My Magic Berry Moment

I am so excited writing this post that I physically can’t type!  Mess your taste buds:Turn dark ale to drinking chocolate and cherry tomatoes to sweetest strawberries!

Magic Berry ( Synsepalum dulcificum).

We have all heard about it. No? Of course not. A while ago one of my friends at work told me about these berries that grow in Africa and mess your taste buds temporarily! 7 months later the same friend buys10 magic berries tablets and kindly I was given 2 to try!

Magic berries which grow in Africa, Miracle Fruit Tablets which you can buy from Amazon website and are made from the same berries.

Here is the information about it copied and pasted from the supplier, do read!

“Miracle berry tablets turn sour foods sweet. How does it work? Place a Miracle Frooties serving (one tablet) on your tongue, let it dissolve, and after it has melted you can bite into a lemon and it tastes like lemonade!  They are small berries which contain the glycoprotein called Miraculin which modifies taste perception. Once Miraculin binds to the taste buds it creates a fascinating sensation. Suddenly a glass of ale tastes like chocolate and a sour lemons and limes turn sweet, thanks to the temporary altered state of the taste receptors on your tongue. Sugar free desserts and cocktails are other popular applications. The sensation typically lasts 15-30 minutes. People looking to limit their sugar intake and enhance their diet may enjoy the benefits of this product” … Oh well forget the diet benefit. Try it for fun.

We were biting on lemons and cherry tomatoes in a shock. It was almost funny!

Thanks for looking and come back soon!

  1. Hmmm – not sure about taking tablets to alter the taste of food! Sounds like you had fun though! <=D

      Well its an experiment. I found the confused communication between my brain, sense of smell and taste buds quite funny and interesting. The effect lasts about 15 mins only. Worth trying! Its harmless .

  2. Acai berries are exremetly healthy. Their antioxidant numbers are off the charts in comparison to other high antioxidant foods, such as blueberries. Antioxidants can help you lose weight as they destroy free radicals’ in your body. Free radicals bind themselves to fat cells, making it difficult to achieve weight loss.The antioxidants in acai berries, along with the rest of their nutritional makeup, also helps with keeping up energy. This is why it’s referred to as the new workout cocktail’ according to Vogue magazine.You do not have to take the capsule format of the acai berry. I’ve recently found a puree that actually works well and tastes wonderful. Try Mona Vie. This has the actual skins and pulp of the fruits used. Juices without the skins and pulp lose a lot of their nutritional value. You can also find a drink suited for you. There is the regular version, one for more active people (glucosamine is added to promote joint health) and one for heart health (with omega-3).I personally know people that have seriously improved their health by taking acai berry and I am starting to take it myself. One person that took the Mona Vie I was talking about for heart health actually lowered their cholesterol by over 100 points. I hope you decide to try the acai berry! I’ve heard and seen nothing but great things happening!
