View Full Version : Yacon Syrup
12-01-2006, 05:58 PM
Does anyone know much about this? I have researched it a bit and it sounds like great stuff - zero on the glycemic index, good for diabetics, good minerals, etc. It sounds like it is raw, depending on the manufacturer. I haven't found it in many places besides Natural Zing.
Any experiences or thoughts?

I saw raw yacon syrup in the raw section of my grocery store today (a VERY special grocery store, indeed). I wondered about it too! Would love to know.

Hi Cindy -
can you tell me what store it is and what brand of the syrup (next time you go if you don't know now)?

I am interested if someone can compare it with the best quality agavesyrup,
on the subjects of taste, price and glycemic index

I like yacon syrup. It's best as a substitute for maple syrup. It has a light molasses flavor, but it is darker and richer than agave, which is lighter tasting.
I'd use agave as a honey substitute, a corn syrup substitute or otherwise light or white sugar substitute. I'd use the Yacon to substitute for brown sugar, maple, or light molasses.

I don't know the brand name. However the store I shop at is Rainbow Grocery in San Francisco. It is an amazing, huge store that carries no meat. It has a fantastic organic produce department and almost every raw item you could want. I love it!

Thanks Cindy -
I am familiar with Rainbow and will check it out next time I am in the area.
