What Is It Made Of?
MonkSweet+ is a natural sweetening solution that brings together just the right amounts of monk fruit, stevia and erythritol, a sugar alcohol derived by microbial fermentation, to create a truly clean, delectable sweetener. This combination offers multiple advantages.
Monk fruit and stevia are high intensity sweeteners, with about 200 – 300 times the sweetness of table sugar (sucrose). Flavor is the biggest payback. On its own, stevia can have a bitter note. Monk fruit is a natural flavor enhancer that helps mask off-notes/flavors in stevia. Erythritol contributes a mild cooling effect. Overall, the sweetness delivery is clean and neutral.
How Is It Made?
Monkfruit has been a favorite for centuries in cultures around the world. Monk fruit’s sweetness comes from a group of compounds called mogrosides within the fruit from the Siraitia grosvenorii plant. The mogrosides are extracted using only a natural water process. After rinsing, filtering and drying, the resultant mogrosides provide a sweetness that is typically 200 – 250 times sweeter than table sugar. Because of its intensity, monk fruit is typically used only in very small amounts.
SteviaSweet stevia powder starts its life as an all-natural stevia leaf. When the stevia leaves are processed, using only a natural water extractions process (never any petrochemicals or bleaches!), the result is a creamy white powder, called steviosides, or Rebaudioside A. It is 250 to 300 times sweeter than sugar yet has no carbohydrates or calories, and is safe for diabetics and those with hypoglycemia.
SteviaSweet stevia powder uses the least bitter, sweetest constituent of the stevia leaf, resulting in a sweet, clean flavor.
Usually made from the naturally occurring sugars in plants, that sugar is mixed with water and then fermented with a natural culture. This natural fermentation process yields erythritol, which is then filtered, allowed to crystallize and then dried. The result is a granular form that looks very similar to table sugar and is ready to use as a table top sweetener.
