How long would it take to see changes if I take this product?
After taking NZFOS+ (with a healthy diet and exercise), you could expect to see the following changes:
How is FOS both dietary fibre and prebiotic?
First of all, FOS is a “water-soluble dietary fibre”. The water-soluble dietary fibre will swell and show a gelatine state after being soaked in water. Therefore, FOS can help the hydrate intestines, increase the weight and volume of faeces, thus helping to relieve constipation.
Secondly, since the human body does not digest or decompose FOS, it eventually reaches the large intestine and selectively nourishes “good bacteria”. For this reason, FOS is a prebiotic approved by the WHO (World Health Organization).
What is the biggest difference between yacon from other countries and NZFOS+ yacon?
The biggest difference between yacon from other countries and New Zealand yacon is the concentration of prebiotics (FOS). New Zealand yacon are grown organically, the thickness of NZFOS+ is at least 80 Brix, and it has a standardised natural FOS level of at least 37 percent.
Why is the product made into syrup instead of powder or capsules?
The form of the syrup best preserves the FOS and other active ingredients from the yacon in the most natural way. Both milling and capsulation require multiple processing steps, and natural prebiotics will be spoiled if they are processed excessively.
Does this product contain any animal ingredients?
No. It is certified Vegan.
What is the difference between other yacon syrup products and NZFOS+ yacon concentrate?
The biggest difference between is the concentration of prebiotics (FOS) and FOS/free sugar ratio. The thickness of NZFOS+ is 80 Brix, at least 60% of the total carbohydrate is FOS. It is certified low GI and approved for use as a therapeutic supplement not just a food or sugar replacement.
Is NZFOS+ organic?
The yacon used in NZFOS+ comes from three plantations in New Zealand. The yacon from the Kerikeri farm is organic and the other two farms – Pukekohe and Mangatawhiri – are in a transitioning period. New Zealand Pure Organic Certification takes a 3-year monitoring on not just the plantation but the entire supply chain, and we are working towards fully organic.
