McNeil Nutritionals, LLC, the maker of SPLENDA® Sweeteners, announces the launch of NECTRESSETM Natural No Calorie Sweetener (pronounced NECK-TRESS). It is the only 100 percent natural, zero calorie per serving sweetener made from the goodness of real fruit - monk fruit extract - available at stores nationwide.
The new sweetener derives its natural sweetness from monk fruit, a small green melon that has been cultivated in Asia for hundreds of years. Found on lush vines in remote mountain regions, monk fruit is traditionally grown in small family orchards. Today, McNeil Nutritionals, LLC, has combined naturally sweet monk fruit extract with the perfect blend of other natural sweeteners to bring consumers the rich sweet taste of sugar without all the calories.
America's favorite journalist and NECTRESSETM Sweetener spokesperson, Lisa Ling, is aiding the launch effort by spreading the sweet secret of NECTRESSETM Sweetener via video testimonial. Consumers are encouraged to share the video with their social networks as well, and request a free product sample by visiting www.nectresse.com/free-sample.
"As someone with a family history of diabetes, no calorie sweeteners have always been a part of my life," said Ling. "But until I tried NECTRESSETM Sweetener, they were always just a way to cut back on sugar. NECTRESSETM Sweetener is different. It has the rich, sweet taste of sugar and I really love that it satisfies my sweet tooth in a way that fits my healthy lifestyle too."
