What is Monk Fruit Extract
Monk Fruit Extract is an extract that is exclusively derived from Monk Fruit. Monk Fruit is a small fruit that grows in southern China and has been used for medicinal purposes in Eastern medicine for centuries. While it is widely used for medicinal purposes and aiding in digestive health, it is also used as a sweetener for both foods and beverages. Monk Fruit is commonly used as a zero-calorie substitute for sugar. Monk Fruit Extract is between 100 and 250 times sweeter than sugar, which means it requires less of the extract than if you were to use sugar.
How Does Monk Fruit Extract Work?
Monk Fruit contains the natural sugars fructose and glucose, however, those are not the contributing factors to its sweetness. Instead, Monk Fruit receives its sweetness from the antioxidants known as mogrosides. Mogrosides are a cucurbitane derivative of glycosides. Due to the way that Monk Fruit Extract is made the fructose and glucose components are not included in the extract and only the mogrosides remain.
