'Of The Eath' is now selling a line of yacon root crisps that serve as a healthy alternative to potato chips. Yacon is a sweet-tasting tuberous root vegetable that is found in South America. While the vegetable is similar to a potato, it has added health benefits such as boosting digestion and enhancing colon health.

The Yacon Root Flakes from Of The Earth consist of dehydrated slices of organic yacon root. Although nothing is added to the crisps, the naturally-sweet taste of yacon gives them a delicious natural flavor. Additionally, the vegetable's ability to pass through the body undigested means that the crisps contain half as many calories as the average sugar source.

The Yacon Root Flakes are perfect for health-conscious consumers looking for nutritious alternatives to traditional snack foods such as potato chips.
