True Sol -100% Pure Yacon Syrup
I have some potential health problems, and what I mean by potential is that doctors tell me I'm "borderline" on several things. One of those things include my blood sugar which will lead to diabetes.
Before this review I had never heard of Yacon syrup, so before I agreed to do this review I looked it up. It was amazing what people were saying about this stuff and what it did for them!
After reading about it I was excited to try it out!
This Yacon syrup is by True Sol. It's 100% pure and the taste is like molasses. I personally like it. Sweet but not to over the top sweet. And it's a natural sweet, not like it's loaded with refined sugars. Since it's suggested to take a teaspoon every morning, I try and do it as one of the first things in the morning. I also always try to drink a glass of water in the morning as well and tend to do these at the same time.
I have been taking these for a couple of weeks now and I do seem to have more energy. I honestly don't know if it's helping my blood sugar or not- I hate checking it. I hate having sore fingers all the time. And no matter how often I do it my fingers can never seem to adapt and adjust.
But with three kids, a remodel going on, a photography business, and 3 dogs..... I could use all the energy I can wrangle up!
I also am working to lose 50 pounds - it's the last of the weight I gained through out having my three kids. I don't think I have been taking this long enough to say if it is helping me with my weight loss or not. I do exercise and although the scale hasn't been going down I have went down a couple of pants sizes, before I started taking Yacon. But if it helps I'm not going to complain! HA HA
I found this information about Yacon at Yacon Facts:
Yacon Syrup Nutritional Information
First of all, let’s talk a little bit about where yacon syrup comes from. Yacon is a root crop commonly grown in Peru and the Andes of South America. Yacon is a distant relative of the sunflower and artichoke family. However, yacon is not grown for its seeds or flower, rather it is grown for its naturally sweet but low-calorie edible roots.
Among other root crops, yacon’s calorie content is the lowest at 54 calories–which is over two times lower than a sweet potato (123 calories) and less than a potato (77 calories)! Because of this, yacon is a suitable nutritious diet food.
The Yacon Tuber contains:
Traces of phosphorus (22%),
And also essential elements like iron, calcium, sodium, potassium, carotene, magnesium, and Vitamins A, B1, B2, and C.
Yacon Syrup Glycemic Index
Taking after yacon, the yacon syrup glycemic index is low, only 1!
How does that compare with with other popular sweeteners? Let’s see.

Out of all the sugars, yacon syrup scores best in the glycemic index for sweeteners that are sugar based. Its sweetness comes from fructooligosaccharides (a type of sugar with a very low glycemic index), which makes it essentially the only raw, natural, low-calorie and low-glycemic sweeter available.
