This premium sweetener is extremely low on the Glycemic Index, so it hardly impacts blood sugar — great news for diabetics, low-carb dieters, and people who prefer sustainable energy over the post-sugar blues. Pure Yacón syrup adds character to teas and dessert recipes, imparting a natural caramel flavor with hints of molasses. Pure Yacón’s sweet flavor comes primarily from indigestible sweet fiber called Fructooligosacarides (FOS), which make it an extremely low-glycemic alternative to high-sugar sweeteners.
  • Truly low-glycemic sweetener that won’t spike blood sugar
  • Lighter color, sweeter flavor than high-heat yacon: more like caramel than molasses
  • Compliant with the purity standards of California's Prop 65, the most stringent in the world

Pure Yacon Root

Yacon: Smart Sweetener

Unlike sugar, honey, and even agave syrup, this natural nectar won't spike (or crash) your blood-sugar levels. Yacón's sweet flavor comes from its low-calorie, low-carb FOS (fructooligosaccharides) a type of fiber that tastes sweet but isn't absorbed into the blood. Instead, FOS becomes food for your natural pro-biotics, helping to stimulate the growth of friendly intestinal flora, which can enhance metabolism, immunity, digestion, nutrient absorption, and more.

Changing Lives for Farmers

Our advanced, ultra-pure processing has turned an ordinary root vegetable into a valuable crop for an entire village of small-holder farmers in China. These traditional farmers normally had to transport their freshly-harvested yacon roots to distant markets to sell as an ordinary root vegetable, where they were squeezed on price and vulnerable to problems with spoilage. Now, they are able to sell their yacon roots in a single location, close to their farms, for a much higher price (because they are contributing to the production of valuable yacon syrup).

Gold vs. Dark Yacon

Ultra-Pure Processing

The pesticide-free yacón roots are fresh-pressed, low-temperature dehydrated, multi-filtered, and purity-tested to bring you this pristine superfood syrup, which is in full compliance with the world's most stringent purity standards for heavy metals and other contaminants (California's Proposition 65). While some Yacón syrups are dark brown (and higher in sugars and calories), our low-temperature process prevents dark-colored sugar formation. Go for the Gold!
