Swanson 100% Certified Organic Yacon Syrup Review

Albert Davidoff

Different factors like a busy schedule and hunger pains can stand in between you and your weight loss goals. Many people will find themselves in the market for a product that can offer them an additional weight loss boost. Yacon Root Syrup recently burst onto the weight loss market after it was discovered for its weight loss properties and was endorsed by a popular American TV doctor. It is available in the form of a supplement but can also be used in the form of a syrup as a low-calorie alternative sweetener. This review is going to take a closer look at Swanson 100% Certified Organic Yacon Syrup. This product is a way to eat healthier without needing to sacrifice taste. The manufacturer claims that it can satisfy your sweet tooth while also providing you with additional benefits that can help you lose weight.


The only ingredient in this syrup is Yacon Syrup. Yacon Syrup contains high levels of Fructooligosaccharides, or FOS, that are the key component in Yacon Syrup that offers weight loss benefits. FOS are a type of sugar molecule that gives Yacon Syrup its sweet taste but they pass through the digestive tract undetected so the body retains very few calories from it. Yacon is native to Peru and is derived through an extraction process that is similar to the way maple syrup is extracted.


The manufacturer suggests taking one teaspoon and using it to replace your usual sweeteners like sugar, honey or molasses.

This product is generally expected to be safe for pregnant or nursing mothers to consume but as always we recommend that you speak to your doctor before consuming any supplemental product.


You can purchase this product on the manufacturer’s website or from third-party retailers. The manufacturer prices one 14 oz bottle for $21.99. If you subscribe to receive automatic refills, you can receive a 10% discount on all future orders.


Swanson offers a full year money-back guarantee on used and unused products. Any orders valued at more than $500 will be subject to a 20% restocking fee.

Swanson 100% Certified Organic Yacon Syrup Review – Conclusion

This product appears to be a worthy alternative low-calorie sweetener that can also offer weight loss benefits. It comes in an easy to pour bottle and it is organic which is always a plus. However, the consumer reviews we saw are mixed. Some said this product worked well for them. Others reported that it is expensive to continuously use as an alternative sweetener considering that the bottle is small and can run out quickly. They regretfully had to stop using it. Some users claimed that this syrup has an unappealing bitter aftertaste and seemed to be watered down. Everybody’s tastes vary but considering the high price per bottle, this product may a bit too expensive to risk. You may be better off purchasing a syrup that has consistently positive consumer reviews.
