Monk fruit, native to south-east Asia, is a member of the Cucurbitaceae family. It was first cultivated by Buddhist monks, and that’s where its name comes from. Monk fruit has been around since almost 800 years, and yet, it has only now found its way into the mainstream wellness industry. The antioxidants found in the Monk fruit are 150 to 250 times sweeter than table sugar but with none of the associated side effects.
What is Monk Fruit?
Monk fruit, also known as lo han guo, is harvested in southern parts of China. It appears like a small green melon, and unlike its appearance, it is anything but ordinary. Monk fruit has been a staple in traditional Chinese medicine since centuries. In the western world, however, it is the Monk fruit sweetener that has made its mark.
Extremely hard to store and import, Monk fruit is often used in its dry form. Extracts driven from the dried Monk fruit are used in the popular Monk fruit sweeteners that have zero calories, no carbohydrates and do not raise blood sugar levels. Unlike other artificial or zero-calorie sweeteners, it does not cause allergic reactions or bloating. Its popularity in the mass market has many vendors looking for Monk fruit supplement manufacturing.
The Health Benefits of Monk Fruit
A Sweetener for Diabetics
Monk fruit is a great alternative to table sugar for people with diabetes. It has no calories or carbs and does not increase the blood glucose levels. Add to that the fact that it does not have the typical side effects associated with other zero calorie, artificial sweeteners, and it may just be the best option available for diabetics. However, it should be kept in mind that a number of Monk fruit supplements available have several other compounds added to them that can increase blood sugar levels. It is important to choose Monk fruit sweeteners from a Monk fruit supplement manufacturing facility that does not add unnecessary additives.

Promoting Weight Loss
Monk fruit supplement manufacturing has also garnered a lot of attention in the weight loss industry. The sweeteners derived from the monk fruit have zero calories and no carbs. Replacing regular sugar with monk fruit supplements can significantly decrease the number of calories consumed in a day, especially for those with a sweet tooth. But then again, most of the deserts or drinks have ingredients, besides sugar, that can contribute to weight gain. So, it is important to keep an eye on other ingredients as well while replacing regular sugar with monk fruit sweeteners.
