Yacon Slices in Superfood Gallery Back

yacon tuber slices

Dried yacon slices or chips, an ancient South American snack from Andies, is the newest addition to my superfood gallery.

Yacon is a delicious tuber that tastes more like a fruit than a root. It has an outstanding reputation for being one of the healthiest alternative sweeteners available on the market due to its high concentration of inulin, low glycemic impact, and healthy naturally occurring probiotics. When simply sliced and dehydrated, yacon has a taste resembling a dried apple with a hint of smokiness. Enjoy these pure and natural yacon slices as a snack, cut into salads, or as an exotic alternative to other dried fruits.
