How to reduce sugar with Buddha Fruit
Sweet temptations surround us, we know it’s not so good for us but we want it anyway. Our aim is to allow you to enjoy these sweet treats you love and crave but to reduce the amount of sugar you consume at the very same time.
We have been busy in the kitchen experimenting with various recipes to recreate those sugary treats by substituting it with Lo Han Guo. Little lifestyle changes can make a huge difference. Our lifestyle habits dictate our health. To us its important that we can still enjoy the sweet treats we love but tweaking it slightly to make it better for us all.
Our natural alternative – Lo Han Guo , not only helps you reduce your sugar intake but also has lots of health benefits such as:
- Regulates blood sugar levels
- Contains anti-inflammatory properties
- Reduces the risk of certain cardiovascular diseases (Click here to find out more)
Here are a few simple lifestyle changes you can do to help you reduce your daily sugar intake:
A pinch of lo han guo in your tea or coffee…
Yes all you really need is a pinch, a tiny tiny amount, of Lo Han Guo in your tea or coffee to substitute your 1tsp of sugar habit. To make things easier our new packaging now comes with a tiny scoop. 1 scoop = 1 tsp of sugar, it’s really that simple.
For your baking needs…
We’ve created recipes for you to follow to allow you to enjoy your favourite sweet foods. We’re experimenting all the time with new recipes, keep updated by following our social media channels. If you would like to experiment too then we suggest you use about 200-300 times less than what you would usually use with sugar. For example if a recipe states to use 140g of sugar we tend to use about ¼ of a tsp of Lo Han Guo or ½ teaspoon of Golden Lo Han Guo. Of course everyone has different levels of sweetness so this may not work for everyone, it’s all about trial & error.

Add to your cooking…
Curries and some other recipes contain little amounts of sugar so why not substitute by adding Lo Han Guo instead. We will be posting our recipes soon so stay tuned….
Swap your store bought treats for homemade…
We appreciate that everyone leads busy lives but how much longer does it really take to make certain things ourselves. For example hot chocolate… some store bought options have been shown to contain up to 15 teaspoons of sugar!!! It doesn’t take much time to make a Buddha Fruit hot chocolate at home, just add cocoa powder, Lo Han Guo & milk and heat together. To make it creamier add a nut butter.
By following these simple suggestions you could well be on your way to improving your quality of life.
