"The great thing about FOS is, they’re naturally sweet, but we don’t absorb them so they don’t make us fat or cause sugar spikes. The best news is they feed and encourage our ‘good’ gut microbes – unlike artificial sweeteners, which actually promote harmful microbes"
A great source of FOS is pure organic yacón syrup available from YaconViva. It can be used as a sweetener in drinks, in baking, in deserts or anywhere else where you need added sweetness. Much better for you than artificial sweeteners.
But the product I really love is Yaconviva Cacao Nibs – all organic and a really yummy snack. They only contain yacón syrup and cacao nibs, so are vegan, dairy-free and gluten-free, plus they’re packed-full of antioxidants and contain natural caffeine."
