The miracle berry

The article on the BBC news website seems to show that 'Big Business' is once again flexing its muscles to prevent the smaller men from gaining a foothold and marketing a product which will benefit a lot of people.

The product is an extract from the berry of 'Synesepalum dulcificum'

Taken from the BBC News website (

Grown in Africa, first documented in 18th Century

Acts on the sour receptors of the tongue, turning sour tastes sweet

Effect lasts 30 mins - two hours

Effect is destroyed in hot foods - eg coffee and baked foods

Renders an accompanying dry white wine sickly sweet

Great for diet control and for those who need to maintain a 'diabetic' control on their blood-glucose levels, it would appear that the American FDA are controlled by the sugar and sweeteners companies to maintain their control over what is consumed.
