Flavor tripping with miracle berries is a great way to entertain and amaze your family and friends. To the uninitiated, flavor tripping is using miracle berries, one of nature’s only taste modifiers, to naturally transform the taste of sour and acidic foods so they taste sweet without sugar. This is achieved because miracle berries contain Miraculin, a glycoprotein that affects the taste receptors on the tongue.
Using MiraBurst Miracle Berry Tablets is easy and convenient for flavor tripping; simply pop a tablet in your mouth and let it dissolve, completely coating the tongue. After this, any sour and acidic foods you eat will taste sweet for up to 90 minutes – enough time to have fun tasting a range of sour foods!
A Perfect Drink for a Flavor Tripping Party: Sugarless Citrus Sangria
Our Sugarless Citrus Sangria recipe is a great drink to serve to demonstrate the transformative power of flavor tripping with MiraBurst. Refreshing and easy to make, this citrus sangria provides a lot of unexpected health benefits as well. The lemons, limes, and oranges included in this drink provide a healthy dose of vitamin C, while the red wine supplies drinkers with resveratrol, a phenol compound that has been linked to fighting off the risks of heart disease and certain cancers.
This sangria is also inexpensive! Because miracle berries transform sour tastes, you can opt to use a cheaper red wine as the base of this sangria. The tannins in red wine react to Miraculin so cheaper versions of red wine have rounder, more robust flavor when consumed after using a MiraBurst Miracle Berry Tablet.
