A brief history of monk fruit
Monk fruit, also known as Lo Han Guo, has been used for centuries in ancient Chinese medicine. The prized fruit gets its name from Buddhist monks who first used it in the Thirteenth Century, and has also been dubbed "the immortals' fruit" for its healing benefits. Monk fruit contains a non-sugar natural sweetener, which is a key ingredient in Monkose™.
Monkose™ – the Product
While other monk fruit sweeteners contain sugar alcohols as bulking agents like Erythritol, which may be harmful to the human body, the proprietary blend of Monkose™ is derived from non-GMO vegetables and fruits. Monkose™ is formulated in a sugar like crystalline appearance and bulky to make it easier for consumers to dose and use.
Plant based Monkose™ has a bright clean flavor without the bitter chemical aftertaste of other sweeteners and is a perfect substitute for sugar.
Attributes of Monkose™
Contains monk fruit extract and fructose, both natural ingredients
Low glycemic index
Monkose™ does not dump into the bloodstream thus does not raise the blood sugar and does not stimulate insulin production as sucrose does
Monkose™ provides the body with a steady low glycemic energy source without excess carbohydrates
Monkose™ acts as a buffer in a coffee drink to reduce the adverse effects of caffeine while retaining the energy enhancement. Because of its composition Monkose reduces the adrenal- exhausting response to caffeine. It helps avoid the caffeine crash.
