What is Monk Fruit

The new sweetener from a centuries-old source. 

A member of the melon family, monk fruit grows in remote highlands in Asia.

Considered a national treasure in China, monk fruit, also known as luo han guo, has been harvested by monks for centuries and traditionally grown in small family orchards.

Today, PUREFRUIT™ Monk Fruit Extract offers a great-tasting way for food and beverage manufacturers to reduce sugar and calories with no bitter aftertaste.
