vitaSWEET a natural alternative to table sugar and high fructose corn syrup, that is 0 on the glycemic index, meaning that it has no effect on blood glucose levels.
vitaSWEET is formulated with two simple ingredients: monk fruit and erythritol. Monk fruit or luo han guo is native to southern China and northern Thailand, and has almost 300 times natural sweetness than that of sugar. It has been used for centuries in traditional Chinese medicine, first mentioned in the records of 14th century Buddhist monks. Erythritol is a naturally occurring sugar alcohol derived from fruits and plants. Vita Columbia’s unique blend of both monk fruit and erythritol is as sweet as sugar and can be used as a 1-to-1 replacement in recipes.
