What’s organic monk fruit extract?
Organic Monk Fruit Extract is a 100% natural powdered extract made from organic monk fruit. It is a unique alternative to sugar and artificial sweeteners.
Monk fruit extract is light yellow to brown powder. Monk fruit extract is also called Luo Han Guo extract. The taste is extremely sweet, its sweetness is 240 times that of sucrose, and its sweetness is close to that of sugar, with a slightly similar aftertaste of licorice.
The unique sweetness of monk fruit comes from the fruit’s natural sweet constituents called mogrosides, which are up to 300 times sweeter than sugar. These calorie-free compounds taste delicious and sweet without bitterness, making them an ideal choice for reducing sugar in a wide range of food and drink products.
Organic Monk Fruit (Luo Han Guo) is a subtropical fruit that has been cultivated in the remote mountains of southern China, in Guangxi Province, for centuries. According to legend, the monk’s fruit is named after the Buddhist monks who first cultivated it almost 800 years ago. We concentrate the sweetest part of the monk fruit into an ingredient that delivers a 100% natural, calorie-free sweet taste from the pure fruit.
