Yacon Concentrate has the consistency of golden syrup, or a thick honey, and a rich, sweet resinous taste that can remind the taster of raisins.
The sugar in yacon is mainly fructooligosaccharides (FOS) prebiotics that pass through the digestive system without being metabolised, as the human system doesn’t have an enzyme to hydrolyse FOS. Therefore, it is tastes sweet, but with a GI score of only 40.
YACON contains natural prebiotic materials, supporting the growth and health of the microflora in our bodies. When our probiotic bacteria are well-taken care of and healthy, our body can maximise its intake of vitamins and minerals. By optimising the absorption levels of our food, we are able to get more “bang for our buck”, so to speak, when we eat any other foods.
