Yacon Review

Yacon Review Yacon, which is sometimes referred to as "diet potato," is a tuber, whose syrup contains high levels of FOS or fructooligosaccharides. These are carbohydrates that are partially absorbed and prebiotic and in nature that may also have minor appetite suppressing effect in the obese. Some researches claim that Yacon may somehow reduce appetite owing to its anti-motility property. Moreover, a study using rodent subjects have shown that because Yacon can increase mineral uptake from the colon, it may be beneficial for bone health. On the other hand, the tea product from the Yacon leaves serve to be an anti-diabetic agent. However, further studies are required to support this claim and future researches should still be done to know more about Yacon's more potential benefits to the human health. It is also known as Smallanthus sonchifolius, Yacon Syrup, Aicama, Jicama, Diet potato, yacon potato, yacon strawberry.
