arrow_forwardORIGINS: Yacon is indigenous to Peru and Bolivia, but is now found globally. Our yacon is grown in the pristine high mountain region of Eastern Nepal, beneath Kanchenjunga, the world’s third highest mountain, where the air and water are exceptionally pure, and the soil is deep, rich and fertile. This makes Global Family Farms Yacon Syrup nutrient dense and delicious, with a fruity, wholesome flavor.
arrow_forwardPRODUCTION: Mineral-rich juice is extracted from yacon tubers and gently heated to yield golden-brown syrup. Family farmers, especially women, cultivate the yacon as a special cash crop to help dress and feed the family. See our Nutrition Facts for the mineral content of this Himalayan Yacon, processed carefully to preserve high levels of FOS. Our Yacon Syrup is ultra-pure, safe and healthy, USDA organic, and Non-GMO project verified.
arrow_forwardWHAT IS FOS? Yacon is naturally high in FOS, fructo-oligosaccharides. a class of sugars contributing sweetness, but not digested by our enzyme pathways, so not absorbed as calories. Instead, FOS nourishes beneficial bacteria in our large intestine, the microbiome, to create healthy balance in the gut and improve digestion. FOS even helps absorption of minerals, including calcium.
arrow_forwardWHY LOW GLYCEMIC? Glycemic index measures how fast the body breaks down different carbohydrates. Slower is better, and yacon is the winner as a healthy, low impact sweetener, that does not spike blood sugar, effortlessly supports weight loss, and may even be tolerated by those with sugar sensitivities (discuss with your doctor).
arrow_forwardDELICIOUS, NUTRITIOUS, EASY TO USE: Shake the bottle well before using, as there is a fine, soluble, but beneficial fiber that may rise to the top. Once shaken, it will stay mixed. Use Global Family Farms Yacon Syrup wherever you would use other sweeteners, and in cooking and baking. It will be lower in calories, higher in minerals, improve digestion, and support weight loss. We suggest not more than 3 tsp a day at first, as the prebiotic may stimulate digestion and elimination as flora balance.
