What is this?
This is a 100% natural sugar substitute made from Monk Fruit, a small sweet melon native to China and Southeast Asia.
It is said to have been named after Buddhists Monks who are believed to have been the first to cultivate the fruit back in the 13th century. It is also known as Luo Han Guo and was traditionally used in herbal medicine.
What is so special about it?
What makes monk fruit so amazing is that its sweetness comes mainly from a unique natural compound called mogroside, which has no impact on blood sugar levels.
This makes monk fruit juice powder an excellent 100% natural sugar substitute and perfect for those requiring less sugar in their diet.
How do I use it?
This Monk Fruit Juice Powder does not spike blood sugar levels making it a great sugar replacement for diabetics, low carb dieters or people wishing to cut back on their sugar consumption. It has a pleasant sweetness with no bitter aftertaste and only a small amount is required to reach desired sweetness.
One 5th of a teaspoon of monk fruit powder is where to start with for the equivalent of one teaspoon of cane sugar.
Packed in a facility that may have exposure to nuts and sesame seeds.
