Jarrow Formulas Lo Han Sweet Sweetener, 80g (1 Container (80g))

Lo Han Kuo 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 and sweet taste, without elevating blood sugar. Lo Han Kuo Mogrosides are up to 250x sweeter than sugar. Xylitol is a sweet tasting, naturally occurring polyol that a has distinct cooling sensation in the mouth. Xylitol is metabolized differently from conventional sugar and helps protect dental health by assisting to maintain a balance of oral beneficial flora. Xylitol is as sweet as sugar, having 40% less calories.
Pure xylitol is a white crystalline substance that looks and tastes like sugar. On food labels, xylitol is classified broadly as a carbohydrate and more narrowly as a polyol. Because xylitol is only slowly absorbed and partially utilized, a reduced calorie claim is allowed: 2.4 calories per gram or 40% less than other carbohydrates. Xylitol has been used in foods since the 1960’s. It is a popular sweetener for the diabetic diet in some countries. In the U.S., xylitol is approved as a food additive in unlimited quantity for foods with special dietary purposes. Over 25 years of testing in widely different conditions confirm that xylitol is the best sweetener for teeth. Xylitol use reduces tooth decay rates both in high-risk groups (high caries prevalence, poor nutrition, and poor oral hygiene) and in low risk groups (low caries incidence using all current prevention recommendations). Sugarfree chewing gums and candies made with xylitol as the principal sweetener have already received official endorsements from six national dental associations.

Inulin-FOS (FructoOligoSaccharide) is a soluble fiber and promotes beneficial intestinal bacterial growth.

Fructooligosaccharide (FOS) also sometimes called oligofructose or oligofructan, is an oligosaccharide used as an artificial or alternative sweetener. FOS use emerged in the 1980s in response to consumer demand for healthier and calorie-reduced foods. The term oligosaccharide refers to a short chain of sugar molecules (in the case of FOS, fructose molecules). Oligo means few, and saccharide means sugar. FOS has been a popular dietary supplement in Japan for many years and is now becoming increasingly popular in Western cultures for its prebiotic effects. FOS serves as a substrate for many bacterial species in the large intestine, increasing the overall Gastrointestinal Tract (GI Tract) health. It has also been touted as a supplement for preventing yeast infections. Lo Han Sweet™ advantages:

Jarrow Formulas Ordered this to put in my coffee. Scooper's cute, but kind of awkward. The herb is kind of bitter in the coffee, but it is a natural (be kind to animals) choice, so I'd probably buy it again--though it'd be easier in little packets.

lohan sweet Excellent product! Tastes fantastic in tea and coffee. Low sugar, low carb and low fat - great taste. Excellent price, the lowest I've found anywhere on the web.

sweetener This is better than stevia.

Not Too Impressed So far, I have used this only in my yogurt, raspberry, ground flax seed concoction, and was not at all impressed with the sweetening power or taste of this product. My straight xylitol works much better. Maybe this is tastier in liquids?

Better than expected! Finally a sweetner that is wonderfully sweet and is all natural. I really like this product and hope I will never have to go back to "artificial" sweetners. Truely satisfies my sweet tooth and a little bit goes a long way.

NATURAL ALTERNATIVE TO SUGAR THIS IS A GOOD TASTING, NATURAL ALTERNATIVE TO SUGAR....IT HAS A BETTER TASTE THAN STEVIA. A LITTLE GOES A LONG WAY.

No after taste This is great stuff! I like it better that Stevia as a sweetener for beverages. It has no after taste and does not raise blood sugar level. A great way to cut sugar consumption without sacrificing taste.

Shame on Jarrow This is NOT Lo Han - the natural alternative to sugar and many times sweeter. Lo Han has many proven health benefits and is delicious - see Trimedica brand. This Jarrow stuff is getting a lot of its power from Xylitol! Xylitol is incredibly sweet and in the great majority of people will trigger intestinal problems (bloating, loose stool etc) and usually comes with gentle warnings on packets. Xylitol is VERY much cheaper than Lo Han and not really the same stuff as mentioned- well noted side effects. Jarrow should be selling true Lo Han - like Trimedica which is cheaper! - and not the diluted product. Shame on Jarrow - normally a great and reliable company, by the way, I buy a ton of supplements off them.

acceptable Not bad.

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.
