  • 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 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 the natural 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.

Customer Ratings & Reviews

Rated 3.7 out of 5 by 50 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by I use this everyday and love it and will order again. January 3, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by 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. January 1, 2016
Rated 2 out of 5 by 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. April 4, 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by 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. October 3, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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? June 1, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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. March 9, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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. January 8, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by havent used it much but like they say it is sweet August 8, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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. June 3, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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. April 11, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by good sweetener tastes very sweet and natural, a little pricey. April 4, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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. March 26, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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. March 3, 2013
Rated 2 out of 5 by 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. October 22, 2012
Rated 2 out of 5 by No so great Small container, big price. I didn't think it sweetened well. The taste reminded me of artificial sweeteners, not sugar. February 23, 2012
Rated 2 out of 5 by 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. December 21, 2011
Rated 4 out of 5 by 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! September 20, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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. September 3, 2011
Rated 4 out of 5 by 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. August 5, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Sweet!!! I drink a lot of hot black tea, and some coffee. I was concerned about using other sugar substitutes over the years, and then I discovered Lo Han. I am happy to finally step away from the other stuff I've been using. June 14, 2011
Rated 1 out of 5 by I did not find it sweet at all and when I used more I just got a bad after taste. Plus it does not disolve well. June 7, 2011
Rated 4 out of 5 by Still Experimenting with Lo Han I'm a first time user of Lo Han. I've used it on hot cereal, and found it has a slight after-taste, or maybe "sensation" would be a better term than "taste". It's not really bad, like artificial sweeteners leave, but still "there". I'd like to try it in cooking or baking, but there are no directions for substituting for sugar on the package. In fact, no suggestions for quantity use at all. I've assumed that one of the little scoops equals 1 teaspoon of sugar, but I don't know. I'm still experimenting! March 30, 2011
Rated 4 out of 5 by Too Big-Too Small I prefer this sweetener to all other sugar replacements but the price is too high and the amount is too small not a good value March 26, 2011
Rated 1 out of 5 by Yuck This sweetener has the worst aftertaste, I wont be buying it again. March 24, 2011
