I keep coming across recipes requiring yacon syrup. Does anyone know anything about it? A bit of a browse on google suggests that it doesn’t have the problem of agave syrup, which is high in fructose, and also that it supports good intestinal flora and the growth of friendly bacteria.
I’m wondering if this would be possible to use on the diet, or at least something to look forward to later on? I can’t tolerate stevia, so it would be wonderful to have an alternative!May 8, 2012 at 1:29 pm #81270

The type of sugar which makes yacon syrup sweet is called Fructooligosacharide; here on the forum we refer to it as FOS. It’s actually a prebiotic capable of feeding the beneficial bacteria. This may be a good idea if it doesn’t cause any adverse reactions. Testing is the only way to know for sure.
