Monk fruit, the new zero-calorie sweetener you need to know about

But all that sugar comes with a cost—not just to your waistline, but to your health.

What is Monk Fruit?
Monk fruit, also known as Luo Han Guo, is a small green melon that originated in southern China. The extract of the fruit is used as a natural sweetener and is up to 200 times sweeter than sugar. monk fruit extract contains zero calories and has a glycemic index of zero, making it a great alternative for those who are looking to reduce their sugar intake.
How to Use Monk Fruit
Monk fruit can be used just like sugar—in beverages, baking, and anywhere else you would normally use sugar. Because it is so much sweeter than sugar, you will need to use less of it to achieve the same level of sweetness. For example, if a recipe calls for 1 cup of sugar, you would only need 1/4 teaspoon of monk fruit extract to achieve the same level of sweetness.
