Product Details

Live Superfoods Raw Organic Yacon Powder, 12 oz

Our yacon powder is lightly textured and has a delicate, sweet flavor. Use it to sweeten anything from smoothies to raw cookies and energy bars. It can stand in as a like-for-like sugar substitute by volume, however it is less sweet than sugar (or its sister, yacon syrup). Our powder is ground from USDA certified organic yacon root slices that have been dried at a low temperature. It is certified organic, vegan and raw.

Yacon has been enjoyed by South Americans for several centuries, originating in the Andes. It is related to the Jerusalem artichoke and sunflowers.

Yacon root is considered the world's richest source of fructooligosaccharides (FOS), a unique type of sugar (inulin) that can't be absorbed by the body. FOS acts as a prebiotic, serving as food for the "friendly" bacteria in the colon, and preclinical studies have indicated that consumption of FOS may help increase bone density and protect against osteoporosis. Because the sugar in yacon is mostly FOS, it is low in calories and is a good sweetener for use by dieters and diabetics.

FOS also acts as a prebiotic, serving as food for the "friendly" bacteria in the colon, including lactobacillus and bifidobacteria species. It provides health benefits including:

  • Aids digestion
  • Enhances absorption of calcium and magnesium
  • Improves elimination of toxins
  • May reduce the risk of colon cancer

FOS is also high in antioxidants and potassium. Preclinical studies have indicated that consumption of FOS may help increase bone density and protect against osteoporosis. Other benefits noted with FOS supplementation include increased production of beneficial short-chain fatty acids such as butyrate. In addition, the beneficial effects of FOS on the presence of bifidobacteria suggest an improved absorption of vitamins, such as the B complexes.
