100% Natural No Calorie Sweetener Nectresse Made from Monk Fruit
I am always a little reticent about zero calorie sweeteners, as I don't think they are the solution to weight loss. Healthy eating with lots of raw foods and exercise are the solution.

NECTRESSE Natural No Calorie Sweetener is 100% natural and made from monk fruit.
NECTRESSE™ Natural No Calorie Sweetener is a combination of deliciously sweet Monk Fruit Extract blended with other natural sweeteners (erythritol, sugar and molasses) to bring you the rich sweet taste of sugar without all the calories...
Erythritol is an all-natural, sugar alcohol that is naturally fermented from sugars and is found in many vegetables and fruits. Erythritol contributes zero calories per serving of NECTRESSE™ Sweetener. Consuming erythritol from NECTRESSE™ Sweetener is not expected to result in laxative or other gastrointestinal effects that are known to sometimes occur with other sugar alcohols...
Monk Fruit is a round, green melon that grows on vines on remote mountaintops in central Asia. The fruit has been cultivated for centuries.

Monk Fruit Extract is about 150X sweeter than sugar and contributes zero calories per serving of NECTRESSE™ Natural No Calorie Sweetener.
This product is made by the makers of Splenda, which does concern me, but Nectresse does not contain any of the sucralose found in Splenda.
