Yacon Syrup Review

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.
Life Food Pro's Yacon Syrup is 100% pure, raw, and organic. It is nonGMO, made in the USA, and retails for $19.99 for one 8oz bottle. 
Our Yacon (Smallanthus sonchifolius) Syrup is sourced from naturally grown organic Yacon fields in the country of Peru. We use the HIGHEST quality Yacon plant to make a premium pure syrup formula.
  • 100% pure Yacon syrup has shown to assist in weight management, increase fiber intake and promotes good bowel function.
  • Other benefits include: Lowers blood sugar. Prevents and controls hyperglycemia (over activity). Restores renal activity. Is a powerful Antioxidant.
Yacon syrup has shown to remains low in calories and low on the glycemic index scale. This is due to the fact that the sugar contains high levels of oligofructose (inulin), a form of sugar that is not metabolized readily by the human body. For this reason, Yacon is ideal for diabetics and acts as a great alternative to conventional low calorie sweeteners.
  • High in prebiotics and probiotics, this syrup contains up to 50% of FOS (fructooligosacharides). It has been found that consumption of FOS does not increase blood glucose, and helps boost your bodies metabolism.
  • Naturally grown and sourced from the fields in Peru. Organic certified by our manufacturing specialists.
  • 100% pure raw organic syrup formula with no added preservatives. Bottled and tested in a FDA certified GMP facility in the USA.
  • Yacon Syrup is a perfect sweetener for coffee, tea, other beverages or can be used while baking! I love using this low-glycemic, low-calorie sweetener as a replacement to sugar, agave, honey, and artificial sweeteners!
  • I personally love adding a bit of Yacon Syrup to my cup of tea! I have also been adding some fresh herbs from my organic garden like chocolate-mint and lemon balm for a lovely, fresh flavor!
  • I have also added Yacon Syrup to my homemade chia pudding! 

  • {Cacao/PeanutButter} CHIA PUDDING RECIPE:
  • 1/4c chia seeds
  • 3/4c milk of choice
  • 1tbsp Yacon Syrup
  • 1tbsp cacao powder
  • 2tbsp natural peanut butter
  • 3 dates
  • {combine all ingredients in a food processor and pour in a glass. Refrigerate for at least one hour}
  • You can also add cacao nibs, coconut, fresh fruit… the possibilities are endless! ENJOY! 

  • Yacon Syrup has a wide variety of uses. You can sweeten up your coffee or tea, use it in baking, cooking, and as a replacement of sugar! It's great for those with diabetes because of its low glycemic index and ideal for those watching their weight as it is low in calories and assists in weight management. I would definitely recommend Yacon Syrup to those looking for an organic, natural sweetener!


I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
