What Others Say About Besti Monk Fruit Allulose Blend
I have tried every non-sugar sweetener option out there and have FINALLY found one I can continue to use. I can’t tolerate the aftertaste that is present in every other product I’ve tried, but Besti is amazing. I can use it in anything I normally use sugar in and can’t taste the difference. This is the first product that TRULY has no aftertaste. Not even in my coffee or sweet tea! I have since ordered several other Besti products and have not been disappointed by any of them. I would HIGHLY recommend these products to anyone trying to cut sugar from their diet without sacrificing taste! It really is amazing!
“This is the first product that TRULY has NO AFTERTASTE.”
I am so thankful for this product for baking! I have used other sweeteners and ran into the problem of the “cooling” sensation that you get with some of the other sweetness. I have not had an issue with this sweetener! I love that this is a blend, too – I’ve tried the sweeteners individually and still had the problem, but in the mix, it fixes all the issues!
Cookies were the worst for me, and I was really missing them since on keto, but now I can enjoy them again! Today I made peanut butter and snickerdoodle cookies, and they were both phenomenal, and there was no cooling effect after they cooled down! So wonderful! Thank you so much for this product! I am excited to try some of your other products now! Your products make keto baking fun again!
“I was really missing cookies on keto but now I can enjoy them again!”
I am not a fan of sugar substitutes, at all! This one, however, is something very different. I asked my husband and my nephew both to do a blind taste, and they were both shocked. My nephew kept going back to the Wholesome Yum and telling me he could not believe it was not sugar. The taste is spot on! I am looking forward to baking with this product. I never thought I would be able to find a sugar substitute that I would actually like. This one is a pleasant surprise! I love it so much; I can’t wait to order the brown sugar version. Fantastic product and great customer service. Win, win!
“I asked my husband and my nephew to do a blind taste and they were both shocked!”
This stuff rocks! Many sugar free or sugar alcohol sugars pack a pungent and unpleasant aftertaste. I can’t stand stevia, but we all have cravings that need tending to if you want to stick to a keto lifestyle change. This stuff definitely does the trick. I’ve made Maya’s chocolate protein muffins and the mug cake using this sugar replacement and it’s hands down the best I’ve come across. She serves high-quality ingredients with super amazing recipes. You can tell she works hard to provide recipes that are great tasting. I can’t wait to try this in many more of Maya’s recipes!
“It’s hands down the best I’ve come across.”
I made two batches of cookies, one with regular sugar and one with Besti Monk Fruit sweetener with Allulose. I tried several from each batch and literally could not tell the difference. Did a taste test with two of my friends, and they could not tell what was different about the cookies! I am so excited to find a sweetener that won’t ruin my diet but allows me the joy of a sweet now and again.

Missing Your Favorite Sweet Foods?
Besti Sugar Substitute Tastes, Bakes, Browns, And Dissolves Just Like Sugar!
Whether you are reducing your sugar intake, following a low carb lifestyle, or trying to lose weight, you don’t have to miss sweet foods and desserts anymore!
Use Besti sweetener cup-for-cup to replace granulated sugar in your favorite sweet recipes, including cookies, muffins, cakes, and more. It produces soft, moist baked goods.
Here at Wholesome Yum, Maya (our founder) develops each product, and our standards for taste and texture are extremely high. Many sugar substitutes have a chemical or bitter aftertaste, but our monk fruit sweetener has no aftertaste whatsoever. Unlike erythritol, it also does not have any cooling sensation.
In fact, Besti tastes so much like sugar that we challenge you to tell the difference in your own blind taste test. The only difference is the granules are a bit finer.
Also, unlike other granulated monk fruit sweeteners, Besti browns, caramelizes, and dissolves just like sugar does. No more gritty texture in your baking!
So I’m dealing w gestational diabetes and having to find all these different alternatives to feel like I’m living a normal life. I found the recipe for the blueberry muffins from the Wholesome Yum recipe page and tried it out… however, at the time, I didn’t have any of the Besti sweeteners. Let’s just say… not my best batch of muffins. So I decided to bite the bullet and get the Besti and try again. I’m not keen on trying things without researching the item first, but I did it anyway. Also, I’ve tried baking w things like stevia, and it was completely disgusting, so I had my concerns. LET ME JUST SAY! The muffins came out amazing! They were so delicious and moist and very spongy. I am now hooked on the brand in a general sense and am in love w the vanilla liquid sweetener as well. I doubt I’ll actually go back to regular white sugar even after I give birth; it was that good!
“I doubt I’ll ever go back to regular white sugar. It was that good!”
How Our Monk Fruit Sweetener Compares
Wondering how Besti compares to other sugar substitutes and monk fruit sweeteners? There’s a big difference!
Allulose is the only natural sweetener whose taste I enjoy. There is no nasty aftertaste like with stevia or sucralose. I enjoy it in my coffee, iced tea, and hot tea. I mix it with lemon juice and add water and ice for a homemade lemonade that’s free of processed junk. I have also used it to make brownies and muffins — the result is deliciousness without the calories and harmful effects of sugar. Thank you, Wholesome Yum — you have a customer for life!

