Pure Monk Fruit | Luo Han Guo

Monk fruit, also known as Luo Han Guo, is a subtropical melon from southern China and northern Thailand region. It is known that monk fruit got its name after Buddhist monks who first cultivated the fruit nearly 800 years ago. It has been used since ancient times for its powerful healing properties.

Monk fruit is nearly 300 times sweeter than sugar but does not raise blood sugar levels in the human body. This is due to a special plant compound that gives ripe monk fruit its sweetness, called mogrosides.

"Mogrosides are not absorbed in the upper gastrointestinal tract and do not contribute to any calories to our diet. When they reach the colon, gut microbes cleave off the glucose molecules and use them as an energy source." -IFIC
