Why MonkSweet monk fruit sweetener?

Flavor Profile
MonkSweet pure monk fruit extract has a neutral flavor in most applications, although it may impart a slight melon-rind note. Sweetness comes from a group of compounds called mogrisides within the fruit from the Siraitia grosvenorii plant. Chemically, mogrosides are triterpenoidal saponins. There are five numbered mogrosides, as well as other glycosides, and each has distinct sweetness characteristics. Mogroside-5 is predominant. Sweetness of individual mogrosides can vary up to 400 times the sweetness of sugar.
