McNeil Nutritionals, LLC, maker of the artificial sweetener Splenda, is gearing  up to introduce a new “natural” sweetener known as Nectresse that will cater  specifically to those looking for a healthy alternative to artificial sweeteners  and sugar. But is Nectresse really as natural as McNeil claims it is, or is the  product just another example of tricky marketing hype aimed at health-conscious  consumers?

According to the Nectresse website, the product is “100  percent natural,” and is made from the heat-stable extract of an Asian melon  known as monk fruit, or Lo Han. McNeil claims that Nectresse contains zero  calories per serving, and that monk fruit is 150 times sweeter than sugar, which  means that consumers do not need to use very much of it to effectively sweeten  foods and beverages.
