Yacon Syrup Recipes
You can use yacon syrup like any other liquid sweetener in a recipe. You can add it to anything in place of honey, sugar, agave syrup. Use it in desserts, drinks, salad dressings or baking! Satisfy your sweet tooth without harming yourself. It is low in calories compared to sugar (approximately half the calories).
Yacon syrup is a healthy sweetener because it doesn’t spike your blood sugar like sugar or corn syrup. It also doesn’t feed candida or upset the intestinal ecology. Guilt free pleasure! The sweetness is found in a complex sugar called inulin. Inulin breaks down slowly into fructooligosaccharides (FOS) which won’t upset digestion or blood sugar. This enjoyable sweetener has been used for thousands of years by South American cultures.
