Erythritol is a sugar alcohol that occurs naturally in some fruits such as grapes and melons, as well as fermented foods like wine and cheese. In fact, it even exists naturally in human tissues and body fluids. One key advantage of erythritol is that it doesn’t absorb in the body the way sugar does, and thus has no affect on blood sugar or insulin levels. And if that’s not enough, it’s also a guilt-free sweet solution at just 0.2 calories per gram!
Of our three smart sweeteners, you may be most familiar with stevia extract which comes from the stevia plant, a member of the sunflower family and native to South America. Used for centuries in Paraguay and Brazil for its intense sweet taste, stevia first came into widescale commercial use in the 1970s in Japan as a safe low-calorie alternative to artificial sweeteners in sweetening everything from beverages to baked goods. Although relatively new to the U.S., stevia has rapidly gained in popularity. With 300 times the sweetness of sugar, but no effect on your blood sugar levels, you can enjoy satisfying your sweet tooth without any regret.
Monk Fruit, also known as, Lo Han Guo is an ancient Chinese lemon-sized melon that was initially harvested by monks 800 years ago. It has traditionally been used to treat diabetes and obesity among other ailments. Unlike most fruits, monk fruit isn’t sweet due to its sugars. The fruit actually contains a unique type of antioxidant called mogroside that provides an intense sweetness, sometimes up to 300 times sweeter than sugar. With an extremely low caloric impact, monk fruit is the third and final component that makes up our fabulously guilt-free lite juices.
