Lo Han Guo is the fruit of Momordica grosvenorii, a plant cultivated in the mountains of southern China. Mogrosides, which are water extracted from the Lo Han fruit, offer a pleasant taste, without affecting blood sugar.
Lo Han Guo Mogrosides are up to 250x sweeter than sugar.
Xylitol is as sweet as sugar, having 40% less calories.
Xylitol is a sweet-tasting, naturally-occurring polyol (which is a type of carbohydrate) that has a distinct cooling sensation in the mouth. Xylitol is metabolized differently from conventional sugar, and does not have the same effects as ordinary table sugar: moreover, it has fewer calories. Inulin-FOS (FructoOligoSaccharides) is a highly-soluble fiber.
