Yacon root 500gm

$5.99

Yacon means “water root” in the Inca language and is also known as an “earth apple”. It tastes sweet, like a cross between early apples and watermelon, with a hint of pear. It is delicious peeled and sliced into sticks to snack on, grated or thinly sliced raw through salads or coleslaw. You can also grate and add to fritters, or chop and roast (the outside caramelises!)

It is also touted as a “super food”.

carbohydrates are also touted as a prebiotic, promoting the growth of beneficial bacteria for a healthy gut. That healthy gut environment also favors greater absorption of many trace minerals. Yacon is also claimed to be rich in anti-carcinogens,
