Smallanthus sonchifolius

Know it better
With a sweet taste and a crunchy texture, yacon is a juicy root grown in the temperate zones of the Andes. Its flavor runs between apples and carrots and it can be consumed cooked, raw or as a syrup.

What can I do for you?
Yacon contains fructooligosaccharides (FOS) that can not be hydrolyzed by the human body and travel through the digestive tract without being metabolized; that is why there is no absorption of sugar by the human body. Yacon is a great source of inulin, perfect for diets low in sugar and calories, commonly prescribed to patients with diabetes. The yácono also supports the digestive system, regulates the intestinal flora and helps prevent diseases such as colon cancer. It improves calcium absorption and synthesizes complex B vitamins.
