He has witnessed ﬁrst hand the damage done by excessive sugar consumption and wanted a product that could help both his patients and his family.
Existing artiﬁcial chemical sweeteners such as aspartame, sucralose, etc. seemed linked to neurotoxicity and chronic disease. Dr. Tostado needed a product that not only tasted sweet but was also a health promoter for his patients.
Dr. Tostado considered Stevia, however it had a bitter aftertaste that was too strong for many of his patients.
He ﬁnally settled on monk fruit. Monk fruit has a number of health promoting beneﬁts and none of the toxicities associated with artiﬁcial sweeteners.
However, his work was just beginning!
