About Julian Bakery’s Pure Monk™

Monk fruit extract is potent—about 100-250 times more intense than table sugar. So, you won’t need much, which saves you money!
Pure Monk is a 100% pure extract powder. This is important since many commercially marketed lo han guo-based sweeteners blend monk fruit with unhealthy fillers or sugars, such as such as dextrose (which is a corn-derived carbohydrate—not good!), sugar (yes, actual sugar!) or molasses.

How to Use Pure Monk

You can blend Pure Monk powder directly into liquid, or sprinkle it over any food that needs an extra blast of sweetness. It’s simple to use, and fits perfectly into a Paleo lifestyle!
But remember, it’s more intense than regular sugar. In fact, most people find you only need one gram of monk fruit extract to create the same sweet taste as eight teaspoons of sugar.
Monk fruit extract has a mildly fruit aroma and dissolves fully in water, making it the perfect way to enhance coffee, tea or protein shakes. Try just a tiny bit at first, since it’s so sweet! After a bit of trial-and-error, it will be easy to determine how much you need to sweeten your favorite smoothie or drink.
Or, use it in place of sugar or maple syrup. Try Pure Monk over Paleo-friendly pancakes, French toast, or in baked goods—monk fruit extract is heat-stable and fine for baking! Again, experiment with very small quantities of monk fruit extract at first, to ensure you get the sweetness you want without overdoing it.
You may also see monk fruit extract in sugar-free and no-sugar-added foods, such as Paleo Cookies. Look for it on the label of your favorite Paleo foods!

Pure Monk and your Health

Monk fruit has been used as a traditional medicine in China for hundreds of years. Small wonder then that certain types of monk fruit extract have been shown to have free-radical-fighting antioxidant activity and anti-cancer effects. Monk fruit has many other positive health effects: it’s been shown to be anti-tussive (cough suppressing), phlegm-relieving, immunomodulatory (able to regulate or modify certain immune functions), liver-protecting, glucose-lowering, and antimicrobial.
Research has shown that monk fruit extract is safe and it’s approved for use in the United States. Make sure to choose a 100% pure extract to avoid unnatural fillers. Try it as part of a weight loss or Paleo plan—you’ll love it!

  1. Denise Colon

    love this Pure Monk Fruit extract…especially great for baking along with other more healthy alternatives like coconut or almond flour

  2. Weeds of Wisdom

    This is very sweet and I think a superb alternative to sugar and sugar-free substitutes. I had my doubts about taste but I put it in my coffee and tea and enjoy the flavor. There is a tiny scoop included in the container and I only need 1/4 scoop, this is going to last a while.

    I also like that THIS product is not mixed with any sugar alcohols, just pure monk fruit. Zero carbs!

  3. Rolly Johnson

    This stuff is insanely sweet with no calories and no after taste. Why are the big soft drink and desert industries not involved?

  4. Emily

    Love that a little bit goes a long way(this little tub is going to last forever!) and that it doesn’t have a strange aftertaste like many other sweeteners. It’s AMAZING that you made this available with no other sweeteners added to it. Thank you!! I’ve used it in coffee, tea, and hot cocoa. I’m experimenting with it in recipes although I find it difficult to get the amount right.
    I do wish you included more information on how to substitute this for other sweeteners in recipes as many things I make have very expensive ingredients and experimenting has led to some very, very expensive failures in the kitchen.

    Good afternoon, I would like to know, if it’s a 100 % pure since I have problems with erythritol and many brands blend it with monk fruit! I found it because of my stomach issues when I ate it 😔! Thanks for the information !!

      Yes, it’s pure monk fruit extract. (One Ingredient….that’s it)

  6. Maria C

    Fantastic. It is the first sugar substitute that I can tolerate that is actually healthy for you. I wish it was available in granulated form!

  7. Assen

    I find this to be great and I love the fact it’s made in the USA!

  8. Janet

    I love this sugar substitute. A little bit goes a long way.

    huge fan no aftertaste….perfect for Keto as it doesn’t affect blood ketone levels!

    I like Julian Bakery’s Monk Fruit for its purity and being a more trustworthy source. It is just as effective as their top versions at well-sweetening whatever you want to, nicely concentrated to best choose the right amount for a given food or beverage. I think Monk Fruit is not really known to most and gets overlooked, but is THE sweetener out there. It does such a powerful job that it can transform a yogurt’s so-so sweet into desert-level, pastry-shop-tasty sweet, so good I can skip the pie slice and be well satisfied by this lower caloried, healthier desert alternative. It blends well with most every food, not sticking out, compared to some other sweeteners I’ve past tried . Monk Fruit is a staple in my everyday snacking or meals – my go-to sweetener!

    What is the difference in Pure Monk ULTRA compared to this one? Thank you.

    • Julian Bakery, Inc.

      The Ultra is even sweeter and 75 servings.
