Monk Fruit (Buddha Fruit) by Salud Viva is made up of the Buddha fruit, an unusual fruit famous for its intense sweetness without bitter aftertaste, it is exponentially sweeter than sugar, with high concentrations of fructose and glucose, but the sweetness comes from unique glycosides in the meat of the fruit.
The monk's fruit name might not be very common, but you may have heard of luo han guo, "Buddha fruit" or "fruit of longevity" as it is known in Thailand and China. These are all names for Siraitia grosvenoori, a vine in the pumpkin family that possesses a particularly valuable and powerful fruit.
In Thailand and China, it has been used for thousands of years as a medicinal remedy for a variety of diseases and as a food additive, that is, as a natural sweetener.
Unlike no other, the sweetness of the monk fruit comes from natural antioxidants called 'mogrosides', much sweeter than sugar and with fewer calories.
It is recommended to use less quantity than ordinary sugar to sweeten.
