Monk Fruit Sweetener Luo Han Guo Extract
The Luo Han Guo plant is cultivated for its fruit, whose extract is nearly 300 times sweeter than sugar and has been used as a low-calorie sweetener. The sweet taste of the fruit comes mainly from mogrosides, a group of triterpene glycosides that make up about 1% of the flesh of the fresh fruit.Through solvent extraction, a powder containing 80% mogrosides can be obtained, the main one being mogroside-5 (esgoside). It is used for Traditional Chinese medicine and applies to cure disease, such as high blood pressure, pulmonary tuberculosis, asthma, gastritis, whooping cough, acute & chronic tracheitis and acute & chronic tonsillitis, etc. Luo Han Guo fruit and its extract are dual-use in therapeutic and health products. At present, Luo Han Guo is allowed to use as a food additive in these countries: Japan, Korea, Thailand, Singapore, Europea, USA (GRAS Approved) , Australia and China, etc.
