Go from Sour to Sweet in No Time Flat

The berry referred to as "miracle fruit," "miraculous berry," and "sweet berry" makes sour foods taste sweet. No more puckering up due to eating lemons, dill pickles, grapefruits, and limes if the pulp of "miracle fruit" has been allowed to coat the sides of the mouth and the taste buds on the tongue. A variety of sour foods will taste sweet thanks to this berry that originated in south Africa. The "miracle fruit" berry does have a rather sweet tang to it and that tang is quite mild. The magic of making sour foods, bitter foods, and acidic foods taste sweet is due to the "miracle fruit" containing a miraculin. Miraculin actually binds to taste buds on the tongue and that binding makes sour foods taste nice and sweet. The "miracle fruit" berry works well in changing sour to sweet for about 30 minutes. After 30 minutes, it will be time to pucker up again or eat another berry. In southern Florida, and in Hawaii, "miracle fruit" plants can be grown, but the plants do best if grown in containers. Tablets, made from the berries of the miracle fruit plant, can be purchased in stores and online. The tablets work well at making your grapefruit juice or orange juice taste a bit like maple pancake syrup. Instead of trying to grow "miracle fruit" or buying "miracle-fruit" tablets, I would just avoid sour stuff. Photo: Red berries that change sour to sweet.

This looks like something worth learning about @Corbin5 but like you, probably I will just skip those foods that need help!

It has proven to be beneficial to patients undergoing chemotherapy because it does away with the metal taste in the mouth that so many suffering from chemo experience. Beneficial to diabetics too.

An interesting berry that came into use in South Africa in the 18th century.

@Corbin5 From sour to sweet its really great to be able to have and use something like that. Videos in Spain are sometimes blocked for reasons unknown to us personally.

@lovinangelsinstead21 I added another video and I think that will work. It is said that for those undergoing chemotherapy, the berry removes the metal taste from the mouth that often results during chemotherapy.

It makes drinking black coffee nice and sweet, which sounds pretty cool to me. No need to add sugar to coffer, perhaps tea too.

@nomus24g The bushes to plant in containers are sold online, but they do cost a bit more than I would want to pay.

Yes, the berry is beneficial to diabetics and also claims to help with weight loss. Maybe it makes good-for-you foods taste like dessert.

I have never tried them. The berry does remove the metal taste from the mouth that chemotherapy patients often have a side effect.

Or you could just not eat the sour foods.... The only thing I think I might use it with would be grapefruit.

Yes, no sugar need be added to grapefruit if a "miracle berry" has been chewed.

I remember I have read about those berries, because they contain "miraculin" and this name made me smile. I thought it was a joke.
