SOME EXPERIMENTAL RESULTS

After dissolving a tab on his tongue, he dove into the bounty, which included:


 
§         Guinness beer (the best of all; tasted like a chocolate milk shake)
§         Blueberries (tasted like the best blueberries ever)
§         Cherry tomatoes (tasted a bit like Concord grapes)
§         Lemons (tasted like lemon candy)
§         Wine (awful; tasted like “painfully sweet dessert wine”)
§         Jalapeños (sweet on the outside, spicy on the inside, rather overwhelming)
§         Mustard (tasted like sweet frosting)
§         Ritz Cheese Sandwiches (admittedly not Primal, but the cheese filling tasted like Oreo filling)

More neutral flavored items like beef jerky, nuts, or pretzels were basically unchanged. His favorite combination was dark chocolate topped with tomato slices and slathered in mustard. Strangest of all, he said, was that using the miracle fruit wasn’t a radical departure from the normal flavor profiles of the food. He could still tell he was eating a tomato, or drinking a beer; it’s just that the sweet/sour/bitter sensations were all out of whack (but in a good way).

It definitely sounds like miracle fruit is worth a try. And it might sound tempting to somebody struggling with sugar cravings to buy berries and go to town on a bag full of lemons. Not only would the acid of the lemon still have an effect on you (try eating a lemon; the citric acid can cause sores), but chasing the sugar dragon – even if it’s technically nutritionally viable – will only keep your cravings going strong. You don’t want to shell out money every time you want something sweet, do you? It’ll get expensive after awhile and, worst of all, you’ll probably eventually get sick of the flavor. I’d say try the miracle frooties, but practice moderation to save your wallet and keep the experience fresh and fun.


Have you heard about the "miracle fruit" that tricks the tongue into perceiving sour foods as sweet? The latest issue of the Journal of the American Dietetic Association explores the possibility of the fruit helping cancer, obese and diabetic patients. The tiny fruit, called Synsepalum dulcificum, is the color of a cranberry. According to a March 25, 2009 article on CNN's website, the berry is native to West Africa and has inspired "taste tripping" parties where people can experience tart lemons that suddenly taste like candy or hot sauce that tastes like honey barbecue sauce.
CNN reported that Mount Sinai Medical Center in Miami began studying whether the berry's sweetening effects could restore the appetite of cancer patients whose chemotherapy treatments have left them with dulled taste buds. Researchers found that the majority gave feedback that the berry did improve taste. The hospital plans additional studies. In addition to cancer patients, other researchers are looking into how the berries could help people with diabetes and obesity.
The Miracle Fruit (Synsepalum dulcificum) is a little red fruit about 1.3 to 1.8 cm (0.6 to 0.8 inch) in length and 8 mm (0.4 inch) in width. Miracle Fruit berries cause bitter and sour foods (lemons, grapes, vinegar,...), consumed after eating Miracle Fruit berries, to taste sweet.

The berry was first documented by explorer Chevalier des Marchais who searched for many different fruits during a 1725 excursion to its native West Africa. Marchais noticed that local tribes picked the berry from shrubs and chewed it before meals. The plant grows in bushes up to 20 feet (6.1 m) high in its native habitat but does not usually grow higher than ten feet in cultivation, and it produces two crops per year, after the end of the rainy season. It is an evergreen plant that produces small red berries, with flowers that are white and which are produced for many months of the year. The seedsare about the size of coffee beans.

The berry contains an active glycoprotein molecule, with some trailing carbohydrate chains, called miraculin.
When the fleshy part of the fruit is eaten, this molecule binds to the tongue's taste buds, causing sour foods to taste sweet. While the exact cause for this change is unknown, one hypothesis is that the effect may be caused if miraculin works by distorting the shape of sweetness receptors "so that they become responsive to acids, instead of sugar and other sweet things".This effect lasts 15-30 minutes.

Once picked, the fruit only lasts a few days. Because of this we prefer the dried, powdered version, called Miracle Frooties. Fresh miracle berries are freeze dried moments after being picked to produce powdered Miracle Berries with the same effect as fresh berries. The powder is then compressed into Froooties for easier usage. Miracle Frooties package contains10 frooties (tablets) and is double factory sealed.
