According to Sugar-and-Sweetener-Guide.com, yacon can be safely eaten raw, unlike some other tubers (Potatoes) which must be cooked. Consequently the Yacon Syrup can be described as raw provided a low temperature is used to evaporate the moisture. It is probably the only truly raw, organic, natural, low calorie, and low glycemic sweetener available.
Yacon Syrup is an amazing natural sweetener with unique properties. It is a prebiotic and contains useful soluble fiber. However, because of the fiber content excessive consumption should be avoided. (The same applies to wheat bran!) It is suitable, or even beneficial, for diabetics and it is harmless to teeth. It is a low calorie, low glycemic, natural sweetener with beneficial properties.
