Monk Fruit Extract
Monk Fruit Corp’s Fruit-Sweetness™ monk fruit extract is a 100% natural powdered extract made from monk fruit. Fruit-Sweetness™ is approximately 150 -200 times sweeter than sugar, and is a unique alternative to sugar and artificial sweeteners. We concentrate the sweetest part of the monk fruit to make an ingredient that delivers great-tasting, 100% natural, calorie-free sweetness from pure fruit. The unique sweetness of monk fruit concentrate comes from naturally occurring sweet constituents in the fruit called mogrosides which are up to 300 times sweeter than sugar. These calorie-free compounds have a delicious, sweet taste without bitterness, making Fruit-Sweetness™ an ideal choice for reducing sugar in a wide range of food and beverage products.
