Seedling to Supermarket
A New Zealand/Chinese joint venture company called Monk Fruit Corp. accounts for more than 70% of the global monk fruit supply, sourcing fruit from orchards nestled amongst the pristine mountains of Southern China. Swathed in sunlight, the non-GMO vine-ripened fruit is nurtured by expertly-trained growers who hand-pick the fruit at the peak of ripeness each fall.
We’ve perfected a simple process to capture the natural, low-calorie sweetness of monk fruit, while maintaining its pure fruit goodness. Here’s how it works:
The fruit is crushed to release its natural, sweet juice.
The crushed fruit is mixed with hot water to make a sweet infusion.
The infusion is filtered, leaving a clear, sweet juice.
The infusion is filtered and leaves a clear juice that contains the sweet anti-oxidants and a small amount of natural fruit sugar. The juice retains the fruit sugars for a delicious, low-calorie product. Our monk fruit extract is made by separating the fruit sugars from the sweet anti-oxidants which are then spray dried as a powder.
