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.
