I've been writing about Miracle Fruit today. It's a bit of a gift for bloggers and journalists and has been likened to something out of Willie Wonka's Chocolate Factory, and other flights of fancy. But to sell as a content piece, it just has to be factual - and still fascinating, or at least, interesting.
For anyone who doesn't know, Miracle Fruit produces miraculin, which sits on the human tongue and interacts with the taste buds to make practically everything taste sweeter. For all the mums out there who are trying to get their offspring to take their nasty medicine, it could be a godsend.
And because it's not sugar, or any of those rather iffy sweeteners, it could benefit lots of other groups as well. If you want to lose weight, for example, or if you are diabetic, you could eat only the things you need to eat after making them taste like the things you want to eat.
I only found out about it last night when hubby came home from the pub. He'd picked up a discarded copy of The Sun which had a piece on it. I found lots more info on the web, and you can too if you start here.
