Raw Organic Vegan Yacon

The perennial plant, Yacon, is native in Andean region. Its crisp and sweet-tasting tuberous root has great values. It has the taste between apple and watermelon. Thus, its nickname is "apple of the earth". The most content of Yacon is water and fructo-oligosaccharides. Because Yacon's sweetness comes from inulin, an indigestible sugar, Yacon root tastes sweet. Thus, there are fewer calories in Yacon roots compared with equally sweet things.

Yacon plants can be over 2 meters high. At the end of the growing season, small, yellow inconspicuous flowers will be born. The yacon is not photoperiod sensitive an can have a commercial yield in the tropics. But other root vegetables domesticate by the Inca does not have this advantage.

There are two types of Yacon roots: propagation roots, and storage roots. Under the soil surface, there is a propagation root and the new growing points produced by Propagation roots will become next year's aerial parts. Storage roots are large and edible.

Yacon products have been welcomed in the US and European market as nutritional great foods. For more information, you can visit our Yacon Syrup and Yacon RootPowder page.
