Yacón powder and yacón flakes from the Andes in Peru,
traditionally cultivated and harvested by small farmers.
Eaten by the Inca's as a snack or sweet, Peruvian ground apple –or- yacón is still enjoyed by Peruvians every day.
With a texture similar to that of an apple and a flavor profile that can be described as a cross between water melon, apple and cucumber yacón makes for a healthy delicious snack.
The tubers are large and weigh from a few hundred grams to as much as kilogram. Yacón tubers contain inulin, a sugar that the human body does not metabolize, making yacón popular a low-calorie sweetener for diabetics and people on diet.
