Amazon Therapeutic Laboratories Organic Yacon Syrup - 11.5 oz.
Amazon Therapeutic Laboratories Organic Yacon Syrup can be used like honey or maple syrup. The Inca have grown Yacon root (smallanthus sonchifolius) for generations. This nutritious root is cooked down to form their organic syrup which can replace honey or maple syrup. Yacon contains fructooligosaccharaides (FOS), which cannot be metabolized in the human body. This means Yacon does not raise blood glucose levels and is safe as a replacement sweetener for diabetics or others wishing to avoid sugar. FOS also feeds the "beneficial bacteria" naturally occurring in the large intestine. This means Yacon can improve overall digestion, as well as aid in detoxification and increase mineral absorbtion...
But, most importantly, Yacon syrup is delicious!
Amazon Therapeutic Labs
Amazon Therapeutic Laboratories originally came about as a collaboration between Jerome Black, Tom Baldwin, and Shannon Casey- 2 of his long term customers from the early days of the Oregon Exotics Fruit Nursery.
Residing on the big island of Hawaii, Tom and Shannon have since founded and manage a botanical sanctuary of their own known as ULUWEHI FARM & NURSERY, which features several acres of intensively cultivated tropical plants including hard to find Amazon medicinal and wild fruits in order to supply voucher samples for our laboratories. Tom works with the living botanical germplasm of numerous tropical species and Shannon is a trained geneticist familiar with both temperate and tropical genetics.
Their experience with permaculture enables ATL to plan education seminars directly in the Amazon basin and other tropical regions. Together they are developing protocols for sustainable permaculture designs of tropical plant species for food, fiber, and medicines. Tom and Shannon's participation ensures that ATL maintains an ethical approach to plant harvesting and sustainable organic cultivation. Favored by top herbalists, practitioners, and retail stores who require quality, these are certified organic products of high integrity.]
