Monk Fruit – Natural Sugar-Free Sweetener
Monk fruit, also known as Luo Han Guo, is a fruit native to Southeast Asia. The fruit contains mogrosides that lend it the extra sweetness that make it a wonderful natural sweetener. The mogrosides in monk fruit are 250 times sweeter than sucrose, so it’s possible to use very little and still achieve a high level of sweetness. Monk fruit also carries very little bitterness or other flavors in comparison to other plant-based sweeteners such as stevia, so its a good choice for picky eaters.
Monk fruit is one of the best sweeteners to use in place of sugar for people who are following an anti-candida, anti-addiction, or anti-cancer diet. You only need to use a tiny amount of this sweetener to get the same sweetening effects, so you get a lot of servings out of this small bottle of concentrated monk fruit extract!
