The History of the MiraBurst Miracle Berry

MiraBurst miracle fruit (Synsepalum dulcificum)

MiraBurst miracle fruit (Synsepalum dulcificum), also known as the miracle berry, is a plant native to West Africa that has been used for centuries by local tribes to sweeten generally acidic diets. The berry is treasured not for its own taste, but for the fruit's unique effect on the taste buds. By eating the fruit and swirling the pulp around their mouths, they discovered that their taste perceptions were temporarily modified, changing their normally sour foods to taste sweet.

MiraBurst miracle berries and active polyphenols

Additionally, MiraBurst miracle fruit berries are known to contain active polyphenols that are beneficial for a healthy living.

It has been known to Westerners since the 18th century. An attempt was made in the 1970s to commercialize the fruit, but ended in failure when the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) classified the berry as a "food additive." There were controversies stating that the project was sabotaged and the research was burgled by the sugar industry to prevent loss of business. It is now out of the FDA, classified as a "fruit" and in the hands of U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA).

The MiraBurst miracle fruit berry has been studied around the world – in China, Japan, and Netherlands to the U.S. and in organizations including Unilever and the U.S. Army.
