We are proud to announce Lakanto as one of our first official sponsors for VegFest Los Angeles 2018. They provide sugar-free sweeteners which are natural, and all vegan. Their companies ethical pillars include a zero emissions facility, recycled water for crops, and a healthier product for consumers.
No GMOs or pesticides are used while growing Lakanto’s monk fruit, which is good for both consumers and the planet. Each fruit is picked by hand and Lakanto farmers still utilize the same environmentally friendly growing methods as the ancient buddhists monks.
Lakanto uses a cold water filtration method of processing which preserves the nutrients from the fruit. This cold water is recycled and used to irrigate the crops of new monk fruit. The fiber/residue from this same process is used as compost for these crops as well. To top that all off, their processing facility is 100% zero emissions.
Lakanto sweeteners contain no fructose or sucrose, which means zero calories and zero glycemic index. These sweeteners will also not affect blood sugar, which means its a sweetener suitable for diabetics. Lakanto even claims that monk fruit can act as an anti-inflammatory, anti-carcinogen, and it could actually help treat diabetes and obesity.

and sugar-free. You can find their products at Whole Foods, Amazon, Sprouts, etc. Their products include…
