cold pressed yacon nectar in a 25:1 proportion, rich in soluble fiber.

Yacon is one of nature’s best sweet kept secrets. A tuber grown in Peru and Ecuador it is a perfect functional ingredient and food that offers sugar control and immune system support to the human body. Known as the “pear of the earth”, yacon has high levels of FOS, the acronym that stands for Fructo Oligo Saccharides, a complex carbohydrate the body cannot recognize and absorb or convert into energy, which allows it to practically rank zero in the glycemic index scale.
 Yacon is also a pre-biotic by excellence as it increases the overall gastrointestinal tract health and is a safe natural ingredient for regular use.
The fiber in yacon roots contains fructose that has simple sugars. To obtain a low glycemic index and the highest health benefits, yacon needs minimum and proper handle and processing. To extract the nectar some companies use substances such as maltodextrine, not UHTCO. “This is a first cold pressed yacon nectar in a 25:1 proportion, rich in soluble fiber,”

 Yacon Syrup is made from selected certified organic yacon roots and is recommended for normal sugar balance and healthy cholesterol levels.
Used for many years by indigenous communities in Yauyos, Peru, Yacon Syrup supports the proliferation of bifid bacteria, which helps restore the balance of normal bowel flora.

 Yacon Syrup is high in protein and does not contain caffeine.

Yacon Syrup is 100% pure natural plant material with no additives, colors or artificial flavors added. Prebiotics/FOS A balanced gut flora helps to promote health absorption and digestion, and significantly improves and regulates our immune function.
What many people do not know is that FOS, or 'prebiotics', can help to naturally increase our production of 'healthy bacteria', no live cells required.

 Prebiotics are defined based on 3 criteria;
1) The (food)source must be non-digestable and resistant to gastric acidity, hydrolysis by intestinal digestive enzymes, and gastrointestinal absorption.
2) It must be fermentable
3) should, in a selective way, stimulate growth and/or metabolic activity of intestinal bacteria, which it does at the expense of pathogenic bacteria.

 Two specific fructooligosaccharides (FOS), inulin and oligofructose, are considered by Marcel Roberfroid, the man who both discovered and named prebiotics in 1995, to be the only sources to fully meet his definition of prebiotics.
 Although a food cannot be considered a prebiotic, certain foods can be a rich source of prebiotic or have higher prebiotic potential.

 Foods with a high inulin content, for example include Jerusalem artichoke, onion, garlic, and chicory root. These foods are said to selectively increase the production of both the lactic acid producing bacteria (Lactobacillus species) and the bifidobacterium species of 'beneficial' bacteria. FOS is a form of fibre, meaning it also has the added benefit of being able to regulate blood sugar, applicable not only to individuals with diabetes or prediabetic, but helpful for those looking to control cravings and weight gain.

 Fibre has also been shown to help to lower cholesterol. A synbiotic diet is one that is high in both prebiotic and probiotic foods/supplements. Pre and probiotics when taken together enhance each others' effects.
This is why many companies are now including prebiotic fibre/FOS/inulin in with the live cells of a probiotic. Prebiotics can be taken this way, in capsule form, or in powder. Some companies are now combining these rich prebiotic substances with protein, multi mineral combinations and greens to increased overall health.

 Use it directly or as a sweetener in any drink or food preparation. Yacon Syrup is the ideal product for diabetics!
