Talking about monkfruit sweeteners, TV host, bestselling cookbook author, functional nutritionist and trainer Luke Hines says, "Monkfruit has changed the way I eat for the better because I can still enjoy my favorite foods, but in a way that makes it low carb, keto, so I don't have to compromise on my health goals. "
What is monk fruit?
Monk fruit gets its sweetness from antioxidants in the pulp (melon-like). The new sweetener has 93% fewer calories than sugar, no net carbohydrates, no glycemic effects and no fiber, maltodextrin, stevia, artificial sweeteners or flavors.
This makes it suitable for those on a gluten-free, diabetic, ketogenic, candida, paleo, vegan, and low-carb diet.
Speaking of diabetics …
