From the outside it looks like a radish or sweet potato. It has been regarded as a useful staple food for decades by the natives. The tender tuber flesh is eaten as a vegetable, salad or simply raw. The yacon tuber tastes similar to refreshing sweet honey melon or pear.
Yacon is not regarded as a vegetable but - because of its high levels of sugar – as a fruit. The yacon tuber is also regarded as the "diabetic's potato" due to its blood sugar sinking effects.
Our supplier is a small, certified family business in the Peruvian Andes who cultivates according to biological guidelines. Everything is right here: Tradition, years of experience and devotion to the product which is the success story for first class quality.
The tubers are harvested and sorted directly next to the fields. Only the best tubers come into the baskets and are taken to the production site.
