Description

Yacon Syrup 500ml
Yacon is a perennial plant in Andean region. It is cultivated and grown for the crisp and sweet-tasting tuberous root. It tastes like cross between apple and watermelon. Therefore it has a nickname "apple of the earth". The content of yacon root is mostly water and fructo-oligosaccharides. Although Yacon root tastes sweet, its sweetness come from inulin, which is an indigestible sugar. So yacon roots contain fewer calories than other equally sweet things.
Yacon plants can grow to over 2 meters in height and produce small, yellow inconspicuous flowers at the end of the growing season. Unlike many other root vegetables domesticates by the Inca, the yacon is not photoperiod sensitive, and can produce a commercial yield in the tropics.
Yacon developes two types of roots: propagation roots, and storage roots. Propagation roots grow just under the soil surface and produce new growing points that will become next year’s aerial parts. Storage roots are large and edible.
 Please note that Yacon is currently classified as novel food under EU regulation. Therefore we are not selling this product for human consumption
