Monk Fruit Powder

$21.99(2oz bag)
Order now and we'll ship Thursday, Jan 23.

Monk fruit powder is a natural low-calorie sugar alternative, derived from real monk fruit. Also known as Luo Han Guo, monk fruit is a small melon native to southeast Asia. The fruit is very sweet, due primarily to naturally-occurring antioxidants known as mogrosides which give a cleaner and more intense sweetness. Only a small amount is needed to sweeten food or drinks.

Nuts.com’s Premium Monk Fruit Powder

Our monk fruit powder is 100% pure extract, which means it contains the highest concentration of the antioxidants mogrosides that you’ll find anywhere. Since our luo han guo is very potent, you don’t need to use much. Just a teaspoon of our monk powder provides the same amount of sweetness as one cup of sugar. The monk fruit packets sold in supermarkets often contain binding agents and fillers that dilute the product. That’s why it’s important to look for 80% pure extract monk fruit powder. Our monk fruit powder is 80% mogrosides, the main chemical component that gives the powder sweetness, but is made with 100% Luo Han Guo Fruit and no other carriers.

How to Use Monk Fruit Sweetener

Monk fruit powder is 200-250 times the sweetness of table sugar so a little goes a long way! This all-natural sweetener has a caramelized toffee fruit flavor, which makes it the perfect substitute for honey. Plus, there’s no bitter aftertaste. Sweeten your coffee, tea, or other beverages with 1/2 a teaspoon of monk fruit sweetener. It also works as an alternative to sugar or maple syrup in oatmeal, yogurt, and other foods. Feel free to experiment with the quantity to achieve the desired sweetness that works best for you.

Substituting monk fruit powder in cooking and baking gets a little trickier because most recipes require sugar for needed volume and texture. Start by substituting half the amount of sugar in your recipe with the necessary amount of monk fruit powder for sweetness. This may require some experimentation but you’ll get the hang of it in no time. Monk fruit powder is heat-stable so it can readily be used in many recipes. It can also be used in sugar-free and no-sugar-added foods and dietary supplements.

Health Benefits of Monk Fruit Powder

In Eastern medicine, monk fruit has been used for centuries to treat various ailments. Monk fruit powder is rich in antioxidants known as mogrosides, which give the fruit an intensely sweet flavor. Studies show that mogrosides may provide anti-inflammatory benefits although more research is needed to understand the benefits of mogrosides in monk fruit. Since monk fruit does not affect blood sugar levels in the same way as traditional sweeteners, it is considered a safe option for diabetics. Preliminary research suggests that monk fruit may also have an antihistamine effect, which could be beneficial for treating allergies and asthma.

A nice alternative to sugar, I am still getting used to portioning this sweet product. Thus far I do like it, the price & quantity are good. This will last me for some time & for that I can rationalize the cost. So in short thank you for another great product, it's always fun to try new stuff. I would purchase this again, & I've already recommended this to a friend.
