Jarrow Formulas, Lo Han Sweet, 2.8 oz (80 g) (Discontinued Item)
- All Natural
- Great Tasting
- Lo Han Fruit Juice Concentrate
- Lo Han Guo & Xylitol
Lo Han Guo is the fruit of Momordica grosvenorii, a plant cultivated in the mountains of southern China. Mogrosides, which are water extracted from the Lo Han fruit, offer a pleasant taste, without affecting blood sugar.
Lo Han Guo Mogrosides are up to 250x sweeter than sugar. Xylitol is as sweet as sugar, having 40% less calories.
Xylitol is a sweet-tasting, naturally occurring polyol (which is a type of carbohydrate) that has a distinct cooling sensation in the mouth. Xylitol is metabolized differently from conventional sugar, and does not have the same effects as ordinary table sugar: moreover, it has fewer calories. Inulin-FOS (FructoOligoSaccharides) is a highly soluble fiber.
Lo Han Sweet advantages:
- Low Glycemic Index.
- Heat Stable: Very stable under high temperature, and can be added to hot as well as cold foods. Suitable for cooking and baking.
- Low Calorie: 2 calories per 2 g serving (about 1/2 teaspoon).
Use Lo Han Sweet to enhance taste. Mix with tea, coffee or other beverages, desserts and foods as desired.

Lo Han Sweet
I found this product to be exactly what I expected, meaning it was very satisfying. I had read about the health benefits of Lo Han in a medical journal and decided that I should replace my sugar intake with it. I have digestion problems with many sugars in that they don't break done very well in my system. This is not the case with Lo Han. Again, I am very satisfied.
Less is better than more

strong sweetener - use less. Enhances flavor in foods and drinks if used with a light touch - too much and the flavor is too strong, still tastes WAY better than an overdose of stevia!
I dind't liked very much

I like the extract more but it is ok.

It tastes artificial and not nice at all. I've bought Trimedica SlimSweet several times, which I love, so I wanted to try another Lo Han product. I was very disappointed with Jarrow's.
