The History of the MiraBurst® Berry
MiraBurst® Miracle Berry (Synsepalum Dulcificum)
MiraBurst® miracle berry (Synsepalum dulcificum), also known as the miracle fruit, 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 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.
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
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).
Studied Around the World
The MiraBurst® miracle berry has been studied around the world – in China, Japan, and the Netherlands to the U.S. and in organizations such as Unilever and the U.S. Army.
