Yacon, a tasty root vegetable originating in Peru, is naturally low calorie and low GI. It is rich in fructooligosaccharides (FOS) which act as a prebiotic. FOS are a type of sugar which is not absorbed into the blood stream, instead providing important nutrients to benefit microflora of the colon, supporting healthy bowel function, calcium absorption and healthy cholesterol levels. Yacon also has benefits for weight management. Matakana SuperFoods Organic Yacon Root Powder is suitable for the whole family and especially for those requiring less sugar in their diet.
Add to smoothies, baking and desserts or wherever you need a natural low calorie sweetener. 40 serves per pack.
* Take a teaspoon of yacon powder when taking probiotics for inner health to increase colonisation of healthy gut bacteria
