Miracle Berry earns its name with its miraculous & tricky sweetness.While the actual taste of the fruit's pulp & juice are subtle, it is the consumption of foods after having the berry that is surprising. Lasting for 30 minutes to two hours, all foods become magically sweet! Vinegar tastes like sweet wine, califlower like sweet apple & tomatoes sweeter than ever!
This effect can assist those who are looking to intake more food & calories. Chemotherapy patients who have lost their appetite will often use the Miracle Berry to help the medicine go down, so to speak. The metallic taste associated with chemotherapy treatment is altered & eating can become more appealing. This can help greatly with malnourishment as enjoyment in food can be found once again.
