Meet the Magical Fruit — Monk Fruit
It’s the secret behind our sweetness. The monk fruit packs a lot of power into a small package. The extract is nearly 300 times sweeter than sugar, so a little bit adds a lot of naturally sweet flavor. It’s why our low-glycemic ice creams have the same taste and texture as our regular flavors. In fact, in head-to-head taste tests, most people couldn’t tell them apart.
The monk fruit grows in remote highlands in Asia and is considered a national treasure in China, where it’s been grown for centuries in small family orchards. The Chinese have long used the monk fruit as a natural sweetener and as a way to treat diabetes and obesity.
Moderation is key when managing diabetes. By keeping track of sugars and carbs, you can allow yourself sweet treats. Here at Localicious Old Fashioned Ice Cream we provide food suitable for people with type 2 diabetes.
