  • PureLo Lo Han Sweetener

  • Made from Monk Fruit, a traditional Chinese fruit

  • Calorie free non-artificial sweet alternative

If you are looking for an alternative to artificial sweeteners without the potential bitterness of stevia or the calories of honey, Swanson PureLo Lo Han Sweetener is an excellent choice! This concentrated extract from Lo Han (the traditional Chinese fruit also known as Monk Fruit) has found its way out of the Asian markets and into the mainstream as a calorie-free way to sweeten. It's perfect for coffee and tea and can even be used for cooking and baking. But beware: Lo Han can be up to 200 times sweeter than sugar. We've tempered its sweetness a bit by blending PureLo with natural inulin so it's ready to use in recipes or at the table.
Note: Lo Han dissolves best when mixed into room temperature liquids. If you wish to sweeten a cold drink like iced tea, mix at room temperature and chill for best results.

Summary of Customer Ratings & Reviews

Customer Ratings & Reviews

PureLo Lo Han Sweetener (Monk Fruit) is rated 3.6 out of 5 by 55.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Bad aftertaste in coffee I bought this to use in coffee (since the only added sugar I use is in coffee, I never sweeten tea), namely expresso, and the aftertaste is just terrible. Gave it away.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Stupid seal lets moisture in which destroys it This is a fabulous product - destroyed because the way too strong safety seal is impossible to remove completely soyou end up with a bumpy rim that won't seal against the lid. Even if you tighten the lid, moisture gets in and makes the product rock hard. Please, Swanson, just use a normal wax seal on your lids. So many of your products have a glue sealing them that's so bad that even heating them first won't remove them completely.. Sorry to have to give such a negative review, but I hope it will get your attention and you'll change this practice. I know you think its for security, but nobody's goig to try to break into your products since they are not even sitting on store shelves, they go right from you to the consumer. So no need for safety lids - a simple wax seal would let us know the bottle is thight and not letting air in.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Expensive, but decent sugar sub Given the first ingredient is inulin and not monk fruit, I think the value is not as good for those looking for the potent sweetness of monk fruit. However, since there aren't many other options, this item serves ok for a sugar substitute and has no after taste. It does not dissolve well in cool/cold liquid, so better to use with hot coffee/tea/dishes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pure Sweetness! Lo Han Sweetener has become a staple ingredient for me. It allows me to decrease the amounts of other sugar(s) needed in recipes. I've used it successfully in pies, cakes, cookies, puddings, ice cream and more; usually by combining a small amount with other sweeteners. Generally I use about half a teaspoon which seems to sweeten the whole batch of whatever I'm making. I've experimented using various combinations of xylitol, stevia (tiny amounts go a long way), raw sugar, honey, molasses, maple syrup, agave, refined white sugar. .. PureLo Lo Han Monk Fruit works along with any of them. Even though I try different amounts and combinations, I've never had something NOT turn out to be a yummy treat - or at least I suppose that is why my experiments disappear so quickly and I think this is THE ingredient that gives anything a Pure Sweetness!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Use in almond milk hot cocoa Normally I use stevia in my tea, and find the brand I use to be just fine. This Lo Han is much more expensive and not as sweet, so I have to use a lot more than I would if it were stevia. However, if I make almond milk hot cocoa with stevia and heat it up until it's steaming it tastes terrible and ruins the drink. If I use almond milk, Lo Han and cocoa powder I can heat it up until it's steaming and it tastes fine. So I buy this for hot cocoa only, and use stevia otherwise.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not for me Based on the positive reviews for this product, I ordered it. I used it several times and I experienced an after taste each time. Not for me. Maybe O.K. for you.
Date published: 2015-04-04
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Inferior to Stevia It is sweet, but not as sweet as Stevia, I suppose because it has been cut with some filler. It is not near as soluble as Stevia, and Stevia is less soluble that sugar. Lo Han is very insoluble even in hot tea; lumps can form on bottom that are so difficult to dissolve that you have to scratch them off with a spoon. This product's claim to fame is no bitter aftertaste, which is true; but if you are happy with Swanson's Stevia, save you money and stay with it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Natural Sweetness This is a natural sweet substance made from the monk fruit and mixed with some inulin to make it into a powder which is easy to use. It comes with a tiny scoop and I use it in my morning protein smoothie, using just a half scoop for ten ounces of milk in the mix. I detect no aftertaste and the jar I bought has lasted for months. I am not a baker so don't use it for anything but my smoothie. Finally just bought my second jar. No toxic side effects, no calories, low glycemic index...what could be better?