The luo han guo fruit, also known as “monk fruit”, is naturally sweet. In fact, the special extract is 300 times sweeter than sucrose! Because luo han guo extract is sweet without affecting blood sugar, it is perfect for a healthy sugar substitute. Luo han guo extract in Lakanto® has:
· Zero calories. Your body does not break down the unique chemical components of the fruit like other simple sugars and carbohydrates.
· Zero glycemic index. Because your body metabolizes luo han guo differently, your blood glucose and insulin levels do not rise like they do with other sugars.
· Zero additives. Lakanto® is made of the natural extract of the luo han guo fruit and erythritol.
