Our Yacon Syrup is a fantastic dietary source of "fructooligosaccharides", sugar molecules connected in a way that makes them unrecognisable to the digestive system. They stimulate the taste buds but cannot be digested making this a great low carbohydrate/low GI alternative to sugar. It is pre-biotic, feeding the friendly bacteria in the digestive system, when the bacteria digest the fructooligosaccharides they produce short chain fatty acids which are thought to have anti-obesity effects.
Integrating Superfoods into your daily diet is simple and easy. Superfoods are particularly dense in nutrients, and free from any bulking agents or fillers. By adding superfoods to your daily diet you can fortify your food with super nutrition. Try replacing breakfast with a superfood smoothie. The smoothie can be made with a base of nut milk, seed milk or non-dairy milk such as rice milk, alternatively the main body of the smoothie can be created with fruit or vegetable juices.
Then additional superfood and herb powders can be added to fortify the smoothie with extra beneficial properties, the powders are largely dissolvable and can be scooped in and then blended or shaken until fully mixed in. Superfoods can be easily added to breakfast cereals such as porridge, muesli or granola. The powders, berries, grains, seeds and nuts can also be added to soups, salads, stews, curries, and used as toppings for any meal.
Think about what you can replace in your daily diet with Superfoods. For full instructions go to our How to use Superfoods page.

Yacon Syrup is made from the big bulbous roots of the Yacon Plant. All roots have been cultivated under strict organic parameters insuring that no pesticides or chemical fertilizers have been used in the farming process. After the roots have reached peak maturity they are harvested and brought in for processing. After selection the roots are washed and peeled before being scalded. They are then put into a special juice extractor to harvest all the internal Yacon juice. This juice is then filtered and put into a vacuum concentration unit to evaporate out most of the water. After this process the Yacon Syrup is filtered again and tested before being made ready for shipping.
