Lo Han Sweet Description from Jarrow
Lo Han Kuo is the fruit of Momordica grosvenorii, a plant cultivated in the mountains of southern China. Mogrosides, which are water extracted from the Lo Han fruit, offer a pleasant taste, without affecting blood sugar. Lo Han Guo Mogrosides are up to 250x sweeter than sugar.

Xylitol is metabolized differently from conventional sugar, and does not have the same effects as ordinary table sugar: moreover, it has fewer calories.
