- At Lakanto, our mission is to Bring Chi to Life by inspiring people to reach their highest potential in health and wellness by creating products that are sugar-free, delicious, and nutritious. Born from a proprietary mixture of the highest purity of Monk Fruit extract and non-GMO Erythritol, Lakanto looks like, tastes like, and works like sugar all while being an all-natural, zero-calorie, zero-glycemic sweetener. The product lines provide a variety of candied nuts, sweeteners, mixes, and chocolate ready for beginner and seasoned bakers.
Unlike most fruits, whose sweetness comes from fructose, Monk Fruit’s sweetness comes from natural mogrosides that are 300 times sweeter than sugar. Modern research shows that Monk Fruit extract does not elevate blood glucose or insulin, making it a perfect sugar alternative.
