Lo Han Honey is a 100% natural, zero calorie, Organic sugar alternative in liquid form. Buddha Fruit’s Lo Han Honey is the only product which only contains pure Monk Fruit (aka Luo Han Guo) extract. Many other brands tend to water their Monk Fruit liquid drops down which creates a cheaper but less superior product and you’ll need more. We have chosen to supply you with an all natural, non-GMO, pure Monk Fruit so you can get all the benefits from this magnificent fruit extract. As this is a pure product you only need a tiny amount as it is super sweet, about 4-6 drops equates to 1 tsp of sugar.
Monk Fruit (also known as Luo Han Guo) is cultivated within the mountains of Guangxi, Southern China, in which it is then processed into a fine powder to use as a natural sugar alternative. Monk Fruit extract has been used for centuries by Buddhist Monks and is know as the ‘longevity fruit’, to learn more about this amazing sugar alternative and it’s health benefits click here
Monk Fruit (aka Lou Han Guo) does not raise blood glucose levels so is perfect for people who are diabetic or pre-diabetic. The extract contains Zero carbohydrates so if you are looking to lower your carb intake or are following a Keto style diet then this natural sweetener is a perfect option. Another great benefit to Monk Fruit is that it has not yet been shown to contain any associated adverse effects, whereas many other sugar alternatives have been shown to produce gastrointestinal distress, bloating and many other uncomfortable symptoms.
What’s the difference between Lo Han Guo (the blue packet) and Golden Lo Han Guo (the orange packet)?
Lo Han Guo is slightly sweeter as it contains a higher percentage of compounds called MogrosideV. MogrosideV determines the sweetness of Monk Fruit, a bit like glucose molecules in sugar. Lo Han Guo (blue packet) is ground more than Golden Lo Han Guo (golden packet) which makes it more potent in sweetness and it appears as white in colour. Golden Lo Han Guo contains a lower percentage of MogrosideV, hence it is less sweet compared to Lo Han Guo. It also has a slight fruity taste and is golden in colour. Use Golden Lo Han Guo (25% Mogroside V) for making baked goods such as muffins, cakes, add to coffee etc. and Lo Han Guo (40% Mogroside V) when making homemade ice cream, add to smoothies, tea etc.
