Organic Yacon Root Powder Description:
About Our Organic Yacon Root Powder:
Yacon is a fruit-like tuber root vegetable native to South America. It is known for its
delicate and distinctive sweet flavor, but contains about half the calories of an average
sugar source. Yacon is high in fiber and works as a prebiotic so it is exceptionally good
for digestive health. Our yacon root is harvested from small organic farms in Peru and
dried a low temperatures capture the delicate flavor. It can be used as an alternative in
any recipe or smoothie that calls for added sweetness and a great addition to chocolate.

I wish they could crystalize the syrup somehow but alas that isn’t available. The powder has a slightly sweet slightly tangy flavor but won’t add much sweetness. The fructooligosaccharides (FOS) are broken down at temperatures over 248F and the FOS is why Yacon is touted as a healthy alternative to sugar. Without the FOS Yacon cannot be considered to have any beneficial effect as a prebiotic or a sugar substitute, so it really isn’t suitable for most baking applications either.
Therefore in my opinion there is no reason to use the powdered Yacon over the syrup as the powdered Yacon is barely sweet and chalky and the syrup is delicious.

I can’t really recommend the Yacon powder for anything. There is no application that I can think of where Yacon powder would be a successful sugar substitute.
He would like the availabilty of a larger package.
