OREM, Utah, Oct. 23, 2023 — Lakanto, a trusted name in the world of healthy, natural, sugar-free products, is excited to introduce the latest addition to its Monk Fruit sweetener family. The Monkfruit Sweetener with Allulose offers a harmonious combination of Monk Fruit’s natural sweetness and the unique properties of allulose, providing consumers with more choice in natural alternatives to sugar.

Lakanto has long been committed to offering sugar alternatives that cater to diverse tastes, lifestyles, and dietary needs, this new blend is no exception. Monkfruit Sweetener with Allulose offers a fusion of sweetness and more choice. Just as many of Lakanto’s Monk Fruit sweeteners are formulated with Erythritol, the brand is adding the allulose option for customers who prefer it.

All of Lakanto’s sweetener ingredients come from natural sources, do not affect blood glucose, and contribute no calories nor net carbs. While allulose is only about 70% as sweet as sugar, it is a perfect blend with Monk Fruit which is about 300 times as sweet as sugar. Being a monosaccharide like sugar, allulose can mimic some of its qualities, such as the ability to caramelize under heat. Allulose is not a sugar alcohol and is another safe and natural sweetener that blends beautifully with Monk Fruit. Allulose has also demonstrated prebiotic characteristics, which may prove to be another unique benefit.

As part of the Monkfruit Sweetener with Allulose launch, Lakanto has also released All About Allulose, an educational guide encouraging consumers to become more acquainted with the natural ingredient. It is rich with background and tips including:

• Allulose vs. Sugar
• The Science Behind Allulose
• Functional Benefits of Allulose
• Cooking with Allulose
• Allulose Myth Busting
• And More