100% Natural Ingredients
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.
Monk Fruit Extract
Monk fruit, also known as luo han guo, is a small Asian melon that has been used by Buddhist monks and 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.
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.
We Don’t Cut Corners With Our Ingredients
You’ll never find artificial preservatives, artificial sweeteners (like sucralose or aspartame), sugar alcohols (like erythritol or sorbitol), or artificial flavors or colors (like caramel color) in our products.
Having Digestive Issues With Other Sweeteners?
Our Monk Fruit Allulose Blend Is Gentle On Stomachs
Wholesome Yum products, including Besti, are sweetened only with monk fruit and allulose — NEVER sugar alcohols!
Unlike other sweeteners that don’t metabolize in our digestive systems (such as sugar alcohols or artificial sweeteners), Besti is the only zero-calorie sweetener that won’t cause digestive distress — all while tasting just like sugar.
I have had digestive issues with every non-sugar sweetener I tried. I am so thankful for the monk fruit allulose blend — I don’t know what I would do without it. I love the taste and the fact that it doesn’t give me issues. I also love her recipes which taste “normal” and don’t require buying ingredients that I have to go out and find or order before I can make them. I always look here first for any recipe I want to make, particularly the desserts, because I always have the sweeteners on hand. I’m still learning new ways of using the sweetener – I also use the keto honey and the maple syrup.
“I have had digestive issues with every non-sugar sweetener I’ve tried. I am so grateful for the monk fruit allulose blend — I don’t know what I would do without it.”
First off, when I had a question on which sweetener to buy, Maya quickly responded and educated me about my misinformation (Thanks again, Maya!). I am extremely sensitive to erythritol, so I was about to give up on sweets. Fortunately, I found Besti! I ordered both the Monk Fruit + Allulose Blend (crystallized and powered), so when my package arrived, I dashed into the kitchen to make lemon bars. Holy moly, I could not tell it wasn't made with real sugar, and they were divine. No aftertaste whatsoever! I've also made snickerdoodles since, and although the flavor is phenomenal, I believe allulose results in baked goods that are extra soft and tender, so if you're looking for crispy or crunchy textures, allulose is not your go to. I guess I will just have to use the Monk Fruit + Erythritol Blend on recipes where crunch matters. But next stop, cinnamon rolls! I'm certain the Monk Fruit + Allulose Blend will be perfect for them. Can't wait!
This is hands down the best sweetener I have used. In my LCHF lifestyle I feel like I have tried every sweetener under the sun. My parents want to hire me as their healthy dessert maker and my kids like my sugar free treats better than regular sugar desserts. This sweetener makes low carb living an actual lifestyle. I didn’t think it was possible, but trust me. It is!
I have tried every non sugar sweetener option out there and have FINALLY found one i can continue to use. I can’t tolerate the aftertaste that is present every other product i’ve tried, but Besti is amazing. I can use it in anything i normally use sugar in and can’t taste the difference.

I would HIGHLY recommend these products to anyone trying to cut sugar from there diet without sacrificing taste! It really is amazing!
I don't have to worry using the Besti brand sweeteners! Ice cream, cakes, and pies look great and taste delicious! I'm waiting for a brown sugar blend!
Wholesome Yum’s Besti Crystallized Monk Fruit with Allulose blend has been most helpful to my keto success. I can’t tolerate any kind of sugar alcohol or blend that includes it, so I was really excited to learn about Besti. I ordered a bag to sample it, and it did not disappoint! I used it in my coffee—the ultimate test for me—and the taste was excellent, with no aftertaste like artificial sweeteners have. I love that it measures 1:1 like sugar, so substitutions are easy. I’ve used the Besti Monk Fruit Sweetener with Allulose – Crystallized as a sugar substitute in a wide variety of foods, from dressings to desserts, with first-rate results. I made a pie at Christmas time that my whole family loved and ate, requesting that I add it to every year’s holiday menu. I’ve had equally good luck with the Besti Monk Fruit Sweetener With Allulose – Powdered and Besti Brown Monk Fruit Sweetener With Allulose varieties. I signed up for the subscription orders and couldn’t be happier with the products!

Your products make keto baking fun again!
I made cheese cake with this using the no bake Cheesecake recipe from Wholesome Yum for Thanksgiving. No one believed me it was keto cheese cake! They all want it again at Christmas. No aftertaste!
I have tried every sugar replacement in the grocery stores and never liked any of them, especially the ones with the weird cooling aftertaste. Well, Besti has been a life changer as it really does taste just like sugar. I can finally enjoy some of my favorite sweet treats and not worry about blood sugar spikes!
This is more just to remind folks that everyone's body responds to things differently. I've only used this sparingly in coffee, etc and I find that while my system has no problem with erythritol, allulose destroys me. Very ill on very little. I've been keto 5 years, so I've tried all the sugar substitutes. For my particular body, this one wreaks absolute havoc. I was hopeful because I had read that it only causes problems in massive amounts, but I haven't found that to be true for me. Just a head's up to tread carefully the first few times.
Hi Jessica, Sorry to hear you experienced this! There are a few people that do have this reaction to allulose, but it's very rare -- much more rare than erythritol side effects. Still, that's one of the reasons we provide several different sweetener options. Our plain erythritol might work better for you: https://www.wholesomeyumfoods.com/shop/sweeteners/erythritol/erythritol-sweetener/ ~Maya
