This bundle includes two jars of Andean Star Yacon Syrup, a healthy sugar alternative and substitute for artificial sweeteners. Yacon is an all-natural root from the Andean mountains of Peru which grows at altitudes between 1,000 and 3,200 meters above sea level. The syrup produced from yacon is well known for its sweet taste and is considered an excellent functional food due to its high content of fructo-oligosaccharides (FOS). Fructo-oligosaccharides are the best sugar alternatives because they naturally do not increase blood glucose levels after consumption.
We recommend using one teaspoon of the syrup up to three times daily as a sugar alternative or in place of honey, maple syrup, or molasses.
Andean Star’s Yacon Syrup’s many health benefits include:
- High amounts of fructo-oligosaccharides (FOS).
- Yacon root syrup is a low glycemic index.
- The prebiotic properties gained from the high level of FOS support a healthy digestive tract.
- It improves mineral absorption.
- It is 100% natural and gluten-free.
The year we started producing superfoods, we founded Happy Little Faces, a non-profit organization that provides opportunities for impoverished children in our local community of Lima, Peru. In 2010, we built a kindergarten from scratch, providing free education, lunches, and extra-curricular activities for local children who would otherwise not have these opportunities.
We are proud to say that our initiative has grown successfully in Lima. We thank you for being a large part of our growth as an organization, and for helping the local communities of Peru.

Thank you for choosing Andean Star Organic Brazil nuts and being a part of the story for the next generation Children of the Andes!
