Monk fruit is a berry, similar to a small gourd, native to China where it has been utilized for digestion and immunity for centuries. In Western culture it has recently been utilized as a sweetener, containing virtually no calories as it does not absorb in the small intestine where most nutrients are assimilated. It is also up to 200x sweeter than sugar, making it perfect for those with sensitivities. Monk fruit is also a powerful prebiotic and antioxidant, helping to support a healthy gut microbiome.
