Monk fruit concentrate is safe and healthy
Monk fruit has been consumed by people for thousands of years. Mogrosides are the natural plant compounds present in monk fruit. They compose about 30% of the monk fruit. Monk fruit concentrate are these extracted plant compounds.
Monk fruit concentrate has been tested in high doses in animals and is considered safe by countries around the world.
The United States, Japan, Canada, New Zealand, China and Singapore have all approved monk fruit based sweeteners for consumption.

Monk fruit is healthy
There are no studies or consumer reports indicating any risk with consuming monk fruit.
Further, monk fruit has been used by Chinese medicine doctors in China for thousands of years with excellent results.
I always recommend purchasing USDA certified organic monk fruit sweeteners. Many manufacturers have limited quality control and may use monk fruit contaminated with pesticides and include genetically modified components.
A USDA organic certification is a consumers best possible assurance that the product they are consuming is healthy, non-GMO and free of toxic contamination.
