Functions: Exactly as raw cane sugar or brown sugar does in recipes – firms up after cooling to hold cookies and baking together, sweetens with no aftertaste.
Ratio to sugar in recipes: 1:1 sweetness as sugar so 1 Cup Lakanto Golden Monkfruit Sweetener = 1 Cup Raw or Brown Sugar.
Over a thousand years ago, a sacred fruit was named Monkfruit, or Luohan Guo, after its devoted caretakers, and was used in elixirs to increase chi, or life energy. Monkfruit was used for centuries in eastern traditional herbalism to increase chi and well-being, earning it the nickname "The Immortals' Fruit".
- Monkfruit – still harvested in the same pristine area and according to traditional environmental methods. Monkfruit sweetness comes from antioxidant compounds called mogrosides. These are incredibly sweet and aren’t recognized by the body as sugar so are metabolised differently without raising blood sugar levels.
- Erythritol – non-GMO naturally occurring sugar alcohol found in some fruits and vegetables.
