Referred to as the miracle fruit, the miracle berry, the miraculous berry, or the sweet berry. It has an amazing power to modify the perception of the flavor of sour and acidic foods and make them taste sweet.
The powerful agent within MiraBurst miracle fruit berries is Miraculin. This natural substance is found within the pulp of the fruit and binds to the taste receptors on the tongue. When sour and acidic foods are consumed, the sweet taste receptors are activated or “supercharged” and therefore the food is perceived by the consumer as sweet. Its effect lasts up to 90 minutes.
How MiraBurst® Works
MiraBurst miracle berries (Synsepalum dulcificum) come from a plant native to West Africa that has been used for centuries by local tribes to sweeten foods. By eating the miracle fruit and swirling the pulp around their mouths, they discovered that their taste perceptions were temporarily modified, changing their normally sour and acidic foods to taste sweet.
