Former host of the Discovery Channel's Future Food and celebrity chef/owner of Chicago's renowned Moto, Homaro Cantu is bringing to the masses The Miracle Fruit Diet Cookbook. The miracle fruit is simply an all-natural berry that has no taste, but that temporarily alters your mouth's chemistry to make even the most bitter of foods taste delicious. Using this incredibly game-changing fruit promises a whole new world of no-sugar recipes, which Cantu has written in an easy-to-use, comfort food style.
From sugar-free pancake syrup to healthy sweet-and-sour sauce, The Miracle Fruit Diet Cookbook will change the way you cook, eat, and live. Cantu has set up a system to ensure that the miracle fruit is readily available, so everyone can experience the food revolution for themselves. And the book will come with a starter kit of berries that Homaro will supply.
What is a "miracle berry"?
The miracle fruit is a berry that contains miraculin and is almost tasteless when eaten alone. But the miraculin in this little berry binds to the tongue's taste buds, distorting the tongue's sweetness receptors and causing sour foods to taste sweet. The effect lasts anywhere from fifteeen minutes to an hour, and any sugarless, bitter, or acidic foods that a person eats during that time will taste lusciously sweet. With just one miracle berry, which has been commonly used in its native Africa since at least the 18th century, a person can enjoy a healthier, more delicious version of the foods he or she already likes.
