Lakanto Monkfruit Sweetener, Classic
Cooks, bakes and tastes like sugar. Over a thousand years ago: In the remote mountain highlands of Asia, a group of Buddhist monks called the Luohan achieved enlightenment and ascension through meditation, prayer and pure living. On the slopes of a primeval forest, the monks discovered and cultivated a rare fruit prized for its sweetness. This sacred fruit was named monk fruit, or Luohan Guo, after its devoted caretakers and was used in elixirs to raise chi, or life energy. Monk fruit was used for centuries in eastern traditional herbalism to increase chi and well-being earning it the nickname "The Immortals' Fruit." We still grow and harvest monk fruit for Lakanto® in the same pristine area and according to traditional and environmental methods. Born from a proprietary mixture of the high-purity monk fruit extract and non GMO erythritol, Lakanto® is a delicious zero calorie, zero glycemic sweetener with the sumptuous rich taste of sugar. American masters of taste. Gold superior taste. Erythritol is a naturally occurring sugar alcohol found in some fruits and vegetables. www.lakanto.com.
