Monk Fruit Extract Introduction

What is Monk fruit extract?

Monk fruit, well known for its natural health and sweet properties, is a perennial vine belonging to the Cucurbitaceae family and has heart-shaped, dioecious leaves that bloom in summer and bear fruit in autumn.

Monk Fruit extract contains a selective concentration of sweetening agents obtained from Monk fruit. Siraitia grosvenorii is the scientific name of Monk fruit. Water extraction and filtration process are used to extract the Monk fruit to obtain Monk fruit extract. Other names of Monk fruit extract are Luo Han Guo, Siraitia grosvenorii, mogrosides, Mogroside extract, lakanto monk fruit sweetener, etc.

Constituents of Monk Fruit Extract

The naturally found sweetening components of Monk Fruit belong to a triterpenoid group of chemicals named mogrosides. Almost 0.55% to 0.65% mogrosides are present in fresh fruit, and 2.5% mogrosides are obtained from dried Monk fruit. Monk fruit extract containing a sweetening component is mogroside V. Almost 1.5–2% mogroside-V is present in the dried Monk fruit extract. The sweetness of Monk fruit extract is comparable to 250 times the sweetness of sucrose. However, the concentration of mogroside V content may vary by 25%, 45%, and 55% depending upon the manufacturing process.

Other significant constituents of Monk Fruit extract are mogroside IV, V, and VI, siamenoside I, and 11-oxo-mogroside V. All these constituents are responsible for a high level of sweetness. Monk fruit also contains essential oil, saccharides, proteins, vitamins, and flavors.

Monk fruit vs. Stevia

Monk fruit used to prepare sweeteners does not spike blood sugar levels. Moreover, zero-calorie monk fruit sweeteners support weight management. Monk fruit extract is used to prepare sweeteners with no side effects, as is often found in artificial sweeteners. However, monk fruit cultivation is difficult and needs to import from native places. Monk fruit is not easily available. Therefore, Monk fruit is an expensive source of sweeteners. Some sweet-tooth lovers may not prefer to use Monk fruit extract as an alternative because of its fruity taste and unpleasant aftertaste.

Stevia is a calorie-free sweetener and a good sweetening alternative for an obese individual. Stevia usually does not increase blood sugar levels. Stevia is available in liquid, powder, and granule forms. Stevia is relatively more expensive than sugar. Excessive stevia consumption can cause gas, bloating, and nausea. The licorice flavor of stevia may not blend with all types of sweet recipes. The bitter aftertaste of stevia often restricts the vast use of this sweetener.

Benefits of Mogrosides

Mogrosides, as key ingredients in Luo Han Guo fruit, are considered a better alternative for table sugar, which may bring higher blood pressure, inflammation, weight gain, diabetes, and fatty liver disease when excessive intake. The sweetener is made into a mainstream sugar additive, contributing to its natural health benefits. FDA has approved that mogrosides are safe for human consumption since 1996.

Promote weight loss

Dried, powdered monk fruit extract serves nearly zero calories per serving. Mogrosides are the phytochemicals present in the monk fruit responsible for its sweet taste and also showed weight reduction benefits in a preclinical trial after feeding the study participants in a high-fat diet.

Sweetener for people with diabetes

Monk fruit extract is a safe sweetener for diabetes patients. The sweetness of Monk fruit extract is not due to sugar composition. Therefore, it does not raise blood glucose levels. The mogrosides may act as an insulin-stimulating agent that improves sugar transportation in the bloodstream to manage blood sugar levels.

Acts as an anti-inflammatory and coolant

Traditional Chinese medicine uses Monk fruit extract to treat heat stroke and fever. Monk fruit extract has a coolant effect that helps to soothe a sore throat. The anti-inflammatory property of Monk fruit may effective in cancer prevention.
