ABOUT MIRACLE FRUIT
Miracle fruit (Synsepalum dulcificum) is a plant native to West Africa.
Miracle fruit contains Miraculin, a glycoprotein that binds to the sweet receptors on the tongue - a property that is potentially helpful for people whose sense of taste has been disturbed for any reason (e.g. after medical treatment).
WHAT PEOPLE SAY
Lee-Ann, Dietitian, Tasmania
Great Friday when you can have an impact on a patient who has been suffering from sour taste for 6 months due to a IVIG drug [Intravenous immune globulin] everything tasted sour until today!.. instantly with half a cube apple juice and sandwiches "taste normal" her response "that's insane".
Jack, Gold Coast
What an amazing sensation this is. The new cubes are more effective than the previous melting tablets. We are enjoying treating our mates and seeing their astonished faces when they suck on a lemon or other acidic fruits then keep on sucking. I know there's more to this medical wonder than a party trick but l still enjoy the fun. Just when l thought I had experienced most things life has to offer, along came Rubyberry, amazing.
Judith, North Queensland
It definitely works, Rubyberry gave me my taste buds back. I lost 26 kgs through chemo because I could not taste food. I am so happy I tried them, they worked for me. Losing our taste buds is an obvious problem as we need nourishment to keep us healthy. I discussed this with my Oncologists and they were happy for me to try the Rubyberry.
MEET THE TEAM
Our goal is to inform Australians, in particular healthcare practitioners, of the potential taste-modifying benefits of Miracle fruit for those people whose sense of taste has been disturbed for any reason.
In doing this, we aim to establish Australia's first commercial Miracle fruit farm.
