Wonder how this stuff will work out?
Good topic, Monk fruit, it’s the latest craze.
“The pure mogroside mix extracted from the S. grovesnori fruit is 300 times sweeter than sugar. Pure mogroside-5 can be up to 400 times as sweet” from wiki pedia.
S. grovesnori aka monk fruit.
You’re getting a “calorie free” sweetener because the flavor is so intense. I suspect enough would register a calorie. After all calorie free just means “we couldn’t measure it” based off a standard serving.
Everything looks to be up and up on it, however there’s 2 grams of carbs per serving, which is 1 packet.
I’d be curious on what the insulin response is upon consuming.
