MONK FRUIT – LUO HAN GUO
Luo han guo, aka monk fruit, is a natural alternative to sugar used by the Chines for hundreds of years. Living in Hong Kong has given me the chance to learn more about this longevity ingredient that has zero calories, zero carbs and zero fat. It has no impact on blood sugar levels yet is 300 times sweeter than sugar. Monk fruit is a safe alternative to sugar for diabetics.
Monk fruit is rich in vitamin C and antioxidants, boosts the immune system and is a natural anti-histamine. Each winter families in China drink teas, soups and traditional herbal medicine made with the addition of monk fruit to treat coughs and respiratory illnesses. The locals believe luo han guo is an ingredient to use daily to prolong life.
I am lucky enough to find monk fruit at my local market in Hong Kong and add one or two “seeds” to sweeten my teas, chia seed puddings and homemade desserts. If you would like to try it, place your order and I will pop it in the mail for you.
