Difference between Golden Monk Fruits and Monk Fruits made with Traditional Method 黄金罗汉果和传统罗汉果的分别
Golden monk fruit derives its name from the bright gold hue of its skin. Compared to typical monk fruit, which is dark brown in colour, golden monk fruit is free from the unpleasant burnt bitter aftertaste. It has such discrepancy due to the difference in processing methods. Monk fruits made with traditional method are usually roasted at a higher temperature to dry it out for longer shelf life, thus producing less appealing dark coloured monk fruits with burnt bitter flavour. Nevertheless, golden monk fruits are produced with a new dehydration method called low-temperature vacuum-drying technique to evaporate the moisture inside the fruit, retaining its bright colour while extending its shelf life. When brewed or boiled in water, the liquid remains bright yellow colour, has a nectar-like sweetness with refreshing fruity scent that is free from bitter aftertaste, unlike the one brewed with traditional monk fruits. The low-temperature vacuum-drying technique also preserves more nutrients in monk fruits.
Tips for choosing golden monk fruits: The shell of golden monk fruit is more fragile thus breaks more easily during transportation. In addition, it usually has a hole drilled into its top for moisture evaporation. To avoid pests’ issue, it is recommended to buy those individually packed for better hygiene and easier storage.黄金罗汉果因表皮呈金黄色而得名。与传统的深褐色罗汉果相比，黄金罗汉果不带焦苦味。之所以有这样的差异，是因为罗汉果加工方法的不同。用传统方法制成的罗汉果通常以较高的温度烘烤以延长保质期，因此颜色较深并带焦苦味。尽管如此，黄金罗汉果采用一种称为真空低温脱水技术的新型脱水方式生产，蒸发罗汉果内部水分同时，还能保留罗汉果的颜色，同时延长保质期。冲泡黄金罗汉果时，你会发现用来冲泡泡黄金罗汉果的水仍呈亮黄色，味道清甜，并带有清爽的罗汉果香气，同时也没有传统罗汉果会有的焦苦味。此外，真空低温脱水技术还保留了罗汉果更多的营养成分。
