Monk Fruit, our favorite healthy sweetener, has some surprising benefits that qualify calling it a superfood! It is an ancient Chinese fruit that has not been genetically modified. Studies * show promising benefits including:
- Fights Free Radicals as a high antioxidant food
- Lowers Risk of Obesity and Diabetes
- Acts as an Anti-Inflammatory and Coolant
- Helps Treat and Prevent Cancer
Consider using Monk Fruit as your sweetener of choice! No bitter aftertaste with excellent sweetening power. We recommend a pure liquid such as offered by Lakanto, NOW, or Smart138. If you prefer a powder or crystal, make sure it is mixed with erythritol rather than maltodextrin or dextrose.
