What Is Besti?

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 allulose 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 Allulose?
Allulose is a natural sugar that we can’t metabolize [*], which means it tastes and acts like sugar without spiking our blood sugar. Found in fruit, maple syrup and other plants, it’s 70% as sweet as sugar.
The name “allulose” sounds like glucose, fructose, lactose, and other sugar names, because it’s in the same family. But unlike these sugars, we can’t process allulose, which means it has zero calories and zero net carbs.
What Other Ingredients Are In Besti Brown Monk Fruit Sweetener?
In addition to our signature Monk Fruit Allulose Blend, our Besti Brown Sweetener contains just 2 other ingredients:
- Vegetable glycerin to give it the same moisture that brown sugar has
- Natural flavors to give it the taste and color of brown sugar. In fact, we use natural flavors from real maple!

What Does Besti Brown Taste Like?
Besti Brown Monk Fruit Sweetener tastes exactly like brown sugar! The allulose in it is in fact a rare type of sugar (minus the carbs and calories), and the monk fruit extract increases sweetness to match sugar. With 50% Mogroside V, there is no aftertaste whatsoever. In fact, we challenge you to tell the difference between Besti Brown and brown sugar in your own blind taste test.
Many brown sugar alternatives have a chemical or bitter aftertaste, or worse, they have inadequate moisture content or a very weak flavor. Our monk fruit sweetener does not have any aftertaste or cooling sensation, and most importantly, it’s moist like brown sugar and is naturally flavored, for the same brown sugar flavor you know and love.
