Whether you are starting a keto diet or just want to avoid the negative effects of sugar, there are lots of reasons to try sugar-free sweeteners. Today there are many sugar substitutes to choose from and each all has its own pros and cons. We have chosen what we think are the best sweeteners to make our exclusive one-to-one sugar substitute.
Blend sweetener is made with a blend of erythritol and monk fruit. There are many pros to both monk fruit and erythritol, but also a few cons that we have to work around to bring you the best sugar substitute on the planet! Below, we dive into the specifics to answer all the questions we hear most often.
We use it in our blend sweetener Monkfruit as a way to make a convenient one-to-one sugar replacement.
It's first important to understand that neither monk fruit, nor erythritol can match the sweetness of sugar by themselves. Monk fruit is much too sweet, being about 200-300 times sweeter than sugar; and Erythritol is only about 70% as sweet as sugar. Because of this, the combination of the two (in a very special recipe) is where the magic happens in matching the flavor of sugar. Monk fruit is the key ingredient.
We believe giving up sugar is one of the best choices we can make for our health. And a one-to-one sugar substitute is the most simple solution for people starting a healthier, sugar-free life without disrupting their normal cooking and baking routines.
Erythritol is a popular, all-natural sweetener. Erythritol belongs to a class of compounds called sugar alcohols. Many different sugar alcohols are used by food producers. These include xylitol, sorbitol and maltitol.
Most sugar alcohols function as low-calorie sweeteners in sugar-free or low-sugar products. They’re actually found in small amounts in nature, especially in fruits and vegetables. The way these molecules are structured gives them the ability to stimulate the sweet taste receptors on your tongue.
But the real benefit of erythritol comes from how different it is from other sugar alcohols. It contains fewer calories and zeroes net carbs, making it friendly for a variety of lifestyles, including keto! Erythritol has only 5% of the calories of sugar.

Table Sugar: 4 calories per gram
Xylitol: 2.4 calories per gram
Erythritol: 0.24 calories per gram
Erythritol goes virtually unrecognized through the digestive system! See, we humans don't have the enzymes needed to break down erythritol. It’s absorbed into the bloodstream and then excreted unchanged in the urine.
Erythritol has been studied for toxicity and serious side effects. No research or testing has resulted in negative side effects. “Erythritol administered orally to humans was rapidly absorbed from the gastrointestinal tract and quantitatively excreted in the urine without undergoing metabolic change.” Every human body is different and for some people, erythritol can cause digestive issues because it is processed when it reaches the colon. It hasn’t been shown to have serious side effects, but we do recommend starting on it slowly rather than in large quantities.
There are all kinds of sweeteners you could try when going off sugar. And if you're reading this article, it's likely you've tried a lot of them! Some are too sweet, and some aren't sweet enough. Thanks to our special recipe of monk fruit and erythritol we are confident, and you can be too, that blend Monkfruit Sweetener has the best sugar-like taste on the planet! But even more importantly, we choose erythritol because it meets our allergen, health, and dietary standards.
One last thing to note though, we also provide products that do not contain erythritol like pure monk fruit extract Mogroside V series because pure monk fruit extract is obviously more costly compared with the blended sweetener we mentioned above.
But if your goal is to replace sugar with the best-tasting and cost-friendly sugar replacement available, then monk fruit Sweetener—with its perfect blend of monk fruit and erythritol—is sure to become your new best friend.
