Pure 70:1 Monk Fruit Siraitia grosvenorii Extract
Monk fruit extract is indigenous to China and Indonesia and is one among seven species belonging to genus Siraitia. Among seven, Siraitia grosvenorii species is principally cultivated for more than 200 years in Guangxi province of China which accounts for more than 90% of the global production. The fruit of Siraitia grosvenorii is commonly known worldwide as monk fruit and regionally as Luo Han Guo. The plant is a perennial vine of the Cucurbitaceae family which produces a round green fruit. The chemical structures of the sweetening components naturally found in the fruit belong to the triterpenoid group of chemicals and are named mogrosides. These are present at 0.55–0.65% in the fresh fruit, and about 2.5% in the dried fruit of S. grosvenorii.
Monk fruit extract contains essential oil, saccharides, proteins, vitamins and flavons. It is also rich in several triterpene glycosides, commonly known as mogroside, having high biological effects and sweet taste. A group of mogroside principally contains mogroside IV, V and VI, siamenoside I and 11-oxo-mogroside V, considered to be mainly responsible for the strong sweetening property of monk fruit. The primary sweetening component of monk fruit extract, with a content of 1.5–2% in the dried fruit, is mogroside V, which is around 250 times as sweet as sucrose. The mogroside extract from ripe monk fruit could be an ideal replacement of sugar for diabetic and obese patients due to its high level of sweetness and low calorific value than sucrose.
