How does it work?
Discovered in west Africa during the 17th century, Miracle berries - Latin name, Synsepalum dulcificum - are a smooth, red berry growing only in tropical climates.
It is thought that the glycoprotein, Miraculin, found in the berry's pulp, temporarily binds to taste buds. The bound protein is thought to change the shape of sour and bitter taste buds so they instead recognise these foods as sweet. The glycoprotein binds to taste buds for up to an hour.
We recommended you try these foods after sucking on Miracle berries: lemons, limes, grapefruit, strawberries, passionfruit, pineapple, raspberries, greek yogurt, dark chocolate, onions, tomatos, and brussles sprouts. These drinks are fun to try: fruit infused waters, tea, coffee, and juices.
