Coco Monkey is a unique, low calorie, organic sweetener made from all natural ingredients. It has a nice, clean sweetness with no artificial aftertaste. If eaten by the spoon it melts quickly in your mouth and tastes a lot like cotton candy. Coco Monkey is light and fluffy. 8 ounces of Coco Monkey fill a 16 ounce jar!
Organic inulin is used as the base. Inulin has a mild sweet flavor and is considered a "prebiotic" fiber that normal flora in the intestinal tract can break down and use for food. It is often added to yogurt and kefir as well as other probiotic foods. To this inulin base we add freeze dried organic coconut water (which is many times sweeter than white sugar) and a pure monk fruit extract (which is even sweeter). Organic tapioca is also listed in the ingredients because it is used to make freeze dried coconut water.
How sweet is Coco Monkey? How do I use it in recipes?
Two teaspoons of Coco Monkey are equivalent in sweetness to one tablespoon of white sugar. You can use Coco Monkey in any recipe that contains water. This includes baked goods, deserts, salads, fruit dishes, tea, coffee, etc. Coco Monkey is completely water soluble and very little stirring is required for it to mix. We have not found this sweetener to work well in recipes that are predominantly oil such as chocolate candy as it is not oil soluble.
