I think we can all agree that we have turned to baking more during this lock-down and as delicious that can be, our calories intake have taken quite the hit!

Well thank goodness for Yaconviva, a natural healthy sweetener in the form of a syrup and cacao nibs.

Ideal for low sugar, paleo, keto, vegan and low carb lifestyles, the brand new YaconViva Yacon Syrup is ideal for a variety of everyday uses and makes a great alternative to maple syrup or honey in baking as a substitute for sugar. 

And for those of you who have a sweet tooth, snack on the YaconViva Organic and Vegan Criollo Cacao Nibs, sweetened with Yacon Syrup. They have a subtle sweet taste, which will satisfy your cravings, without you feeling you’re eating a poor substitute for sugar!

YaconViva! Organic Peruvian Yacon Syrup


YaconViva Organic and Vegan Yacon Syrup comes from the Yacon plant, native to Peru and the Andes, yielding naturally sweet syrup that has a Glycemic Index (GI) of just 1. With low GI levels, the syrup has a slow sugar absorption meaning you won’t have the typical negative side effects, like headaches and increased thirst, associated with other sugars and sweeteners.

The naturally prebiotic Yacon Syrup is also rich in natural Fructooligosaccharides (FOS), a fibre that passes through the body undigested, yet feeds your natural gut flora which is great for your immune system and helps you feel fuller for longer. The YaconViva syrup is ideal for those following diets including; gluten-free, paleo, low sugar, low carb and keto.

YaconViva Cacao Nibs are packed full of antioxidants due to their low processing, which acts as brain food, promoting strong cognitive performance. They also contain natural caffeine, which is known to slow ageing and fight stress as well as improving alertness.

I made a yummy cinnamon crumble banana bread using both the syrup and cacao nibs, which gave it a chocolate chip look and taste!
