Purefruit is an alternative natural sweetener that is made out of monk fruit extract. A member of the melon family, the monk fruit grows in remote Asian highlands and his highly prized in China, where it has been grown in small family orchards for centuries. Now, Purefruit is ensuring that the monk fruit's attributes are available to modern consumers looking for a healthier alternative to sugar.

To create the sweetener, fresh monk fruit is first crushed to release its sweet juices. The fruit is then mixed with hot water to make a sweet infusion, which is then filtered before sweet components called mogrosides are extracted. The concentrate is then spray-dried.

The end result is a calorie-free sweetener that can be up to 200 times sweeter than sugar but is far less detrimental to your health.
