FORT WASHINGTON, PA -- New from McNeil Nutritionals LLC, the maker of Splenda sweeteners, is Nectresse, a no-calorie sweetener made with monk fruit.

Formulated to deliver the rich, sweet taste of sugar minus the calories, Nectresse blends naturally sweet monk fruit extract with natural sweeteners erythritol, sugar and molasses. It is available in single-serve packets, packed 40 per box, and 140-serving canisters with a multipurpose lid for sprinkling, pouring or spooning.

Monk fruit is a small green melon that is native to China and cultivated in other parts of Asia. The first record of the monk fruit appears during the 13th century in reference to its use by the monks of Guilin, according to the Chinese historical records.
