To make this incredible Raw Brazil Nut Chocolate Spread with Yacon, we slowly stone-grind small batches of cocoa beans and nibs for 30 hours to create a smooth, fine-particle, fresh raw organic chocolate. We then add our own creamy raw organic Brazil nut butter and finally sweeten with the sugar of the yacon root.
Yacon contains a sugar called inulin. Inulin is not digested by your body, so you experience the sweetness of the sugar without the spike in blood sugar. Yacon is both high water and high fiber content so you will experience the sweet taste without all the calories. Because inulin is not easily digested, and does not spike blood sugar levels, yacon is considered a good alternative for individuals suffering from diabetes and hypoglycemia. Yacon is not sugar free, instead it is considered a reduced sugar or low sugar sweetener.
The inulin content in yacon is also believed to offer multiple health benefits. Inulin may help with digestion while promoting beneficial bacteria in your digestive system and inhibiting harmful organisms. Yacon has even been shown in studies to help people lose weight. In a study by Gentaa, it was shown that a daily intake of yacon syrup produced a significant decrease in body weight, waist circumferance and body mass index. This study focused on obese pre-menopausal women.
When it’s raw and unprocessed, chocolate is one of nature’s most nutritious foods. Our goal is to offer raw organic chocolate with yacon that maintains life energy, protects vital nutrients and antioxidants, and maximizes health benefits.
