Luo Han Guo, also known as monk fruit, is a rare fruit that is gaining popularity as a sugar substitute. Monk fruit contains sweet substances called mogrosides. Mogrosides are naturally much sweeter than sugar, but are non caloric and do not affect blood sugar levels. This makes Luo Han Guo a great alternative for those looking for a healthy sugar substitute. Besides and an incredibly sweet taste, the mogrosides are also responsible for the health benefits associated with this fruit. This Luo han guo extract contains 80% pure mogrosides and is 25% mogroside V (the sweetest mogroside).
Our Luo han guo powder is standardized to contain at least 7% mogrosides. This product contains a small amount of maltodextrin, which is necessary for it to be in powder form.
Suggested Use: Mix 1/8 - 1/4 teaspoon with recipes, tea, yogurt or add to your favorite smoothie. Three teaspoons of our luo han guo powder is equal to about one cup of sugar.
