What Is Besti?
Besti is Wholesome Yum’s line of natural, sugar-free sweeteners – they are Nature’s Sugar Replacement. We carry premium, non-GMO pure erythritol and allulose, as well as our signature Besti monk fruit blends with erythritol or allulose, for easy 1:1 sugar alternatives in granulated and powdered form.
What Is Monk Fruit Extract?
Monk fruit, also known as luo han guo, is a small Asian melon that has been used in Chinese medicine for centuries. Monk fruit extract is derived by crushing the fruit, then drying the juice into a concentrated powder that has no calories, carbs or sugar.
Monk fruit extract is extremely sweet, which comes from an antioxidant in the fruit called Mogroside V. It’s very concentrated (between 150 and 400 times as sweet as sugar!), so we combine it with erythritol to make a 1:1 sugar replacement.
Different brands of monk fruit extract come with different levels of Mogroside V, which affects how sweet they are and whether they have any aftertaste. Our monk fruit extract is the highest grade, with 50% Mogroside V and NO aftertaste.
What Is Erythritol?
Erythritol is a natural sweetener that we can’t metabolize [*], which means it tastes like sugar without spiking our blood sugar. Found in fruits and vegetables, it’s 70% as sweet as sugar.
Erythritol is part of the family of sugar alcohols, which are found in nature, but it is unique compared to others such as sorbitol or maltitol. Erythritol is the only one that has a glycemic index of zero and is easier to digest.
Why Use Besti Monk Fruit Sweetener With Erythritol?
Besti is nature’s sugar replacement. It has all the benefits of using sugar…
✅ Sweet like sugar – replaces sugar cup-for-cup!
✅ Tastes like sugar – with no aftertaste!
✅ Bakes like sugar
…But unlike sugar, there is no blood sugar spike and crash, fat storage, tooth decay, or other negative effects of sugar.
What Does Besti Taste Like?
Besti monk fruit sweetener tastes like sugar! Many sugar alternatives have a chemical or bitter aftertaste, but our monk fruit sweetener does not. With 50% Mogroside V, there is no aftertaste whatsoever.
Some people say there is a mild cooling sensation from the erythritol, which is not unpleasant and not usually noticeable when using it in cooking and baking. It’s particularly hard to detect in our monk fruit blend.
