Navitas Naturals Kosher Yacon Slices Raw Organic Description:

Navitas Naturals Yacon Slices are made from an ancient South American tuber that tastes more like a fruit than a root. Yacon has a reputation for being one of the healthiest sweeteners due to its high content of inulin, which has a low glycemic impact and provides healthy probiotics. Chewy dried Yacon Slices taste a bit like a delicious, exotic apple.

The root of a hardy perennial plant (of the Asteraceae family), yacon is often called the “apple of the earth” due to its sweet and juicy crunch. Yacon is traditionally used in its native land of Peru as both a delicious food and a medicinal treatment for various ailments.

Treasured by local communities throughout South America, yacon continues to have a place as an offering during Andean rituals and festivities. This mellow root has a delightfully delicate sweetness that can be extracted and used as a healthy sugar substitute.

A valuable health food and an effective alternative sweetener, yacon’s greatest attribute is its naturally high content of inulin, a complex sugar that breaks down slowly into the sweet tasting but low-sugar fructooligosaccharides (FOS). Yacon also provides 20 amino acids, potassium, calcium, phosphorous and iron.
Knowledge of the health benefits of yacon has been passed down for generations. The high level of fructooligosaccharides (FOS) found in yacon is beneficial. Although yacon tastes sweet, the sugars from the inulin are not actually digestible and simply pass through the body. Therefore, yacon only contains about half the calories of an average sugar source.
