Fructo-oligosaccharides (FOS) are composed of short-chain carbohydrates of fructose.  Yacón syrup is composed of FOS, inulin, and a small amount of glucose and fructose.

Inside and Out

Yacón syrup has a nice caramel taste with a look similar to molasses.  It’s inulin, FOS, is an indigestible sugar.  They go to our large intestine, where they are fermented by the good bacteria in your gut.  This process produces short-chain fatty acids that keep the lining of our gut healthy.  Since FOS is not digested, it doesn’t cause a spike in blood sugar.

Put it to Good Use

Yacón syrup is about 40% as sweet as table sugar.  You may need to use this sweetener in conjunction with another sweetener.  You can use it in coffee or tea, yogurt, smoothies, salad dressings, and for baking.
