BROOKLYN, NY -- Cumberland Packaging is expanding its family of all-natural sweeteners with Monk Fruit In The Raw.

The zero-calorie sugar substitute is made from monk fruit, a small green melon native to Asia. It contains dextrose, a natural carbohydrate derived from corn. Each packet reportedly packs twice the sweetness of sugar.

Monk Fruit In The Raw comes in orange single-serve packets in a 40-ct. box. It joins other Cumberland sweeteners, including Sugar In The Raw, Stevia In The Raw and organic Agave In The Raw.

Last month, McNeill Nutritionals introduced a zero-calorie monk fruit-based sweetener called Nectresse. | SEE STORY
