Living Roots Farm and Sustainable Living Center

Yacon (~2 lbs)

Fruits & Vegetables: Fresh, No Herbicide, No Pesticide, No Synthetic Fertilizer, Non-GMO, Roots & Tubers

A Peruvian tuber that has started to recently become more popular in this country. Looks like a sweet potato but tastes like a cross between a Pear, Sunchoke, and a Potato. It’s sweet but the body does not absorb the sugar in the same way as other sugars, making it a great choice for diabetics. Yacon also contains a high level of prebiotics, which promote the growth of beneficial microorganisms in the gut. It is also a low calorie food. Great raw or in salads or cooked. Chemical-Free! Grown by one of the leading chemical-free vegetable farms in Indiana. More info about Living Roots Farm at: livingroots.orgUSA / IN / Orange County
