Yacon Syrup Benefits The sugars found in yacon root (and yacon root syrup) are made primarily of fructooligosaccharides (FOS). FOS are short and medium chain sugar molecules. FOS is not digested in the stomach, and instead gets transported to the large intestine, where it acts as a prebiotic - an energy source or food for the "good" bacteria that are present. FOS is naturally present in other foods, such as asparagus, garlic, chicory root, and Jerusalem artichokes, and is considered a soluble dietary fiber that supports digestive health.
