Another option you can use to combat your sugar intake is with a sweetener that has zero calories and contains natural sugars – Monk Fruit. Consuming it does not raise blood sugar levels making it a perfect alternative for diabetes patients.
Also known as “luo han guo” or “Buddha fruit”, it can help with losing weight, and reduce the amount of fats and lipids in the blood. Rich in vitamin C, monk fruit can also be used for anti-ageing, anti-cancer, and skincare purposes.
Monk fruit is also often made into a savoury-tasting beverage to treat cough, constipation and sore throat among others.
