TrueSol Yacon Syrup Review
My review: Yacon syrup contains ingredients that naturally lower blood sugar, and it can be used as a substitute for high-calorie or high-glycemic sweeteners such as sugar or maple syrup as well. The bottle recommends taking this as a supplement for weight loss by the spoonful, like medicine, but personally I wouldn't recommend that because it doesn't taste that great by itself. It's not entirely unpleasant, but it's kind of a stale-sweet, starchy flavor that's the same texture as corn syrup; I would not find myself craving this stuff by the spoonful.
Instead, I use it to sweeten foods that I normally add sugar or honey to, such as teas, nut butters, and baking recipes. This is an excellent sugar and honey substitute, with less calories, and a lot more fiber! I'm a huge health foodie, and am always looking for healthier alternatives to my favorite foods and ingredients. While yacon syrup's taste is far from regular honey or sugar/stevia, it's virtually tasteless with a hint of sweetness that will let you have the same sweetness in foods without sacrificing your waist line.
