Navitas Naturals Yacon Slices are made from an ancient South American tuber that tastes more like a fruit than a root. Yacon has a reputation for being one of the healthiest sweeteners due to its high content of inulin, which has a low glycemic impact and provides healthy probiotics. Chewy dried Yacon Slices taste a bit like a delicious, exotic apple. Eat these slices straight out of the bag for a sweet and satisfying treat or add them to cereal, oatmeal, baked goods and salads.
Although yacon tastes sweet, the sugars from the inulin are not actually digestible and simply pass through the body. Therefore, yacon only contains about half the calories of an average sugar source.
As a valuable health food and an effective alternative sweetener, yacon's greatest attribute is its naturally high content of inulin, a complex sugar that breaks down slowly into the sweet tasting but low-sugar fructooligosaccharides (FOS). Yacon also provides 20 amino acids, potassium, calcium, phosphorous and iron.
