Organic Monk Fruit Extract

What is it?


Organic Monk Fruit (Luo Han Guo) is a sub-tropical fruit cultivated in the remote mountains of Southern China, Guangxi province for centuries. According to legend, monk fruit is named after the Buddhist monks who first cultivated the fruit nearly 800 years ago.

The organic monk fruit extract is a 100% natural powdered extract made from organic monk fruit. Its fruit sweetness is approximately 150 -300 times sweeter than sugar and is a unique alternative to sugar and artificial sweeteners. We concentrate the sweetest part of the monk fruit to make an ingredient that delivers great-tasting, 100% natural, calorie-free sweetness from the pure fruit. The unique sweetness of monk fruit concentrate comes from naturally occurring sweet constituents in the fruit called mogrosides which are up to 300 times sweeter than sugar. These calorie-free compounds have a delicious, sweet taste without bitterness, making it an ideal choice for reducing sugar in a wide range of food and beverage products.
