OR-Taste delivers the power of miraculin (found in the miracle berry) that when consumed before eating, may improve the taste of food. OR-Taste contains 100% pure miracle fruit powder that may help with abnormalities in taste perception by masking unpleasant food taste (like metallic flavor). People with taste alterations may be able to enjoy a simple meal after using OR-Taste, and this can help improve quality of life, reverse unwanted weight loss, and help speed recovery.

Synsepalum dulcificum (commonly known as miracle fruit or miracle berry) is a plant native of West Africa and known for its berry that, when eaten, causes foods to alter its taste, specially turning sour foods such as lemons and limes into sweet taste1 . This effect is due to a unique glycoprotein called the miraculin that binds to the tongue's taste buds, causing the activation of sweet perception and inhibiting the tongue’s taste of sour flavors while maintaining a neutral pH in the mouth2. This effect lasts until the protein is washed away by saliva.
Dr. Cusnir conducted a clinical trial using fresh Miracle berries in patients with taste alterations. A very common side-effect produced by strong medications is the bitter and metallic tastes within the mouth.
The berries mask these unpleasant types of taste, motivating users to eat better and therefore obtaining the necessary nutrition.3
The fruit is commonly used as a novelty, but it is also valuable for medicinal and dietary purposes4. This berry has a very low sugar content preventing the alteration of the glycemic index specially in diabetic people. Miracle Fruit can help diabetics and dieters naturally reduce or even eliminate their sugar intake without sacrificing their favorite foods, drinks, or desserts. It is not an artificial sweetener. It is an all-natural way to enjoy sweet flavors and keep blood glucose levels in the target range without the risk of overloading with unwanted carbohydrates.
