Traditional Ethnobotanical Information
This delicious root crop has been grown in the Andes by the Inca and their descendants. Related to sunflowers, Yacon has large succulent roots that have a juicy, watermelon flavor. From this we produce an exceptionally sweet syrup which can be used like honey or maple syrup.
Amazon Therapeutic Laboratories works in conjunction with villages and small research centers in South America for the preservation of rainforest and to uphold the intellectual property rights of native healers and their phyto-medicines. A portion of each purchase helps carry forward a tradition of natural healing and sustainable caretaking of forest habitat.
Ingredients: 100% Yacon (sSmallianthus sonchifolia).
