Miracle Fruit - Try Something Different !
Miracle fruit also sometimes called miracle berry is a unique berry from the Tropics of West Africa that acts as a natural sweetener. The fruit contains a harmless glycoprotein which temporarily binds your taste buds which can cause even the sourest food to taste sweet.
This fruit is starting to be used a lot in culinary dishes and its making for some very interested results. Not only can it act as a low calorie sweetener it can actually change the taste of many foods completely. Imagine biting into a lemon and tasting nothing but sweetness.
The magic fruit is being used in cooking, baking and even as an ingredient for mixed drinks. In places like Japan there are café’s that specifically sell sugar free deserts made with the berry or other dishes made with the miracle fruit berry.
Miracle fruits scientific name is synsepalum dulcificum and it is a plant that is usually grown in tropical climates. The plant has hairy green leaves and bears a red berry that is picked and eaten or used.
Tasting parties have also become quite the rage. A typical wonder fruit party will serve dishes such as citrus fruit, dark chocolate, wine, beer and other drinks and fruits. The idea is to eat the berry first and see what a different taste and texture you discover in these common foods.
The berry fruit is not only fun but has real health properties. Think about it you may not be a big fan of certain healthy items such as fruits and vegetables but when eaten after eating this fruit they take on a totally different taste. This allows you to eat a wider range of food which some much healthier options that still tastes great.
You can also make certain dishes with no sugar at all and with a magic fruit first they will taste just as delicious with no sugar in the recipe. This allows for a lot of healthy eating while consuming fewer calories with the same meal.
The wonder fruit has only been around the United States for a decade or so but has been used by Native Africans for centuries. They eat the fruit directly before a meal to add a natural sweetness to their food.
Miracle berry has no known side effects. You can eat the berry directly, cook it into other dishes or use one of the many miracle berry fruit supplements available on the market.
