Your probably wondering what Yacon Syrup is.  To be honest, I had no idea either, until I did some research.  I found out that Yacon Syrup is a sweetening agent extracted from the tuberous root of the yacon plant which is found in the Andes Mountains. Yacon was also used by the Incas. In Peru, people eat yacón because of its nutritional properties—few calories and low sugar levels. In Bolivia, yacón roots are eaten by people with diabetes or other digestive and renal disorders. In Brazil, the dried leaves are used to make yacón tea, said to be anti-diabetic.  Another study states that pre-menopausal women can lose weight using Yacon Syrup.
My brother is diabetic and over weight so I've had him using this syrup for a few weeks to see what he thought.  I have also tasted it myself.  It reminds me of a molasses.  It does not have a bad taste.  My brother has lost a couple of pounds and his sugar has been at great levels.
