All-natural and All-purpose
Lakanto® CLASSIC is a zero-calorie sugar substitute that tastes and cooks like sugar, but with one big difference: its zero calories and zero glycemic index won’t affect your blood sugar levels.
Lakanto® CLASSIC can be used just like regular sugar – it adds clean sweetness to coffee or tea, baked goods, fruit salads and much more!
This latest addition to the Lakanto® family is great for cooking as it does not alter the taste or colour of your food.
New Lakanto® CLASSIC
Thanks to an extra-pure Monk Fruit extract made from early-harvest fruit, Lakanto® CLASSIC has a clean and transparent sweetness with no aftertaste. The crisp flavor and texture are so close to real sugar – you’ll be amazed! Unlike bland, powdery sweeteners, Lakanto® resembles natural sugar and has no aftertaste. The Monk Fruit Extract has been acquired using a cold water extraction method. Lakanto use no chemicals in this process, only water.
Lakanto® CLASSIC is made from natural ingredients and contains no colours, preservatives or additives of any kind.
100% Natural, Vegan Ingredients
Lakanto® CLASSIC is a proprietary blend of two special ingredients, Erythritol and Monk Fruit (Luo Han Guo). Erythritol is a sugar alcohol produced through the fermentation of non-GMO certified corn. It exists in many foods such as grapes, mushrooms, cheese, wine and beer.
The other ingredient – high purity Monk Fruit (Luo Han Guo) extract – is what makes Lakanto® White so unique. Grown mainly around Guilin Mountains in southern China, this prized fruit has been used for thousands of years, earning it the nickname, “The Longevity Fruit.”
Monk Fruit (Luo Han Guo) is often used as a sweetener on its own, but it is impractical due to its intense sweetness and strong taste.
In 1996, using a patented process, SARAYA became the first and only company to successfully integrate Monk Fruit (Luo Han Guo) into a tabletop sweetener, creating a delicious one-of-a-kind product as sweet as sugar. Lakanto® also lacks the bitterness often associated with Monk Fruit (Luo Han Guo)-based sweeteners.
Lakanto® CLASSIC goes the extra step, using a higher-purity extract from early-harvest Monk Fruit to achieve a clean, sugar-like taste.
Sugar-free Cooking Made Easy
Since Lakanto® has been formulated to match the sweetness of sugar as closely as possible, you don’t have to change your recipes. It’s easy to measure and replaces sugar one-to-one.
Lakanto® does not absorb moisture, even with high heat and humidity so it won’t harden with age.
A Revolutionary Sweetener
Lakanto® CLASSIC brings you everything you need from a sugar replacement – zero calories, zero glycemic index, same sweetness and taste as sugar and wide range of use and delicious flavour.
The LAKANTO® Story
OVER A THOUSAND YEARS AGO
in remote mountain highlands of Asia, a group of Buddhist monks called the Luohan achieved enlightenment through meditation, prayer and pure living. On the slopes of a primeval forest, the monks discovered and cultivated a rare fruit prized for its sweetness. This scared fruit was named Monk Fruit, or Luohan Guo, after its devoted caretakers and was used in elixirs to increase chi, or life energy.
Monk Fruit was used for centuries in eastern traditional herbalism to increase chi and well-being, earning it the nickname "The Immortals' Fruit". We still grow and harvest Monk Fruit for LAKANTO® in the same pristine area and according to traditional and environmental methods.
Why LAKANTO® is the Best
Unlike most fruits, whose sweetness comes from fructose, Monks 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 sugar or insulin, making it a perfect sweetener for blood sugar and weight management.
Born from a proprietary mixture of the highest purity Monk Fruit extract & non-GMO Erythritol, LAKANTO® is a delicious all-natural zero calorie, zero glycemic sweetener with the sumptuous rich taste of sugar.
