Sour things taste sweet…

…thanks to this miraculous berry:

People who eat the berry say that lemon juice tastes like lemonade and stout beer seems more like a milkshake. They add that after consuming Synsepalum dulcificum, rhubarb tastes like a sugar stick and strawberries taste like candy.

Work is underway to commercialize the “miraculin” protein that causes this effect, so that low-sugar foods will still taste sweet.
