Baking just got a little healthier! The Monk Fruit In The Raw Baker’s Bag measures cup for cup, just like sugar and can be used to replace all of the sugar in beverages, sauces, and dressings. For baked goods, it is recommended to only replace half of the amount of sugar with Monk Fruit In The Raw for best results. Try to substitute half of the sugar in your favorite baking recipes with Monk Fruit In The Raw or visit InTheRaw.com for recipe ideas.

Baking isn’t one of my favorite hobbies, but when Moms Meet asked me to try Monk Fruit In The Raw, I decided to make my favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe. I substituted Monk Fruit In The Raw for half of the sugar the recipe calls for. And I must admit, my cookies came out good!

  • Monk Fruit In The Raw is a wholesome, zero-calorie sweetener made from real monk fruit, a vine-ripened fruit that is native to Asia.
  • Monk fruit, known as luo han guo in Asia, was first harvested in the 13th century by Arhats, or “Enlightened Ones,” which translates to Monks in English.
  • The sweet and delicious extract from monk fruit is blended with other sweeteners to create the perfect balance of sweet.
  • Monk Fruit In The Raw is naturally vegan, kosher, and gluten-free, and does not contain any added table sugar, sugar alcohols, or molasses.
  • Monk Fruit In The Raw has the closest taste to sugar of any non-caloric sweetener, and has the least amount of aftertaste.
  • One pack of Monk Fruit In The Raw is about as sweet as two teaspoons of sugar.
  • One box of Monk Fruit In The Raw (40ct packets) retails for $3.49, and the Monk Fruit In The Raw Bakers Bag retails for $6.99. Price may vary based on the retailer.
