Yacon is found in a plant that is grown in South America and the largest concentration is found in the roots. The leaves of the plant also contain some of the residue but not concrete enough to extract. The leaves also contain some toxins that are dangerous to human health and are not advisable to use. That is why the roots are the most used in extracting of the yacon syrup.
Some people also prefer to use the roots raw by creating potato chips which will also work effectively. Whichever way you would like it is an individual’s decision. Some people also have the option of using it as a powder which is also okay as long as you gain the most useful ingredient in the yacon.
Yacon syrup contains an ingredient that is known as FOS which stands for fructooligosaccharide which is the most effective substance in the syrup. It kind of sounds like a complicated scientific name but it is the substance that assists in weight loss and improving of the digestive system.
Yacon has also been found in some fruits and vegetables but in some considerable amount. These can be in bananas, onions and garlic, artichokes and asparagus.
The yacon syrup has gone so much viral and is the most preferred method of ingesting of yacon. It is advisable to use the yacon syrup an hour or two before taking a meal though some scientists also argue that it is better to have it with a meal to improve on intake. Any method is allowed if you get your FOS.
