Monk fruit, also known as Luo Han Guo, grows on a vine native to China and Thailand. It contains mogrosides, natural glycosides that are up to 200 times sweeter than fructose.

Mogroside ‘V’ is extracted from the sweetest part of the fruit. This fine, brown powder made from 100% monk fruit has a mogroside V value of 1%. One teaspoon of this monk fruit powder, about four grams, is equivalent in sweetness to approximately four teaspoons of sugar – yet it contains less than two kilojoules per teaspoon. It is certified organic and contains no fillers or artificial additives. Monk fruit extract contains no sodium and almost no carbs and is suitable for keto or paleo eating plans.

Monk fruit powder can be used as an almost-zero calorie sweetener in beverages and cooking recipes. As it is much sweeter than sugar, only a small amount is required.


How to Use:

Use just a quarter of a teaspoon, about one gram, of this monk fruit extract powder to substitute for 1 teaspoon of sugar. As everybody’s taste buds differ, it is best to do a taste test the first time you use monk fruit powder and adjust the amount up or down depending on your personal preference before adding to your beverage or cooking recipe.

It is great in smoothies and hot or cold beverages. Dissolve in a little warm water before adding to iced tea, homemade lemonade or other cold drinks.

Monk fruit is a great way to add sweetness to sauces, puddings and desserts – without the extra calories. It can be used as a substitute for liquid sweeteners like honey or maple syrup in homemade confectionery and chocolate, baking recipes, or raw treats by dissolving the powder to make a syrup.

If you are using a recipe that calls for granulated sugar it will be necessary to adjust your recipe, to allow for the lack of ‘bulk’, by adding another dry ingredient or reducing the amount of liquid. Add a tiny pinch of this monk fruit powder to balance the flavour of savoury or sweet and sour dishes or the acid in tomato sauces.

As monk fruit powder is sensitive to moisture be sure to store it in a dry, airtight container and always use a dry spoon to remove it from the jar.

Storage:
Moisture sensitive. Store in an airtight container in a cool, dry place, away from direct sunlight.

Shelf Life:
Up to 24 months when stored as above. See Best Before date.
