What is Swanson 100% Certified Organic Yacon Syrup?
Compromising taste is one of the hardest parts of dieting and can hold you back from meeting your weight loss goals, especially if you have a sweet tooth. There are many options for artificial sweetener replacements but the problem with these sweeteners is that many are full of chemicals that are toxic for human consumption. This review is going to examine Certified Organic Yacon Syrup made by Swanson. Yacon syrup has taken the weight loss diet industry by storm. It is a natural, low-calorie sweetener can be used as a substitute for your usual go to, high-calorie sweetener or high chemical artificial sweetener. Yacon Syrup is believed to also contain appetite-suppressing properties that offer an extra boost to meet your weight loss goals.
- 100% certified organic yacon root (Smallanthus sonchifolius) syrup
This Yacon syrup is 100% pure and exclusively derived from organically grown Peruvian Yacon root through an extraction process that does not involve any chemical solvents. It is believed to be one of the best sources of fructooligosaccharides. The fructooligosaccharides reach the large intestine where they feed the friendly bacteria in the digestive system. They stimulate the taste buds but humans cannot digest them, making it an excellent alternative to high-calorie sweeteners.
Swanson recommends taking one teaspoon of Yacon Syrup as desired. It may be used in place of honey, molasses, and other popular sweetening options.

Our Final Review of Swanson 100% Certified Organic Yacon Syrup
Swanson’s Yacon Syrup seems to be an okay product. They offer a decent return policy and have recipes on their website you can make to incorporate this syrup. Considering that Yacon Syrup can replace any sweetener, chances are that it can run through quickly but they do not offer bulk purchasing options which can deter a consumer from purchasing this syrup continuously. Their website has detailed explanations of the benefits of taking Yacon however, they claim that they have the highest reported levels of FOS at 39 g and we found that to be untrue as we were able to find other brands of Yacon Syrup that have upwards of 41.39 g. In our research, we have found other Yacon Syrups that are more reasonably priced and offer consistently truthful information, for these reasons we are inclined to steer away from this syrup and look into other brands that are available.
