Organic Dried Raw Yacon Slices
Yacon has been enjoyed for its health-boosting properties in South American cultures for thousands of years. This bag contains 100% pure yacon slices that are certified organic, kosher, vegan and raw.
Yacon is a particularly valuable health food. It contains inulin, a complex sugar that breaks down slowly into fructooligosaccharides (FOS), which promotes healthy probiotics. Mildly sweet, dried yacon slices have a taste and texture similar to dried apple slices.
The mission of Navitas Naturals' is to provide premium organic superfoods that increase energy and enhance health. Our products are of the highest quality, sourced directly from farmers, cultivated sustainably and in accordance with fair trade practices.
- Fructooligosaccharides (FOS)
- Oatmeal and granola
- Trail mix

I find the flavor of yacon to be very reminiscent of apples. That said, these slices were a bit drier than I expected, but make for a nice mouthful of something sweet when you just want a bite of something. This bag will probably last awhile in my house, but if I were going hiking, it would be a great energy item to bring along.
This is a surprisingly tasty product! It's delicious, does taste like a combination of the sweetest apples and melon, except in dried form. Very moist and easy to chew. I have noticed a decrease in my appetite after I eat about 1/4 cup of slices, though that's not why I'm buying them.

I had to get used to these in the beginning, but they only get better, in my opinion. Really tasty treat!
thin and tasty dried fruit
