Monk Fruit Concentrate
Natural fruit from a vine. Picture lush orchards on an Asian hillside, swathed in sunlight. Hanging from the vines an abundance of Sweet-Delicious™ monk fruit develops, matures and ripens for fall harvesting. The agreeably warm temperatures at higher elevations in Southeast Asia are well suited to growing this one-of-a-kind subtropical melon. Each year BioVittoria cultivates GMO-free Sweet-Delicious™ seedlings, and provides them to its network of growers. BioVittoria trains and supervises the farmers who plant and then nurture the vines until it’s time to handpick the fruit at each annual harvest. Cultivated under expert guidance. World-class agricultural methods from New Zealand, sustainable farming practices and care for the environment are paramount along the entire path from seedling to finished product. An experienced horticultural team provides on-site guidance at the orchards, then supervises the harvest and delivery of vine-ripened fruit to BioVittoria’s state-of-the-art processing facility nearby. It is “hands-on� at every stage. This level of control and supervision ensures the quality of the fruit, while fulfilling the company’s mission to support sustainable agriculture and fair trade practices. Bringing monk fruit to you with a simple, clean process. BioVittoria has perfected a simple process to concentrate the natural calorie-free sweetness of its Sweet-Delicious™ monk fruit while maintaining its pure fruit goodness. Here’s how it works: Crush – The fruit is crushed to release its natural sweet juice Infuse – The crushed fruit is infused with hot water to gently release the natural calorie-free fruit sweetness Filter – The sweet infusion is then filtered to obtain a pure, calorie-free sweet juice or powdered fruit concentrate
