sweeteners that are sugar based. It derives it's sweetness from Fructo-oligosaccharides, a type of sugar with a very low GI. It is probably the only truly raw, organic, natural, low calorie, and low glycemic sweetener available.”

    Yacon syrup is a healthy, low-calorie sweetener, not a miracle drug. The statements herein have not been reviewed by the FDA. Alovitox Naturals products are not intended to treat, diagnose, cure or prevent any disease
