1. What is the MiraBurst Miracle Berry and what are the other names for it?
The MiraBurst Miracle Berry (also called miracle fruit) is fruit berry originally from Ghana, West Africa. It contains a single seed with a layer of pulp around the seed. The pulp contains a glycoprotein called miraculin. After eating this fruit or tablets made from it, the miraculin binds to your taste buds and for up to 90 minutes, any acidic or sour tasting food will taste sweet. It also contains other substances including polyphenols (twelve of them, which help control diabetes) and flavonoids (which have anti-oxidant properties which help prevent skin cancer).
Other names for the MiraBurst berry are miracle fruit, sweet berry and synsepalum dulcificum.
