What is it? A little pill that changes the way your tongue tastes? BELIEVE IT. The future is here my friends and it’s allowing you to eat lemon after delicious lemon. SEE YA LATER SCURVY!
Now, put on your Science Hats for a moment with me will you?
A protein called Miraculin, found in the Synsepalum Dulcificum species of berry otherwise known as “Miracle Fruit” is freeze dried and converted into tablet form. As it melts in your mouth, it coats the tongue, blocking the sour and bitter receptors and allowing you enjoy sour and otherwise undesirable tastes.
ESSENTIAL INFO: This little tablet is not psychedelic in any way. Consenting and adventurous adults of varying ages and sexes gathered around a table of snacks on one fateful evening in New Jersey. Their impressions are recorded below.
NON ESSENTIAL INFO: It tastes a little like stale raisins.
