Monk fruit is also called Luo Han Guo. In traditional Chinese medicine, it was used medicinally as an expectorant, cough remedy, treatment for constipation and as a remedy for clearing heat/fevers from the body. Today, experts consider sweet extracts of natural plants, such as stevia and monk fruit, to be attractive alternatives to sugar.GET A QUOTE

1.What Is Mogrosides/Mogroside V?
Mogrosides are glycosides of cucurbitane derivatives found in the fruit of the gourd vine of monk fruit. Mogrosides are extracted from S. grosvenorii and used in the manufacture of sugar substitutes.
Mogrosides provide varying levels of sweetness — the type known as mogroside V being the highest and also the one associated with the most health benefits. Some products produced with monk fruit may be intensely sweet but can be cut down and used in moderation.
2.How Mogrosides/Mogroside V Works
Many users of monk fruit sweeteners say the taste is pleasant and that there’s little to no bitter aftertaste, unlike some other sugar substitutes.
It’s not sweet due to natural sugars like most fruits. It contains powerful antioxidants called mogrosides, which are metabolized differently by the body than natural sugars.
That’s why, despite their very sweet taste, these fruits virtually contain no calories and have no effect on blood sugar.
