    Monk Fruit as Sugar Substitute
    There is no need for complicated conversions with Lakanto Classic Monkfruit Sweetener. It can be used exactly like regular white sugar. This Classic version is Lakanto’s white sugar alternative. The flavor and color are the same as white sugar too, both coming from different parts of the monk fruit (also known as Luo Han Guo or Lo Han Guo) than their brown sugar flavor Monkfruit Sweetener. Since Monkfruit Sweetener with Erythritol cooks and bakes the same as regular refined white sugar, and it tastes the same, plus it has zero net carbs and zero calories, why would you choose anything else?


    Does Monk Fruit Sweetener Have an Aftertaste? Monk Fruit Sweetener vs. Stevia

Lakanto pairs it with Erythritol to create a delicious sugar-like taste with no aftertaste. Rejoice – this all-natural sugar substitute is healthier for you while tasting like the real thing! In contrast, most stevia sweeteners do leave a bitter aftertaste. Also, monk fruit is known to be generally safe with no harmful side effects, while stevia can cause allergic reactions and side effects like gas and bloating. If you are trying to choose between these two non-nutritive sweeteners, try Lakanto Classic Monkfruit with Erythritol first and you’ll probably be so sweetly pleased that you won’t need to look any further.

    Monk Fruit on Keto Diet

    Does Monk Fruit Raise Blood Sugar?
    You might have wondered: “Is monk fruit sweetener safe for diabetics? Will monk fruit raise my or my loved one’s blood sugar levels?" Let’s jump straight to the answer – Monkfruit Sweetener is an excellent choice for diabetics and should not affect your blood sugar levels! Even the Diabetes Council calls monk fruit “a power food for diabetes”! Plus, there have been zero reports to the US FDA of negative effects due to the use of monk fruit. In addition to this wonderful news, monk fruit is also antioxidant and anti-diabetic. In animal studies, it has been found to actually lower blood lipids. Monk fruit sweetener is considered to be a non-nutritive sweet alternative because it has no calories. Essentially, it won’t make you gain weight, but it won’t help you lose weight either. Lakanto Classic Monkfruit Sweetener also contains Erythritol which is also generally regarded as safe for consumption by diabetics and does not raise blood sugar levels.

    Is Monk Fruit Sweetener Low FODMAP?
    Sufferers of IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome) have found relief and symptom management with low-FODMAP foods and recipes. FODMAP is an acronym that stands for recognized short chain carbohydrates that are not absorbed easily in the small intestine and can cause digestive difficulties. On the internet, you’ll find conflicting information for the FODMAP safety of monk fruit. It actually has an unknown status, but you will find low-FODMAP recipes that include it. The same goes for erythritol. It seems that neither substance has been approved as having a low-FODMAP status but that some people on a low-FODMAP diet can tolerate them. It is suggested to try a little and see how your body reacts. If you can tolerate these sweeteners, you’re in for a real sweet treat!

    Why Lakanto is the Best
    Unlike most fruits, whose sweetness comes from fructose, Monks Fruit's sweetness comes from natural mogrosides that are 300 times sweeter than sugar.

Born from a proprietary mixture of the highest purity Monk Fruit extract & non-GMO Erythritol, Lakanto is a delicious all-natural zero calorie, zero glycemic sweetener with the sumptuous rich taste of sugar.

    What is Lakanto made of?
    Lakanto is made from Erythritol, a sugar alcohol made from fermented glucose from certified non-GMO corn and high-purity Monk Fruit (Luo Han Guo) fruit extract. It contains no flavors, colors, preservatives or additives of any kind.

    How is Lakanto Classic different from Lakanto Golden?
    Lakanto Classic is made with an extra-high purity extract from early-harvest Monk Fruit to achieve a clean, sugar-like taste and color. Lakanto Classic has the same sweetness, zero calories and zero glycemic index as Lakanto Golden, but without the taste, aroma or color. There are no additional ingredients, colors or preservatives.

    Who makes Lakanto?

    Is Lakanto safe for people with corn intolerance?
    Yes, Lakanto is safe for people with corn intolerance, sensitivities or allergies because it contains no corn proteins that may trigger allergic reactions. 100% of corn protein is eliminated during the fermentation process used to create Erythritol.

    What makes Lakanto different from other sweeteners?
    Lakanto is the only sweetener on the market that successfully combines Erythritol with Monk Fruit – a prized Chinese medicinal fruit. Lakanto is designed to match the sweetness profile of sugar as closely as possible and can be used like sugar in cooking or baking.

Lakanto Golden a beautiful golden color and a unique, delicious taste, while Lakanto Classic has a clean sweetness and tastes similar to sugar.

    What is Erythritol?
    Erythritol is a sugar alcohol that exists naturally in many plants such as grapes and mushrooms and in fermented foods like cheese, wine and beer. It is produced through a natural fermentation process and it does not cause dental cavities or contribute to tooth decay since mouth bacteria can’t metabolize it. Erythritol has about 65-75% of the sweetness of sugar. Erythritol is the only sugar alcohol produced through fermentation.

    What about the 4 carbohydrates?
    Lakanto contains 4 zero net carbs per serving. These carbs are non-glycemic, meaning they are not converted into calories by your body.

    Where can I use Lakanto?
    Lakanto looks, tastes and can be used a lot like raw, unprocessed sugar. Sprinkle it on food and use it in place of sugar in your favorite recipes. Lakanto has no aftertaste and is highly stable. When used in large amounts, Lakanto may crystallize if chilled. Lakanto does not caramelize.

    Will I have to change my recipes?
    No. Since its sweetness curve is almost identical to sucrose, you can use Lakanto as one-to-one sugar substitute.

    The Lakanto Story

    Over a thousand years ago in remote mountain highlands of Asia, a group of Buddhist monks called the Luohan achieved enlightenment 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 scared fruit was named Monk Fruit, or Luohan Guo, after its devoted caretakers and was used in elixirs to increase 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". Lakanto still grows and harvests Monk Fruit for their prodict in the same pristine area and according to traditional and environmental methods.

    This sweetener is amazing. I use it in everything that I cook that requires sugar... also used it in my cole slaw dressing.. You cannot tell it is not real sugar, no aftertaste. I'm glad I read a review somewhere and that lead me to it... now maybe I can pass along my knowledge to someone else. Also Lucky Vitamin has the best price...
