Monk fruit – the natural sweetener that won’t spike your blood sugar

Native to China and Southeast Asia, monk fruit is a small, sweet gourd which was first cultivated by Buddhist Monks in the 13th Century. Also known as Luo Han Guo, monk fruit was traditionally used in herbal medicine.

What makes monk fruit so special is that its sweetness comes mainly from a unique, natural compound called mogroside, which has no impact on blood-sugar levels. What’s more is Monk fruit juice powder is about 200 times sweeter than regular sugar, so can be used in a variety of drinks, baking and cooking at very low doses.
