Frequently Asked Questions

Q. What is Miracle Berry?
A. The Miracle Berry (Synsepalum dulcificum) is a fruit native to West Africa. It is also known as Miracle Fruit or Miraculous Fruit. The berry is red in color and has a subtle tart flavor. Miracle berries contain the glycoprotein, Miraculin, within the pulp of the fruit and miraculin plays an active role in altering how the mind perceives tastes. The glycoprotein coats the taste buds, temporarily changing their shape, which causes the taste receptors to interpret certain flavors differently.
Q. What are differences between fresh miracle berries and miracle berry fruits tablets?
A. For one, cost. fresh miracle berries cost on average $3- $5, whereas, tablets are $12-$15 for a pack of 10, which is roughly $1.20-$1.50 each. In addition, each miracle berry tablet is created from the juice of three miracle berries. Furthermore, the method of consumption also differs. For the miracle berries themselves, you must suck on the berry to remove the skin and pulpy interior and swish the pulp around your mouth for about a minute. Then, spit out the seed. Throughout this process you must be careful not to bite into the seed because it will reverse the effects of Miraculin. The tablet, on the other hand, is very convenient and portable, requiring only that you place it in your mouth and swish it over your tongue until it dissolves. The fresh berry and the tablets produce similar effects but the length and strength of each vary from person to person. According to the L.A. times, one user felt the effects of each strongly for up to one and a half hours and maintained residual effects for two to three hours afterward. Another user found the effect to be mild and lasted less than an hour. Lots more information
