Frequently Asked Questions

How to use Miracle Frooties (Miracle Fruit Tablets)?

Miracle Frooties are extremely simple to use: just dissolve a half (or whole) Frootie on your tongue. The effect will last from 15 minutes to 2 hours. When the effect wears off, everything tastes as before (lemons are sour again).

Does miracle fruit have any alternative names?

Yes: Miracle berry, miracle fruit, Synsepalum dulcificum, Frutto deimiracoli , Fruta maravillosa , Fruto milagro , Fruta de milagro , Frutamilagrosa , Sideroxylon dulcificum, Mirakelfrukten , Mirakelfrukt , Mirakelbaer , Mirakelbaer , Wunderbeere , Mirakelbes.

Is miracle fruit safe (side effects)?

Miracle fruit berry is safe and has no known side effects other than its temporary flavor alterations. It has been used for centuries in Africa and for decades in the US and Asia. In Japan, miracle fruit tablets have been on sale since 2006. Miracle berry tablets are made in a pharmaceutical clean room, free of any germs or dust. They contain no artificial additives (such as colorants or preservatives). However, and Miracle Frooties cannot guarantee your safety and you are purchasing and using miracle fruit at your own risk.

Our only caution is to please keep Miracle Frooties out of the reach of unsupervised children, as the effect could cause otherwise unpalatable substances to taste sweet. We also advise eating acidic and spicy foods in moderation, as they will affect your body in the same way they would without miracle fruit.

How long does the effect last?

It depends on the type of food, the strength of the miracle fruit, an individual’s tastebuds, the temperature and quantity of food eaten. It could wear off in about 15 minutes or last for almost two hours. The effect wears off with hot liquids (such as coffee) or foods.
