Our classic has more of a clean crisp sweetness while our golden has more of a sweet maple flavor and smell. Our classic is like white sugar, and the golden is like brown sugar.
Both do contain the same ingredients (Monk fruit and Erythritol) but they contain different monk fruit extracts. The Golden sweetener is extracted from the seeds and the skin of the monk fruit, which gives it a more sweet maple flavor and smell. The Classic sweetener is extracted from the pulp of the monk fruit, which gives it a more crisp sweetness.
Everything else about the sweetener is the same, same nutritionals and sweetness profile. The difference between the sweeteners comes from which part of the monk fruit they originate. The Classic (white) sweetener is extracted from the white pulp. The Golden (brown) sweetener is extracted from the seed and peel of the monk fruit. These sweeteners possess the same nutritional content. They do differ in flavor comparable to white and brown sugar. The texture of the Golden is drier than brown sugar — it is not moist.
