The History of the MiraBurst Miracle Berry

Our taste-modifying Miracle Berry products at MiraBurst are created using the Miracle Berry (or, Synsepalum dulcificum), a West African fruit known to local tribes for centuries that have used the plant to sweeten their acidic diets. The Miralce Berry is treasured not for its own taste, but for the berry’s unique effect on the taste buds. By eating the berry and swirling the pulp around their tongues, they discovered that their taste perceptions were temporarily modified, changing their normally sour foods to taste sweet. This effect usually lasts about an hour. Here’s everything you need to know about the history of the Miracle Berry and how it’s changing lives for the better today.

Miracle Berry Origin and History

MiraBurst® Miracle Berries and Active Polyphenols

Additionally, MiraBurst® Miracle Berries are known to contain active polyphenols that are beneficial for a healthy diet.

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.”

Now Classified as Fruit

Although tribes in Ghana began to use the Miracle Berry hundreds of years ago, Westerners didn’t discover this unique fruit until the 1700s. Efforts were made to commercialize the Miracle Berry in the United States during the 1970s, but the FDA prohibited this, classifying miracle fruit as an additive. Today, the USDA classifies them as fruits, which means they don’t require FDA regulation.

MiraBurst® Miracle Berry Origin

In 2014, Dr. Emmanuel Asare founded MiraBurst to make it easier than ever to enjoy a low-sugar eating lifestyle by making the MiraBurst Miracle Berry accessible to everyone globally. Because the Miracle Berry itself is highly perishable, it has been converted into powder and compressed into tablets without any additives or preservatives. The Miracle Berry tablets, therefore, feature the same natural composition as the Miracle Berry itself, but unlike these fruits, our tablets are highly portable and non-perishable.
