Classic Monk Fruit Sweetener
Also known as “Buddha fruit,” monk fruit is a small, round fruit in the gourd family grown in Southeast Asia. The sweetener is created by removing the seeds and skin of the fruit and crushing it to extract the juice, which is then dried into a concentrated powder. It is high in unique antioxidants called mogrosides, which make it 100–250 times sweeter than regular sugar. To reduce the intensity of sweetness, natural products such as erythritol is added to allow consumers to use monk fruit sweetener in the same manner as sugar. Erythritol /ear-RITH-ri-tal/ is a type of carbohydrate called a sugar alcohol used as a sugar substitute. Monk fruit extract has zero calories, zero carbs, and is rated zero on the glycemic index. Since it will not spike blood sugar, diabetics can incorporate it into their diet more easily than sugar.
As more consumers avoid sugar, they are reaching for alternative sweeteners. We are thrilled to deliver on this trend with the introduction of Monk Fruit– an all natural, zero-calorie sweetener that is surging in popularity.
Monk Fruit is also called "Luo Han Guo," after the monks who discovered it. The monks were healers of people and stewards of the land. Monk Fruit is considered a healing herb in Eastern medicine and has been used since its discovery to treat all kinds of ailments. Because the people who farm Monk Fruit live so long, it is also thought to be the secret to longevity and is nicknamed “The Immortals’ Fruit.”
