Lakanto Classic vs Lakanto Golden: The Definitive Guide

Lakanto Classic vs Lakanto Golden: The Definitive Guide


So, you chose a healthier, happier life with Lakanto. But now you’re asking yourself: Should I choose Lakanto Classic or Lakanto Golden?

Here’s the good news: There’s no right or wrong answer to this question! They both bring the goodness and sweetness of the immortal’s fruit, Monk Fruit, to your table and to your life. Both are keto, diabetic, candida and paleo-friendly, vegan, zero carb, non-GMO and all natural, which means you get all the taste without compromising on your day-to-day health.

Let’s dive into what makes each of our sweeteners so special so you can make a more informed decision.

Lakanto Golden

Our Golden Monkfruit Sweetener has a lusciously warm, mapley taste that is simply perfect for your favourite baked goods, as well as cold beverages like cold coffees and shakes.

It’s made from the seed and peel of the monkfruit, giving it its beautiful golden hues.

This perfect 1:1 brown sugar replacement has a drier texture than brown sugar, but with a very similar flavour.

Lakanto Classic

The ever-classic Classic Monkfruit Sweetener has a taste that’s as close to the sweetness profile of sugar as it gets. Seriously. You have to taste it to believe it.

Unlike Golden, it’s made from the white pulp of the monk fruit.

Lakanto Classic is the perfect 1:1 refined sugar replacement that cooks and bakes just like sugar, and is perfect for your cup of tea or coffee, or whipping up your favourite Indian desserts.

So, which is healthier?

You’d think that Lakanto Golden is healthier than Lakanto Classic, because it’s a brown sugar replacement, right? Not so, we’re afraid. Sugar is sugar. We’ve gone on and on about how brown sugar isn’t really BETTER than white sugar in terms of calories, carbs and health benefits. Whether the sugar is white, processed, raw or untouched, one isn’t really healthier than the others.

But Lakanto, being made from monk fruit, helps you avoid all that jazz. Both our Classic and Golden sweeteners have the same nutritional and sweetness profile, but unlike sugar, they’re both as healthy as can be.

The only difference depends on your palate and the way they work in the kitchen. So which sweetener to choose? Try them both, and choose your own favourite!
