Just the right amount of half honey and half caramel sweetness! I first heard about this from Dr. Greger's book "How not to diet". It supposedly contains fructans that feeds the the good gut bacteria. In fact, Yacon syrup is a concentrated prebiotic source and your tiny gut helpers absolutely love and adore this stuff. It's only 1/3 the calories of honey and the sugars are mostly in the form of these fructans that our bodies can't digest but our friendly flora can! Everyone benefits here. Win-win. I add a tablespoon to morning oats and it's very delicious I tell you. Take care and feed those gut helpers, and they will in return take care of you! They will help you make informed decisions by honing not only your gut instincts; but also, keeping your immunity sky high for great health!
