Lakanto's mission is to bring chi to all life by creating innovative, delicious, sugar-free products. We inspire people to reach their highest potential in health and wellness by helping them discover their chi.
In remote mountain highlands of Asia, a group of Buddhist monks called the Luohan achieved enlightenment and ascension through meditation and pure living.
In this primeval forest, the monks discovered a rare superfood prized for its sweetness and its ability to raise chi, or life energy. This sacred fruit was named monk fruit and was used for centuries to increase chi and well-being, earning it the nickname “The Immortals’ Fruit.”
We still harvest monk fruit for Lakanto in the same pristine area and according to traditional and environmental methods.
