Monk Fruit Sweetened
Monk Fruit or luo han guo is the fruit of Siraitia grosvenorii, a perennial vine in the gourd family native Southern China and Northern Thailand. Much like stevia, the extract of monk fruit is hundreds of time sweeter than sugar without the carbs. Traditionally the fruits are sold dried for tea or soup. The sweetness of monk fruit comes from mogrosides, a compound that makes up only 1% of the fruit itself. Choc Zero uses their 'exclusive monk fruit formula' - trade secret!
