The Matakana Yacon Root Powder offers a natural, healthy and delicious sugar replacement to artificial sweeteners you typically see in supermarkets.
It contains Yacon, a species of perennial daisy that is cultivated and grown primarily in South America, namely Peru, that is low calorie and low GI. Farmers used to plant them along the field borders and use its tubers as refreshments during field work.
This product is rich in fructooligosaccharides (FOS) or oligofructose which is a popular sweetener that originated from Japan and is now recently celebrated for its prebiotic properties.
Fructooligosaccharides is not absorbed into the blood stream but provides essential nutrients to benefit microflora of the large intestine, promotes overall gastrointestinal tract health, calcium absorption and healthy cholesterol levels.
