100% Pure Raw Organic Yacon Root Syrup 8 oz. ,
Low Calorie Sweetener. Certified Organic.
50% FOS, Prebiotics, Metabolism Boost

My thoughts on the product: When given the opportunity to try Yacon Syrup for myself, I investigated it to see what could be found about it online prior to agreeing to participate. Once I convinced myself that it would not be harmful and would perhaps be beneficial, I decided to request my bottle.  I have now used it for over a week. These are my findings….
  1. I have not used it as a sweetener for beverages as I am partial to the way I now prepare my beverages and the sweeteners I use.
  2. I have not used it as a syrup to apply to pancakes, etc., because I rarely eat them.
  3. I have ingested one teaspoon twice a day prior to or following a meal (usually lunch and dinner). This is following the company's recommendation.

My Results:

  1. I may have lost one to two pounds, although this may be noticeable due to normal fluctuation in weight. The jury is still out, but I am hoping and perhaps this will be a real plus to using Yacon Syrup.
  2. I have noticed a slight laxative effect thought it does not cause a problem. I have not sensed gastric difficulties using the syrup.
  3. I found the taste to be similar to molasses or old fashioned cane syrup. In other words it is sort of thick but pours. I may eventually try it in my morning coffee. We shall see.
I am glad to have participated in reviewing this product and deem it worth anyone trying to see if it would be beneficial themselves.
