A new berry has been gaining in popularity in the past few years. It is commonly called the “Miracle Fruit” or “Miracle Berry.” So why is called a acim teacher fruit? Because it makes food taste sweet. It even makes healthy foods taste sweet.
The scientific name of the berry is called Synsepalum Dulcificum. In 1725 the French cartographer Chevalier des Marchais documented this berry in its native land of West Africa. The local tribes would eat the berry before eating their meals because it made their meals taste sweeter.
The plant grows as a bush to be about 20 feet tall. It takes 3 years before it starts to bear fruit. The miracle berry itself can be fragile, and this has caused the price of a berry to be expensive. You can still get the berry in its natural form, but you can also get it in tablets which have a longer shelf life.
The miracle berry doesn’t have much of a taste of its own. Its effect lies in what it does to other foods. People have been known to take it before drinking a glass of Guinness and claim that the beer tastes like a chocolate shake. Probably the most popular taste test is eating lemons. After eating the miracle berry people say that the raw lemons taste sweet.
So how does the miracle berry produce this effect?
It all has to do with miraculin. Miraculin is a protein found in Synsepalum Dulcificum, or the miracle berry. It was named miraculin after what people were already commonly calling the fruit: miracle berry. Miraculin affects the taste buds and acts as a sweetness inducer when you taste acidic foods, such as lemons. It tricks your taste buds into believing acidic flavors are sweet. The effect can last for about an hour.
It is not uncommon for people to hold miracle berry parties. The attendees will arrive and take the miracle berry pill, then start eating the various types of served foods. These parties usually have acidic and bitter foods, such as lemons, grapefruits, Guinness beer, pickles, and more. People have also tried Tabasco sauce to much delight. It also gives people a chance to experience the miracle berry in a group setting, which increases the enjoyment.
With the miraacle berry the possibilities for weight loss are amazing. The miracle berry could make healthy foods taste sweet like a desert. So there would be no need to cheat on a diet by eating sugary foods high in fat. This could become very important in our era of increasing obesity.
