Lakanto Monk Fruit Sweetener contains zero net carbs, zero calories, and is zero glycemic. It is made from the sacred monk fruit also known as "The Immortals' Fruit". This is believed in eastern traditional herbalism to increase chi (life energy). Matching the sweetness of sugar, it gives you a healthy cup-for-cup alternative to ordinary baking and cooking ingredients. This sweetener also works for ketogenic, vegan, gluten-free, and paleo lifestyles.
