Now, let’s address some questions you may have about this mysterious sweetener.
What is yacon syrup made of?
The syrup is extracted from the tuberous roots of the yacon plant. Indigenous to the central and northern Andes ranges in South America, the daisy plant is quite popular among people from Bolivia, Brazil and Peru.
In recent times, the plant has also seen the enthusiasm from farmers in Sikkim who cultivate the plant for its incredible ability to replace sugar and be the healthier sweetener we have all been waiting for.

What does yacon syrup taste like?
You could compare the taste of yacon syrup to caramel. But there are reports where people compare it with apples, figs, raisins and molasses. It’s challenging to give the perfect description of its taste, but it certainly does not taste purely sweet, like sugar.
Yacon syrup contains digestible sugars like fructose, glucose and sucrose, which give it the sweet taste and about 20 calories per spoonful of the syrup.
Yacon also contains some indigestible sugars which cannot be absorbed by the gut. This is how the syrup provides roughly one third the amount of calories sugar contains. So it’s a win-win on both sides.

Is yacon syrup good for people with diabetes?
Patients who have diabetes or are at the risk of it may find yacon syrup to be superbly useful. The syrup has been studied to lower blood glucose and reduce insulin resistance. Plus, if you are replacing sugar with the syrup.
But why must its benefits be restricted only to them?
Replacing sugar with any healthy alternatives is a wonderful choice you must make, and this syrup might be your answer.
But beware, don’t start consuming too much Yacon all of a sudden. Experts have set the limit to two teaspoons daily since overconsumption may lead to side effects such as abdominal pain, bloating, diarrhoea or nausea.
When experimenting with a new natural product like yacon, it’s best to do it in small, measurable quantities.
Can you cook with yacon syrup?
Add it to your morning chai or evening coffee or the dessert you couldn’t stop yourself from preparing. Yacon syrup can be used just like sugar, although it may take you some time to adjust to the measurements and using a liquid sweetener as compared to a crystalised or powdered one.
If you are used to cooking with honey, the change is easier. Yacon is about half as sweet as honey, so it’s easier to measure.
