The Luo Han Guo plant is cultivated for its fruit, whose Monk fruit extract is nearly 300 times sweeter than sugar and has been used as a low-calorie sweetener. The sweet taste of the fruit comes mainly from mogrosides, a group of triterpene glycosides that make up about 1% of the flesh of the fresh fruit.Through solvent extraction, a powder containing 80% mogrosides can be obtained, the main one being mogroside-5 (esgoside). It is used for Traditional Chinese medicine and applies to cure disease, such as high blood pressure, pulmonary tuberculosis, asthma, gastritis, whooping cough, acute & chronic tracheitis and acute & chronic tonsillitis, etc. Luo Han Guo fruit and its extract are dual-use in therapeutic and health products. At present, Monk fruit extract is allowed to use as a food additive in these countries: Japan, Korea, Thailand, Singapore, Europea, USA (GRAS Approved) , Australia and China, etc.
