Benefits of Yacon

What is Yacon?
Yacon is a perennial plant grown for its tuberous roots.
Yacon root is high in fructo-oligosaccharides (FOS), a type of natural sugars found in plants. Yacon FOS is not digested in the gastrointestinal tract and this is why it is low in calories. It is transported to the colon to be fermented by beneficial bacteria (such as Bifidus and Lactobacillus).
