When it comes to sugar, say hello monk fruit and bye to stevia. But why you may ask? The truth is, after tried lots of different natural sweeteners when Healthy Hippo testing their candy and found that Monk Fruit was well, just the best! It has a cleaner, balanced sweetness when compared to stevia, but more importantly it doesn’t have the signature stevia aftertaste and it doesn’t overwhelm the delicious fruit flavors.
Healthy Hippo believes in high-quality ingredients and are the only North American candy brand to use solely monk fruit juice concentrate to sweeten their candy, giving them that balanced sweetness without the junk – no sugar alcohols, stevia, or allulose! Monk fruit is gut-friendly and doesn’t have the funky aftertaste that stevia products can often have. So they chose to sweeten their candy with only monk fruit juice concentrate because after lots (and lots) of testing, they found it was the clear winner in a pretty big way.