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better than expected I really liked this sweetener. It didn't leave a bad after taste and it wasn't overbearing either. I will buy some more and recommend it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from how sweet it is! This is a great sweetener derived from a gourd that is actually used in Chinese Herbal Medicine. As a sweetener it's perfect in my book. A great alternative for those who somehow dislike the taste of stevia (which I don't). I do think it's great to have a variety of sweeteners to use. Xylitol is another one that Swanson has.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I am unable to use sugar and I do not like to use the artificial sweeteners. Pure Lo Han Sweetener is a great product. It tastes good with no after taste.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is good stuff. The sweet is amazing, it has a fruity accent to it but it still doesn't overpower at all. I used it in coffee and shakes and as a fruit sweetener (Strawberries, etc) in cooking it would be great, it can get syrupy a little bit like sugar, so I am sure it would work better in many recipes BUT it is pricey for the amounts. I used in a 20oz cup of coffee about 3 packets of Sucralose (Splenda) sweetener. To get the same sweet it took almost 2 scoops from the tub (Can't recall what size the scoops are) but it is SO very good. And so much more tasty than sucralose or any of the yucky artificial sweeteners. It doesn't have any bitterness to it like Stevia, but would compliment it well (Maybe a 50/50 mix or even 20/80 monkfruit/stevia) to help alleviate the bitter and balance it. Could be cost effective that way.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from good sweetener tastes very sweet and natural, a little pricey.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Monk instead of aspartame When you see aspartame, aspartamic acid, or phenylalanine on a label, run the other direction as fast as you can. There are several other good sugar substitures, stevia--although some don't like the taste, and agave--taste is good but my sister says there was a negative report on it recently. So, when I saw this I had to try it. The taste is good and it works well in coffee, etc. It is white which may appeal to one's sugar "image". I recommend it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for JJVirgin Diet I started the JJ Virgin way of eating January 1st. This is one of the sweetners she recommends. I like the way it tastes in my tea and coffee. I was a die hard Stevia user, but I think I like Lo Han better.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Lo Han Bummer I bought this product for my mom to try and get her off artificial sweeteners and because she doesn't care for stevia but she wasn't impressed, so she gave it to me. I actually was looking forward to trying it because I read it didn't have the aftertaste that stevia can have and like stevia, it is supposed to be a lot sweeter than sugar. Well it doesn't have a bad taste. I actually would even say it is pleasant, but it really isn't that sweet. I had to use much more than I expected and at this price and for the small amount you get, it is not worth it. If Swanson could get the price down a lot or sell it for the same price for say 3 times as much, it would be fine enough and I'd buy it, but not now. Bummed.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from No so great Small container, big price. I didn't think it sweetened well. The taste reminded me of artificial sweeteners, not sugar.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Bad Choice This does not sweeten nearly as well as stevia. I decided to try it because it was on sale, but will go back to stevia. Scoop provided in the container was too long & had to be wedged into it, getting the product stuck to fingers with every use. Put into another container to solve this problem but will still not purchase again.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from No funny taste, wish it was larger. I did not have a problem with the taste as I have seen some others have. I liked it, it sweetened and mixed well. I had hoped this could become a regular replacement for other fructose based sweeteners for me, but I will not be able to use it in cooking and such as I had hoped based on the size/price available. If I could buy it in bulk at a decent price I would have no problem at all!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great but expensive! This is a great sweetener I discovered. I use it in the morning mixing it in with instant oatmeal that comes in various flavors. The only negative thing about Pure Lo Han Sweetener (at least currently) is that it is very expensive. If the cost could be reduced and or if the amount would be increased, it would be a perfect product.
Date published: 2011-09-03
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Frozen desserts with Lo-Han I cannot eat sugar, honey etc., don't like Stevia, and avoid sweeteners in blue, pink and yellow packets because they are supposed to be bad for us. Since I eat yogurt and fruit, I've been sweetening with Lo-Han and making frozen yogurt. I do have to use about ten (gasp) little spoons of Lo-Han, and that is very expensive, but it is my only access to a healthy frozen dessert. I don't taste any aftertaste, altho my husband does. However when I made pistachio, he said the fat content covered the bitterness. I wish I could buy larger and cheaper quantities of Lo-Han.
