Yacon is a perfect low glycemic sweetener, with a remarkable glycemic index of 1.

Yacon contains probiotics, the good bacteria that occur naturally in our intestines and keep bodily balance in check.

Yacon contains non-glycemic carbohydrates, which are a good energy source for diabetics because of their reduced effect on blood sugar levels.

Healthy microflora in the large intestine use prebiotics as food, and yacon is just such a prebiotic. It supports gastrointestinal tract health and populates it with ‘friendly bacteria’.

Combined with soluble fiber, yacon can make you feel fuller while you eat, which can help with weight loss. It’s slows absorption of sugars into the blood stream.


Does this help with rheumatoid arthritist?


No, yacon syrup is not known to treat rheumatoid arthritis. This is because the yacon plant does not carry anti-inflammatory properties. However, yacon syrup is a great sweetner alternative because of its low glycemic index, making it a very diabetic-friendly. Yacon syrup is also high in fiber and probiotics. With regular consumption, the syrup can aid in weight-loss and helps regulate a healthy gut, which in turn boosts immunity. 

Some anti-inflammatory foods we provide, such as lucuma, camu-camu, and purple corn, can help with rheumatoid arthritist. These foods carry anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. 

For instance, the purple pigment of purple corn owes it's deep hues to anthocyanins. Anthocyanins have been shown to decrease inflammatory response of inflammation-causing diseases, such as rheumatoid arthritis. 

Because camu-camu is also an anti-inflammatory agent, it too has been used to manage the pain in disorders like rheumatoid arthritis.
