Food Spotlight: Lakanto Monk Fruit Chocolate Bars



Lakanto Sugar Free Chocolate is lovingly handcrafted from heirloom Arriba Nacional cocao beans, an ancient variety with more than 5000 years of Mesoamerican tradition. This cacao is indigenous to Ecuador and thrives thanks to the fertile soils and pure rainwater of the lush Guayas River basin. Arriba Nacional has a rich chocolate flavor with light, fruity overtones.

We make our chocolate using Old World methods including traditional granite stone mills where the cacao is slowly mixed to enhance its texture and flavor.

This chocolate is exclusively sweetened with Lakanto Monk Fruit Sweetener, which has zero calories and zero glycemic index. Enjoy this gourmet chocolate bar and satisfy your taste buds without the guilt of sugar.





About the company:

Lakanto® is made by Saraya Co., Ltd, a Japan-based international health and environmental company. In 1995, Saraya Co. formulators struck gold, almost literally! They developed a golden-brown natural sweetener by adding a high purity extract of the Chinese fruit Monk Fruit (Luo Han Guo) to erythritol, a sugar alcohol made of fermented glucose.

The resulting sweetener had absolutely zero calories and a glycemic index of zero. It closely matched the sweetness profile of table sugar and could be used in cooking, baking, coffee and tea. Best of all, it contained no additives and tasted great! Read More

Product Spotlight: Norbu Sweet Monk Natural Sweetener


Norbu is a 100% Natural Sweetener that harnesses the clean sweet taste of Monk Fruit. Using the natural sweetness of Monk Fruit we created a healthy, natural way to enjoy a little sweetness, without the artificial nastiness.


Monk Fruit has been cultivated and hand-picked for centuries in the remote hillsides of central Asia. Although it has been used for hundreds of years this cheeky little fruit, and its health benefits, have remained a relative secret until recently.

By using Monk Fruit to naturally sweeten foods and beverages, Norbu is now sharing with you the power of this wonder fruit and its age-old health secrets. So try it now to discover the ancient natural sweetener with the wholesome fruity taste.

Erythritol is a naturally occurring nectar found in fruits, like melons and grapes. Because Monk Fruit is nearly 200 times sweeter than sugar, we carefully blend it with Erythritol to allow you to use Norbu as a spoon for spoon substitute for sugar.

Norbu Sweetener is available at Woolworths and Coles supermarkets throughout Australia. It is available in a 80 stick (160g) box, 40 stick (80g) box, 200g canister and 200 tablet tin.

The monk fruit contains about 25-38% of various carbohydrates, mainly fructose and glucose. However, Norbu is fructose free even though it is derived from monk fruit because only the sweet component called mogrosides are extracted from the fruit. Everything else including the fructose is left behind.

Norbu has a gentle fruity flavour that has been carefully crafted to ensure that every granule has a refreshingly sweet taste. Norbu tastes nothing like artificial sweeteners, because it’s natural, so there are no nasty chemicals and no bitter aftertaste.


For anyone looking to lose weight, or just eliminate artificial foods and sugar from your diet, Norbu makes doing something about it easy. Simply replace sugar with Norbu and you will begin to feel the benefits. Every time you use Norbu you’re making a healthier, smarter choice with our low G.I., low carbs, tooth friendly blend of natural sweeteners that have 96% fewer calories than sugar. So what are you waiting for?
