Jerusalem Artichoke Syrup
This Sweetener is a Natural Sugar
Natural sugars are found naturally in foods such as fruit (fructose) and milk (lactose) and some vegetables. The Jerusalem artichoke (sunchoke) plant grows wild in North America. Jerusalem artichoke syrup is made by pressing the roots of the artichoke. The syrup (concentrated vegetable juice) is achieved through concentration and filtration.
It’s a Fructo-oligosaccharides
Fructo-oligosaccharides (FOS) are composed of short fructose chains. Jerusalem artichoke syrup is 100% FOS, inulin. This is a natural prebiotic.
Inside and Out
Jerusalem artichoke syrup has a pleasant sweet taste. Its FOS is an indigestible sugar. They go to your large intestine, where they are fermented by the good bacteria in your gut. This process produces short-chain fatty acids that keep the lining of your gut healthy. Since FOS is not digested, it doesn’t cause a spike in blood sugar.
Put it to Good Use
Jerusalem artichoke syrup is about 50% as sweet as table sugar. You may need to use this sweetener in conjunction with another sweetener. You can use it in coffee or tea, yogurt, smoothies, jams, salad dressings, and for baking.
