My review: Yacon syrup is a no-calorie sweetener that could serve as a honey, maple syrup, or sugar alternative.
It smells and looks like molasses, but I would say it's far less sweet in its pure form. I would not use this to drizzle over my pancakes or waffles, because it's not that kind of sweet, and it has a bit of a pungent earthy flavor to it. However, it's an absolute lifesaver for baking! If you're a health foodie like me, or just want to cut calories in baked goods, use yacon syrup to substitute for sugar or honey. I almost always bake with honey or maple syrup, and replace about half of the amount the recipe calls for, with yacon. Best of all, it's all-natural and vegan, so you can eat this on any diet.
True Synergy provides a high-quality syrup in an easy-pour bottle. This stuff is 100% pure so you know you have no added sugars or fillers here.
