Introducing a rare Australian source of this delicious, multifunctional, organic sweetener. A teaspoon in your coffee, on your cereal or drizzled onto pancakes provides a sweet treat with none of the negatives.

In fact, the benefits are really something special. Where else can you boost gut health, suppress appetite, ensure regularity and provide an impressive antioxidant and amino acid boost with something that tastes so good?

Sweet Health Yacon Syrup, from Nutrition Farms, is a super concentrate where 3.3 kg of yacons (the Peruvian earth apple) are required to produce just 200 ml of this sweet treat.

The sweet, caramel-like syrup contains up to 50% of the powerhouse prebiotic, fructooligosaccharides. This low GI sweetener has no effect on raising blood glucose levels, making it the perfect sugar substitute for pre-diabetics and those with Type 2 diabetes.

Here are six reasons to include Sweet Health in your diet:

1. The highest source of prebiotics - these are substances that boost beneficial gut organisms, which are now thought to be at least as important as probiotics. Yacons are considered among the most powerful prebiotic foods as they contain exceptional levels of fructooligosaccharides (FOS) and inulin.

2. A proven weight loss tool - these tasty treats are often called the "diet potato" due to their capacity to shut down the hunger hormone, ghrelin, thereby suppressing the appetite. In published research by Genta et al., it was shown that a daily intake of yacón syrup produced a significant decrease in body weight, waist circumference and body mass index in a study involving overweight pre-menopausal women.

3. Helps counter constipation - yacons are packed with both soluble and insoluble fibre, so important for bowel health.

4. Lowers cholesterol and triglycerides - the concentrate from this unique root vegetable helps restore lipid balance to avoid the health consequences associated with excesses of these fats.

5. Rich in protective antioxidants - yacon syrup is a concentrated source of polyphenols and flavonoids, including resveratrol and chlorogenic acid.

6. A concentrated source of Tryptophan - this supportive amino acid is the building block for both serotonin and melatonin. Tryptophan has outperformed antidepressants in some studies.

    The term “superfood” is widely used and abused, but Sweet Health Yacon syrup must surely deserve this often-misused moniker.
