Organic Yacon: a versatile healthy root vegetable

Newsletter (33)

 

Hello, my name is Frank and we grow organic Yacon for Nature & More in The Netherlands. I would like to share some interesting facts with you about Yacon: 

  • Yacon is a versatile root vegetable, also known as ‘ground apple’. It's very healthy.
  • The taste is fresh, sweet and lies between an apple, pear and watermelon
  • Can be eaten raw, with a crunchy bite
  • Use Yacon in stir-fry, boil or fry it in thin slices as a tasty snack. Delicious in stews, salads, desserts and cakes. It is also used to make syrup.
  • Sweet taste due to oligofructose (fracto-oligosaccharide), which stimulates the beneficial bacteria in our body
  • The sweet taste is partly caused by inulin. Because inulin is poorly absorbed by the human body, Yacon may have a beneficial effect against obesity and diabetes
  • The plant originates from the Andes and grows there at an altitude of 900-3000m
  • 100% vegan ;) !
