The Miracle Fruit Farm is a grower, packer, and manufacturer of the world's highest quality fresh and formulated Miracle Fruit products.
Miracle Fruit (Synsepalum dulcificum) is a berry born on a small shrub native to Ghana, Africa. The fruit contains a unique glycoprotein called miraculin that binds to the taste receptors altering the natural flavors of food in such a way that undesirable flavors are masked and the desirable flavors are greatly enhanced. The effects of the miraculin have been shown to mask the overwhelming metallic taste food can get after chemotherapy that causes extreme nausea and can lead to patients developing an aversion to eating and unwanted weight loss. Doctors agree that chemo patients are able to enjoy a simple meal after using a Miracle Fruit, and this can help improve quality of life, reverse unwanted weight loss, boost nutrition, and help speed recovery.
Studies also suggest that Miracle Fruit may be used as an adjuvant for treating diabetic patients with insulin resistance, because this fruit has the ability to improve insulin sensitivity. Miracle Fruit can help diabetics and dieters naturally reduce their sugar intake without sacrificing their favorite foods, drinks, or desserts. It is not an artificial sweetener. It is an all-natural way to enjoy sweet flavors and keep blood glucose levels in the target range without the risk of overloading with unwanted carbohydrates.
The effects are experienced by moving the pleasant tasting fruit or melting tablet over the tongue. The miraculin will bind to the tastes receptors and the flavor masking and flavor enhancing effect can be experienced. The unaltered flavors of food will be restored when the miraculin's bond with the taste receptors is broken through the natural course of eating, drinking, or swallowing. The duration of the effect will vary by the individual and depends on how much is eaten or drunk, but for most it lasts about an hour.
