Difference between Golden Monk Fruits and Monk Fruits made with Traditional Method 黄金罗汉果和传统罗汉果的分别
Golden monk fruit derives its name from the bright gold hue of its skin. Compared to typical monk fruit, which is dark brown in colour, golden monk fruit is free from the unpleasant burnt bitter aftertaste.
It has such discrepancy due to the difference in processing methods. Monk fruits made with traditional method are usually roasted at a higher temperature to dry it out for longer shelf life, thus producing less appealing dark coloured monk fruits with burnt bitter flavour.
Nevertheless, golden monk fruits are produced with a new dehydration method called low-temperature vacuum-drying technique to evaporate the moisture inside the fruit, retaining its bright colour while extending its shelf life. When brewed or boiled in water, the liquid remains bright yellow colour, has a nectar-like sweetness with refreshing fruity scent that is free from bitter aftertaste, unlike the one brewed with traditional monk fruits. The low-temperature vacuum-drying technique also preserves more nutrients in monk fruits.
Tips for choosing golden monk fruits: The shell of golden monk fruit is more fragile thus breaks more easily during transportation. In addition, it usually has a hole drilled into its top for moisture evaporation. To avoid pests’ issue, it is recommended to buy those individually packed for better hygiene and easier storage.
