Monk fruit

You may have noticed more health food brands offering monk fruit sweeteners in all sorts of varieties, including liquid droppers. It really picked up steam recently thanks to its zero-calorie profile and the fact that it is tremendously sweeter than sugar. In order to make this sweetener, the skin and seeds of the Monk Fruit are removed and crushed to extract the juice, which is then dried into a powder form. It is important to note that it can be between 100 to 250 times as sweet as regular sugar, so a tiny bit can make a difference. Many companies mix a bit of it in with other products to cut the sweetness.
