C'mon guys! My team couldn't figure it out... YET.... For soon we would realize that this may be the key to our plan for world domination buy priligy in australia and tasty, fizzy *healthy* drinks.
Monk fruit has been grown for hundreds of years on the mountain slopes of southern China. And since we have never been there, we get a pass for not really knowing about it.
Named after buddhist monks - who must be renowned for their love of sweets, despite their flat out rejection of my chocolate offerings on a backpacking trip to Thailand with my friend Hope - the extracts of this remarkable fruit are 300 - 400 times sweeter than cane sugar. And even more incredible is that it is considered non caloric, meaning NOT going to the hips.
a fantastic read But how is this possible? No wonder the monks were hiding them...
Monk fruit is not sweet due to natural sugars like most fruits. It contains powerful antioxidants called mogrosides, which are metabolized differently by the body than natural sugars. That’s why, despite their very sweet taste, these fruits contain no calories and have no effect on blood sugar.
So monk fruit is considered a SUPERFOOD with powerful anti-oxidants. It delivers remarkable health benefits (we're talking anti-cancer - see study) and it's non caloric and it's delicious. Truly a magical fruit!
