Yacon Polvo - Yacon Root Powder
Yacon is a large perennial plant that is mainly grown and cultivated for its tuberous roots. The roots are crunchy and sweet, it has lots of benefits, such as weight and glucose control and FOS. This superfood has been cultivated ince 1200 B.C and still used by Andean people as a natural sweetener and is currently recognized to be one of the best superfoods.
often called "The Apple of the Earth," our gently-dried raw Yacon Root Powder has a delicate sweet taste and contains fructooligosaccharides (FOS). FOS taste sweet but passes through the body undigested, so yacon root only contains about half the calories of an average sugar source. Yacon root also has a prebiotic effect, meaning it allows intestinal flora that favor colon and digestive health to flourish. Use it to sweeten anything from smoothies to raw cookies and energy bars.
