ASPIRE is naturally sweetened with pure cane sugar, erythritol, and extracts from the monk fruit and stevia leaf. A small amount of these robust, high-quality, low-calorie sweeteners deliver a big taste. Each of these sweeteners have unique benefits and taste attributes. The combination of these natural sweeteners ultimately play various roles in the flavor and sweetness of the beverage from the initial taste to the finish. Monk fruit extract is nearly 300 times sweeter than sugar while stevia leaf extract is nearly 200 times sweeter than sugar. Unlike other sugar substitutes, these natural sweeteners are derived from a fruit and plant.
