What is Yacon Syrup?
Yacon Syrup originates from the Yacon plant (pronounced yah-KON) of the Andes Mountains in Peru and has been part of the Andean diet for hundreds of years. The yacon juices are extracted from the roots of the yacon plant, then filtered and evaporated in a process very similar to the way Maple syrup is made.
The Yacon plant looks similiar to a sweet potato. Here, the yacon plant is pictured in its original form before being distilled into syrup for consumption.
How Does It Help with Weight Loss?
Yacons contain a high level of fructooligosaccharides, which are natural sugars commonly found in plants. The body resists the process to breakdown these sugars by enzymes during digestion and passes them through the body quickly without retaining the full caloric intake. Because the sugar in Yacon Syrup isn’t digested like normal foods, you can enjoy sweetness without the calories.
SCIENTIFIC STUDY-published in Clinical Nutrition Journal:
Obese and slightly dyslipidemic pre-menopausal women were studied over a 120-day period in a double-blind placebo-controlled experiment. Two doses of yacon syrup were used, 0.29g and 0.14g fructooligosaccharides/kg/day.
At the start and end of the study, anthropometric measurements, blood glucose, calcium, lipid and insulin concentrations and Homeostasis Model Assessment index were determined.
The recommended daily consumption of yacon syrup with no undesirable gastrointestinal effects is 0.14g fructooligosaccharides/kg.
Daily intake of yacon syrup produced a significant decrease in body weight, waist circumference and body mass index over the 120 day period.
Yacon syrup is a good source of fructooligosaccharides and its long-term consumption produced beneficial health effects on obese pre-menopausal women with insulin resistance.
