Question:
I want to try yacon syrup because I've heard it is helpful for weight loss, but there are so many brands to choose from. How do I find a quality brand?

Answer:
Yacon syrup, made from the tuberous roots of the yacon plant (Smallanthus sonchifolius), is high in prebiotic soluble fiber and has been promoted as an alternative sweetener and as a weight loss aid. There are some quality concerns about yacon products, however.  To find out more about yacon syrup and yacon root supplements, see the full answer >>
