Lakanto is made in Japan by SARAYAN Co, Ltd., an international health, sanitation and environmental technology company, known for its eco–friendly products and charitable work. Lakanto is made from Erythritol, a sugar alcohol made from fermented glucose from certified non–GMO corn and high–purity Monk Fruit fruit extract. Lakanto has been specially formulated to match the sweetness profile of sugar as closely as possible. It looks, tastes and can be used like raw, unprocessed sugar. Sprinkle it on food and use it in place of sugar in your favorite recipes.
