Yacon root powder provides an amazingly sweet and delicious snack. Our Yacon powders are made from heirloom varieties grown in Peru and are dried using a proprietary low-temperature process to provide the highest nutritional and enzymatic quality.

This versatile superfood simply can’t be beat when you’re looking for a healthy sweet treat. Because the Yacon’s sweetness comes chiefly from fructo – olifosaccharides, compounds which the human body doesn’t absorb, it is a low – calorie and low – glycemic food.

Apart from its high nutrient profile, this plant is also beneficial for people suffering  from medical conditions like obesity, diabetes, hypertension, arthritis, insomnia, and kidney diseases, just to mention a few. As a health food, Yacon is not only effective in improving your overall health but also in maintaining it.
