I got to know this plant on holiday in Peru and immediately fell in love with the taste. Afterwards, I searched in vain for a yacon product in our region and recently came across this powder. You can tell directly from the taste that it is a high-quality natural product – great in a smoothie!
For me, yacon powder has become an integral part of my diet. Since I started with the Amazonas Natural Products brand and am totally satisfied with it, I can't say whether other brands are as good or better. I am happy in any case ;)
A food which states "high fibre" must have a minimum 6 g fibre in 100 g or 3 g per 100 kcal (VO(EG) Attachment Nr. 1924/2006).
Our Yacon powder contains 12 g in 100 g.
Why are indigestible carbohydrates so important?
Carbohydrates have different effects on the blood sugar levels. This effect is measured by the glycemic index chain. Easily digested carbohydrates are right at the top of the list. Sugar belongs to one of these. Straight after ingesting sugar there is a sharp rise in the blood sugar levels which creates a short boost in energy. Carbohydrates from beans and whole grain cereal are at the bottom of the list, including inulin.
