Like the sound of a 100% natural sweetener with no calories? Monk Fruit sweetener is ideal when you’re off sugar but still want a bit of sweetness. It’s great for the whole family and suitable for diabetics, low carb, keto and vegan diets.
Monk Fruit is a natural sugar substitute from the Luo Han Guo plant (Siraitia grosvenorii). Like Stevia, Monk Fruit is around 250 times sweeter than sugar. The sweetness comes from a special compound called mogroside, which is extracted from the melon-like fruit. Another upside to Monk Fruit is that it’s carb free and has very little aftertaste.
Monk Fruit sweetener is super versatile and available in liquid and powder form, as well as in our Sweetener Blends. You can add Monk Fruit to your natural desserts, smoothies, Cacao drinks or herbal tea, just remember that Monk Fruit extract is best used sparingly. Due to its intense sweetness, a little goes a long way!
Monk Fruit is considered a healthy choice of sweetener as it has no effect on blood sugar and is suitable for diabetics. It’s also suitable for low carb and keto diets, hence you’ll also find it in our Keto Sweeteners category.
