Navitas Naturals Yacon Power Yacon Powder - 8 oz.

Navitas NaturalsYacon Power Yacon Powder is a widely enjoyed South American tuber. It has a long-standing reputation for being a superfood due to is winning combination of sweet taste and healthy benefits. As a wonderful alternative sweetener, yacon contains high amounts of naturally occurring inulin – a type of sugar that is indigestible by the body. Because of its inulin, yacon contains about half the calories of other types of sweeteners, and is a good option for diabetics. This powder form of the yacon root is ideal for healthy baking, or as a sweet and nutritious bonus to your power breakfast.

Source and Processing
Navitas Naturals Yacon is grown in the Oxapampa region of the Peruvian Andes. After harvest, the yacon roots are washed, peeled, and run through a slicing machine. They are then dehydrated at low temperatures to preserve the nutrients, pulverized, and milled to form a fine powder. This product contains 100% pure yacon powder that is certified organic, raw, kosher, gluten-free, and vegan.

Yacon (ya-kon) a large, crisp tuber, which serves as the root for the perennial yacon plant of the Asteraceae family.

Apple of the Earth
Beneath a sprawling, untidy South American plant, lays a powerful health food: the mighty yacon. Often coined the “apple of the earth” due to its inherent sweet and juicy crunch, yacon is extensively used in its native habitats as both a delicious food and an effective treatment for various ailments. While wonderful eaten fresh, this mellow root also possesses a delicate sweetness that can be extracted and used as a healthy sugar substitute.

The Power of Yacon
A valuable health food and alternative sweetener, yacon’s greatest attribute is its naturally high content of inulin, a complex sugar that breaks down slowly into fructooligosaccharides (FOS). The high levels of FOS is a quality that is beneficial for two reasons. First, although yacon tastes sweet, the sugar of inulin is not digestible and simply passes through the body. Therefore yacon only contains about half the calories of an average sugar source. Secondly, FOS promotes the production of healthy probiotics within the body, which can contribute to better digestion and colon health.

The Sweetness of Health
Living up to its “apple of the earth” nickname, dried yacon slices have a taste and texture similar to dried apple slices. They make a special condiment when added to salads and are a fresh and new type of snack. The syrup of the yacon has a similar flavor to molasses, and is incredible when used in sweet treats, smoothies, or drizzled on top of starchy root vegetables. The powder also sweetens recipes, and is perfect when incorporated into dry or baked goods. Whatever form it’s used in, yacon is an exciting way to add a little more sweetness to your diet, without raising blood sugars or adding a high amount of calories.

DID YOU KNOW?
Cultivation of yacon began as long ago as 1200 B.C.! For generations, this tuber has been consumed to strengthen the immune system and improve the quality of life for those suffering from chronic liver disease, kidney ailments and diabetic symptoms. Indigenous Andeans still use yacon leaves extensively in folk medicine to brew teas that aid in lowering blood sugar.

About Navitas Naturals

Navitas is the Latin Word for Energy
Navitas Naturals was founded in 2003 to bring energizing superfoods to North America to invigorate the modern ‘Western’ diet. Our organic superfoods come from ancient cultures around the world where they are traditionally used for both nutritional and medicinal purposes. Health-conscious people choose our nutrient-dense superfoods because they are an abundant whole-food source of antioxidants, protein, essential fats, vitamins, minerals and other key nutrients.

Pure & Simple
Nutrient-rich whole foods are at their best when they’re produced by organic agriculture and minimal processing. That’s why all our products are certified organic and use methods such as freeze-drying and low temperature processing to ensure maximum nutrition and flavor.

What is a Superfood?
A superfood is a nutrient-dense fruit or vegetable that contains a high content of antioxidants, protein, omega-3, minerals, fiber or other essential nutrients that have proven health benefits. Nutrient density is the ratio of calories to micronutrients – the vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and phytochemicals that are essential to health, wellness and feeling great. Nutrient-dense foods, like most vegetables and fruits, have a high amount of valuable micronutrients and a low amount of calories. To protect the ‘super’ quality and nutrient integrity, a superfood must be certified organic and minimally processed.
