To be honest there is no love lost between me and yacon syrup. Tastes a lot like pancake syrup to me. Let me clarify in saying that its not a bad taste, I am just strange with tastes and scents. BUT I accepted this review because I have a dear dear friend that loves this stuff, so I passed it along to her. She swears by the fact that while using this product her appetite is greatly decreased and she has a ton more energy. In the grand scheme of things she uses this daily and it helps her keep on track on her diet and helps her move her day along. She has thyroid problems and can’t use every weight loss supplement out there, but this one is one that doesn’t interfere with her thyroid at all, it is safe for her to use. Being all natural, its not full of things that would harm her.
