    Sunfood Superfoods Sweet Yacon Syrup Organic - 8 oz. (236ml)

    Sunfood Superfoods Sweet Yacon Syrup Organic is a shocking discovery! The best low-glycemic sweetener ever has been found!  Imagine a certified organic, low-calorie sweetener that doesn't raise your blood sugar and supports immunity and healthy digestion.  Move over stevia and agave!  Here comes Nature's healthiest sweetener Yacon Root Syrup!  Fresh pressed from the Yacon root (Smallanthus sonchifolius), this syrup is a gift from nature that has been enjoyed for centuries in the Andean highlands of Peru.

    Though packed with sweetness, the sugar in Yacon is mainly fructooligosaccharide, which cannot be absorbed by the body. This means Yacon is both naturally low-calorie and low in mono and disaccharides (less than 1 gram per serving of the sugars that rapidly elevate blood sugar levels). Yacon root syrup has little influence on the glucose tolerance curve and is dramatically less glycemic than honey, agave, or maple syrup.  Yacon is a distant relative of the sunflower with edible tubers and leaves. It is commonly grown and consumed from Columbia to northwest Argentina. Yacon roots contain important quantities of potassium and antioxidants.

    Because of its sweet taste, Yacon roots are eaten like fruit in South America. The Yacon root is considered the world's richest natural source of FOS (Fructo-oligosaccharides). Most other roots and tubers store carbohydrates as starch a polymer chain of glucose. Yacon stores carbohydrate as FOS a polymer chain composed mainly of fructose. This FOS can be considered a subgroup of inulin because it has a similar molecular structure, but with shorter fructose chains.

    Tests were conducted at the Universidad Nacional Mayor de San Marcos in Peru in July 2004 to test how Yacon syrup affected blood glucose levels. The participants were 60 non-diabetic men and women between the ages of 20 and 60. Each group fasted for at least eight hours before ingesting the different sweeteners. Three groups were given different samples of Yacon, one group was given bees honey, another group was given maple syrup, and the last was given anhydrous glucose. The group ingesting Yacon syrup had hardly any difference from before and after. The results showed that Yacon had very little effect on glucose levels, while the other sweeteners showed a significant rise in glucose levels and a slow decline back to normal.

    More on How Yacon Syrup Works: 
    Their Yacon syrup contains approximately 30% FOS and low proportions of simple sugars (e.g., glucose, fructose, and sucrose). The human body has no enzyme to hydrolyze FOS, so (even though it tastes sweet) it passes through the digestive tract unmetabolized, providing few calories. Yacon also acts as a prebiotic. The undigested portion of Yacon serves as food for "friendly" bacteria, such as Bifidobacterium and Lactobacillus species, in the small intestines and the colon. Clinical studies have shown that administering FOS can increase the number of these friendly bacteria in the colon while simultaneously reducing the population of harmful bacteria. Other benefits noted with FOS supplementation include increased production of beneficial short-chain fatty acids such as butyrate, increased absorption of calcium and magnesium, and improved elimination of toxic compounds. Preclinical studies indicate an increase in bone density after consumption of FOS. In addition, the beneficial effects of FOS on the presence of Bifidobacterium suggest an improved absorption of vitamins, such as those in the B complex.

    The Sunfood Story
    Years ago, a group of health minded individuals noticed an alarming trend in their towns and communities. They saw friends and family eating and drinking dead, processed foods full of chemicals. They knew that this was the path to obesity and disease, ultimately leading to western medicine's suppression of symptoms with drugs and scalpels. This is not true healing.

    Sunfood was born from their desire to create an alternative path to health. They believe that the secrets to health, energy and long life are found in nature through diet and nutrition. Building upon the wisdom of traditional and modern natural healing methods from all over the world, they are here to share powerful information and superfoods that help people heal and rejuvenate themselves naturally.

    It is their quest to find the most nutrient dense, raw, organic, Non-GMO superfoods on the planet. Their search to uncover ancient and modern healing knowledge lost to our society has taken us all over the world, from the tropical regions of South America to the high mountains of Tibet.

    Their family-operated business is located in San Diego, where they prepare superfoods in our certified organic facility and package them for you with care. They are passionate about empowering their Sunfood family through education, from their superfood specialists on the phones, to their newsletters filled with the latest health information, to recipes made with love from their kitchen to yours.

    For me this product has not helped me loose weight as was talked about. It is a sweetener that is from a good source, but expensive. Perhaps people who have a lot of weight to loose will benefit from it.

    Tastes like the Yacon syrup I had bought previous to Dr. Oz creating a run on the product. However, it is thinner and less sweet than my earlier purchase. My guess is that it is being mixed with water to make the manufacturer's supply go further. With this in mind, I can't really recommend it.
