About Lakanto the Monk Fruit sugar
I have been using ehrythrol for a couple of years as it was the only sweetener which did not spike my blood sugar…
Now I found a better alternative: Lakanto.
Lakanto is a zero-calorie sugar substitute that tastes and cooks like sugar, but with one big difference: its zero calories and zero glycemic index won’t affect your blood sugar levels. Unlike most fruits, whose sweetness comes from fructose, Monk Fruit’s sweetness comes from natural mogrosides that are much sweeter than sugar. Modern research shows that Monk Fruit extract does not elevate blood sugar or insulin, making it a perfect sweetener for blood sugar and weight management.
Using the best cacao for your recipe!
I am so lucky to have a lot of amazing friends who create amazing products!
My lovely friend Cynthia imports simply the best raw cacao your money can buy!
La ChocoTia sources only the highest quality cacao available on the planet – Ceremonial Grade Cacao. We use a wild variety that is grown in its traditional habitat, hand-prepared by indigenous people in Guatemala and Peru.
We sustain this superior quality by maintaining a personal relationship to our source and by keeping this a small-scale operation, which makes each batch of Ceremonial Grade Cacao unique.
You can not easily find cacao this pure, sustainable, and TASTY anywhere else!
