I've been reading today about artifical sweeteners and the effects that they can have on all of us. So, I'm now doing research into finding a 100% natural diabetic-friendly product and came across this information. Of course, I haven't tried this out yet, never even heard of yacon, and haven't even read the article but like I said, it's something we need to look into.

This syrup contains 7 grams of carbs per teaspoon. Way too many for my lifestyle. I still prefer stevia.

That is great. I have never heard of it, but I imagine my health food store carries it. I will have to check it out to see about it. Sounds promising. I like stevia just fine, but alternatives that I can grow myself are always on my radar.

Thanks for the article, very interesting. I would like to hear from other people who have tried it, before I buy any. Let me know what you think about it.
