Yes. The ingredients in Whole Earth Infusions - MCT are produced without bioengineering, and our product is Non-GMO Project verified.
All of the ingredients in Whole Earth are processed to assure consistency of taste, safety and stability. Depending upon the ingredient, our suppliers may use chemicals to process the ingredient, but none of these processing aids remain in the final ingredient at detectable levels. Under U.S. Food and Drug Administration regulations, these processing aids are [...]
Medium chain triglycerides (MCTs) are a type of fat made up of medium chain fatty acids, which allows for quicker absorption and conversion to energy than the long chain fatty acids found in most fats and oils. MCTs occur naturally in milk and coconut oil. Our MCTs are derived from coconut oil.
Yes. Scientific research and a long history of safe use show that monk fruit sweeteners can be safely consumed. In 2009 in the U.S., monk fruit sweeteners were given Generally Recognized as Safe (GRAS) status. The FDA has reviewed the published research, listened to expert opinions and, based on the evidence, has no objections to [...]
Monk fruit extract is made by first juicing the monk fruit, then filtering out insoluble plant material, extracting out a high concentration of the main sweetening component, Mogroside V, and finally drying into a powder. The final extract is about 150-200 times sweeter than sugar and contributes virtually no calories in application.
Monk fruit, also known as lo han guo, is a small, round sub-tropical melon grown in Southeast Asia. According to legend, the fruit is named after Buddhist monks who first cultivate the fruit nearly 800 years ago.
Stevia leaf extract is more than 200 times sweeter than sugar so only a small amount is needed to sweeten in each serving.
Yes. The stevia leaf extract is comprised of rebaudiosides, which are a natural component of the stevia plant. The rebaudiosides (Reb A, Reb D, and Reb M) are non-synthetic (not produced by a chemical reaction) and nothing about them is chemically or structurally altered when extracted from the stevia plant.
Yes. Stevia leaf extracts have been studied extensively and have been found to be safe for human consumption. The raw stevia leaf has other components that do not taste like sugar and often have an aftertaste. The extraction process enables us to get our desired sweet taste profile.
The stevia leaf extract is extracted from dried and crushed stevia leaves. To extract the stevia plant’s intense natural sweetness, after the leaves have been dried and milled, they are steeped in fresh water and the resulting liquid extract is filtered, purified, and dried. It is then purified further to obtain the steviol glycosides used [...]
