Production & Sourcing
Spray-dried yacon powder is made through a process that involves extracting the juice from yacon root and then spray-drying the extracted juice to remove the moisture and create a powdered form. Here’s how it’s made!
Harvesting: Yacon plants are cultivated and harvested when the roots are mature and contain the desired level of sweetness.
Washing and Preparation: The harvested yacon roots are thoroughly washed to remove dirt and impurities. They are then peeled and sliced into smaller pieces to facilitate the extraction process.
Juice Extraction: The yacon slices are crushed or pressed to extract the juice. The extracted juice contains the natural sweetness and beneficial compounds of yacon, including fructooligosaccharides (FOS).
Filtration and Clarification: The yacon juice is filtered to remove any solid particles or impurities. This helps obtain a clear and smooth liquid.
Spray Drying: The filtered yacon juice is then spray-dried. In this process, the liquid is atomized and sprayed into a chamber where it is exposed to hot air. The hot air rapidly evaporates the moisture from the droplets, leaving behind fine particles of dried yacon.
The dried yacon is grounded into a fine powder and that’s how you get your Spray-Dried Yacon Powder!
