Yacon syrup is a malty sweetener which is best used spread on bread and crackers. It is not overly sweet, so if you have a sweet tooth it is maybe not for you. But if you are looking for one of the healthiest sweeteners on the planet, then maybe you should choose yacon. It is suitable for diabetics and those on an anti-candida diet.

The sugars in yacon are called fructoligosaccharides. These sugars taste sweet, but are not recognised by the body, so yacon has no impact on the blood sugar. It is also high in antioxidants. 

Yacon is a Peruvian vegetable, similiar to a parsnip. It is illegal to export the whole yacon root out of Peru, which is why it is unfamiliar to us in the West. Plus, until recently, it was outlawed under the EU Novel Foods Act. It was passed for sale in the EU in 2014.

Our yacon syrup is produced by hand-selecting the roots, then washing, disinfecting and peeling them. After this they are pressed, filtered, vacuum concentrated, filtered again and bottled. Our yacon syrup is guaranteed raw; most other yacon syrups on the market are heated during pressing and pasteurised so they are not raw. 

It is an important crop in South America. It has been grown since anceint times on the eastern slopes of the Andes, from venezuela to north western Argentina. It was a trandtional crop of the original Peruvian populations. Yacon is favoured for its juicy tuberous root which have been used for centuries as a traditional folk treatment. 

If you like yacon syrup, you will also want to check out the dried yacon root pieces and the yacon flour. And don't miss out on Magic Mix, our trail mix which includes yacon, and is one of our best-selling products.

This and stevia are our top recommendations for people who are seeking to avoid sugar completely.

It is with regret that we are unable to share with you more information about this product. Various EU legislation forbids us (and all other food business operators) from claiming that these products can offer any possible health benefits. Many of our customers already know about these foods, and come back to us time and time again for their favourite items. We ask customers new and old to do your own research, and to trust Raw Living to provide you and your nearest and dearest with the best quality products at the lowest prices. Thank you for your understanding.

Our yacon is produced by a farmer named Lucho Alva. Lucho proudly owns a 1000 hectares farm, inherited from his father. In the 90´s the region was very dangerous due to terrorist groups. At that time he had to flee from his home after his father was assassinated by teterrorist groups. Years later he went back to his land, and today he has became the largest organic yacon farmer in Peru. He employs over 100 people for his operation and provides free technical assistance to neighbor communities in organic production.

Our Yacon syrup is concentrated at low temperatures, but need to be pasteurized before filling bulk bins to eliminate mold spores.  In Yacon, the most important nutrient is the FOS content. Because of this process, our supplier is the only company that assures minimum 30% FOS in our product. FOS is not heat stable so products excessively heated will have lower content of it and higher glycemic index due to production of short chain sugars from FOS fractions.
