Vitacost Yacon Description

Superfood vegetable in easy-to-take supplement form. Standardized for consistent levels of FOS prebiotic fiber in every serving.

  • Traditional South American superfood
  • Tuber—or root vegetable—known for its fiber content
  • Natural source of inulin, a prebiotic
  • 1,000 mg of yacon per two-capsule serving
  • Standardized to 35% fructooligosaccharides (FOS)
  • With an added 70 mg of calcium per serving

Yacon (pronounced yah-cone) is a root vegetable similar in appearance to a potato, with a crisp, juicy texture like an apple or pear and slightly sweet, melon-like flavor. From a plant related to the sunflower, yacon thrives in the mountainous regions of South America, where it’s been a staple part of the diet for centuries. It’s traditionally enjoyed raw, just like fruit, or roasted, baked or added to stir-fry dishes.

 

Yacon is known for being low in calories, supplying minerals such as potassium and calcium, along with inulin—a type of soluble dietary fiber (also found in chicory root) that serves as a prebiotic, or food source for “good” bacteria (probiotics) in the digestive tract.

 

Vitacost® Yacon offers an easy way to obtain the benefits of this nutritious superfood tuber. Each serving delivers 1,000 mg of yacon, standardized to 35% fructooligosaccharides, ensuring consistent levels of FOS in every capsule.

Hidden Gem While looking for a prebiotic, I began realizing that all of them had yakon as the primary ingredient. In fact in most of them it was really the only ingredient aside from fillers. So instead of paying so much for something labeled prebiotic, I just take these...same benefits for a lot less December 31, 2014
No difference Pills were very dry and hard to swallow. Didn't notice any changes and have been taking them for a while. May try the actual syrup, but wouldn't suggest the capsules. June 30, 2014
