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 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.
Why Use Besti Monk Fruit Sweetener With Allulose?
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
✅ Dissolves like sugar – unlike sugar alcohols!
✅ Browns like sugar – unlike most sweeteners!
…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 exactly like 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 and sugar in your own blind taste test.
Many sugar alternatives have a chemical or bitter aftertaste, but our monk fruit sweetener does not. Unlike erythritol, it also does not have any cooling sensation.
