Formulate With MonkSweet LS!

MonkSweet LS is a proprietary blend of powdered monk fruit and stevia extract. This product blends rebaudioside A and mogroside V—a specific type of mogroside that is responsible for the sweetness in monk fruit. This is a triterpenoid glycoside isolated from the extract of the fruit. Blending these two glycosides in a precise amount creates a completely clean flavor that is intensely sweet—nearly 250 times sweeter than sugar with less off-notes than any other glycoside blend. Where MonkSweet LS really shines is in its ability to mask off-notes.

Interestingly, the proprietary blend of these two glycosides enables them to mask each other’s off-notes—notes that are reminiscent of licorice with stevia and notes of melon rind with monk fruit. This unique stack of rebaudioside A and mogroside V, produces positive allosteric modulation—extending the perception of sweetness through the entire flavor experience. If you are looking to mask the off-notes of dairy, astringent, or bitter compounds with neutral sweetness, MonkSweet LS will truly deliver. MonkSweet LS can be used as a standalone sweetener, or in conjunction with low intensity sweeteners and fibers.

When combined with low intensity sweeteners like erythritol or allulose, the sweetening blend provides a neutral flavor profile that can be used as a plug-and-play replacement for sugar. MonkSweet LS is non-GMO, kosher, and is available in both conventional and organic certified versions. Because our MonkSweet LS is derived without the use of chemicals, it can be used to support a clean label claim.
