First all-natural, zero-calorie fruit concentrate sweetener released

BioVittoria - Fruit SweetnessBioVittoria, the world’s largest processor of the monk fruit, just released the first all-natural zero-calorie fruit concentrate sweetener to be Generally Recognized as Safe by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA): Fruit-Sweetness™

What is it?

Fruit-Sweetness™ comes from the monk fruit, a traditional food of South East Asia.  The zero-calorie sweetness of monk fruit concentrate comes from naturally occurring compounds in the fruit that are up to 300 times sweeter than regular sugar.

So what does this mean?

300 times sweeter means just ¼ of a gram of Fruit-Sweetness™ can replace eight teaspoons of sugar.  So be on the look-out for everyday food items incorporating this snazzy new sweetener in as a natural alternative to artificial sweeteners.  Products like juice drinks, yogurts, and even cereals will aim to deliver the same great taste, with the all-natural, healthy sweetness of the monk fruit.
