MonkSweet plus Monk Fruit-Stevia Sweetener builds on Steviva Ingredients expertise in natural sugar replacements. MonkSweet plus, a natural sweetening solution that brings together optimal levels of proprietary stevia, monk fruit (lo han guo) and erythritol, a sugar alcohol derived by microbial fermentation. This combination offers multiple advantages. Stevia and monk fruit are high intensity sweeteners, with about 150 to 250 times the sweetness of sucrose. The addition of erythritol tempers the sweet intensity for a 1:2 plugin replacement for sucrose or HFCS. This proprietary blend of SteviaSweet 95-60, MonkSweet monk fruit extract and Erysweet erythritol delivers a naturally sweet, minimal calorie solution. The sweetness profile is rounded and full with mouth-feel similar to sugar. It is twice as sweet as sugar.
Flavor is the biggest payback for food developers. On its own, stevia can have a bitter note. Monk fruit is a natural flavor enhancer that helps mask off flavors in stevia and in other ingredients as well. Erythritol contributes mild cooling effect. Overall, sweetness delivery is clean and neutral.
