Pure yacon syrup assists in weight loss and slimming waist sizes, regulating blood sugar, and increasing daily fiber intake.
The syrup, distilled from the Peruvian tuber yacon -- contains up to 50 percent fructooligosacharides, or FOS. FOS, classified as a prebiotic, is a non-caloric sweetener and also a fiber source.
According to a 2009 Scientific study, daily intake of yacon syrup produced a significant decrease in body weight, waist circumference and body mass index, when taken as directed.
It is a Low-Glycemic sweetener so it's perfecct for diabetics!
I have been enjoying this syrup in my evening cup of hot peppermint tea. It's warm, rich flavor adds a hint of sweetness the tea needs. I'm also planning to try it in my baked bean and gingerbread recipes- in place of the usual molasses. I think it will be a wonderful addition! You can purchase this delicious, healthful Yacon syrup for yourself on Amazon.
I haven't noticed significant weight loss from using this Yacon syrup, but it is a welcome addition to my pantry!
