A NATURAL & HEALTHY SWEETNESS SOLUTION
To be successful packaged food and beverage products first have to taste great, but consumers are also more concerned than ever about making natural and healthy choices.
With monk fruit, “better for you” and “great-tasting” finally go hand in hand.
For years food and beverage companies have been looking for natural alternatives to sugar. Monk fruit is a solution that delivers natural, great-tasting low-calorie sweetness. Consumers trust fruit because they associate it with healthy, delicious sweetness. Monk fruit provides a natural source of pure sweetness with the goodness of fruit, and because it’s concentrated there’s often room for other product enhancements like additional complex carbohydrates, fibers and whole grains.
Monk fruit juice concentrate is a natural fruit juice that is 15-20 times sweeter than sugar. With a clean flavor profile and no lingering bitterness, monk fruit juice concentrate is an ideal solution for reducing or replacing added sugar in foods and beverages where a juice ingredient is preferred.
Monk fruit extract is a powdered fruit extract that is 150 to 200 times sweeter than sugar with a clean flavor profile and no bitter aftertaste. Monk fruit extract is supplied in a convenient, concentrated powder form and can be used to reduce or replace sugar in a wide range of foods and beverages.
