Hermosa Peak Yacon Syrup A Great Sugar Substitute That Helps You Lose Weight

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial


I received a bottle of Hermosa Yacon syrup to try. I requested this product as I was curious of what is was and what it can do for me. I loved that it was a natural sweetener that could help me lose weight  I have 10 pounds to lose and I don't like dieting so I wanted to give the Yacon syrup a try. I already eat healthy and exercise but I like my coffee sweet. This great tasting Yacon syrup was just the thing I needed to help me begin to lose those 10 pounds. I found it easy to use in my coffee as it did not alter the taste, it gave my coffee sweet taste that I liked. I even licked the spoon after putting the syrup in my coffee and it has a nice sweet taste. The taste was like maple syrup. This syrup only has 13 calories per serving and is low glycemic and low carb. This Yacon syrup will help you save calories and carbohydrates in your diet and help you to lose weight.

So you are probably wondering what Yacon syrup is. This syrup originates from the Yacon plant (pronounced yah-KON) of the Andes Mountains in Peru and has been part of the Andean diet for hundreds of years. The yacon juices are extracted from the roots of the yacon plant, then filtered and evaporated in a process very similar to the way Maple syrup is made. A Yacon looks like a sweet potato.


Hermosa Peak Yacon syrup can be a great sugar substitute in baking or even used like maple syrup as the taste and texture are very similar. 
Here is the information I found on the Hermosa Peak Yacon syrup's website to explain how it helps with weight loss:

How Does It Help with Weight Loss?

Yacons contain a high level of fructooligosaccharides, which are natural sugars commonly found in plants. The body resists the process to breakdown these sugars by enzymes during digestion and passes them through the body quickly without retaining the full caloric intake.  Because the sugar in Yacon Syrup isn’t digested like normal foods, you can enjoy sweetness without the calories.


I am going to swap out my sugar in my coffee for this great tasting Yacon syrup and maybe I will lose my ten pounds.  For more information on Hermosa Peak Yacon syrup and to purchase a bottle, click on the below links.

  1. I've never heard of Yacon syrup but I'm very curious to see how well it works with weight loss. It's a natural sugar...so that's always healthier than what's in most of our food.

  14. I have been looking for a natural sweetener to use everyday instead of sugar but I never expected to find one that would help me lose weigh too. After reading your article on Hermosa Peak Yacon Syrup I think I may have found a substitute for sugar without sacrificing any taste.. I can't believe that the syrup only has 13 calories per serving and saving on calories and carbs will help me lose weight. It makes sense to me that if it isn’t digested like normal foods, you can enjoy the sweetness without gaining weight. I can't wait to try it. Thank you for introducing me to this product.
