WHY MONK FRUIT INSTEAD OF OTHER FRUIT?
Monk Fruit contains natural sugars, mainly fructose and glucose. However, unlike in most fruits, the natural sugars in monk fruit aren’t responsible for its sweetness. Instead, it gets its intense sweetness from unique antioxidants called mogrosides. During processing, mogrosides are separated from the fresh-pressed juice. Therefore, Monk Fruit sweetener does not contain fructose or glucose. This Monk Fruit extract may be 100 – 250 times sweeter than sucrose. FDA has deemed Monk fruit “Generally Recognized as Safe (GRAS)” for everyone, including pregnant women and children.”
