Makes sour things sweet. Really.

"The grapefruit was stunning, perhaps the best-tasting fruit I have ever eaten. The ones we had were pretty sweet already as grapefruit go, but with miraculin they were distinctly but not overly sweet, and the underlying grapefruit flavor came through beautifully. I had to stop myself from wolfing down several grapefruit."

Folks who take meds often have to give up grapefruit. It's a cryin' shame, that's what it is.

I had to give up grapefruit, which I like just the way it is.

I lost 25 pounds in the hope I wouldn't have to go on a no-grapefruit drug. Didn't happen and I promptly gained back 10.

On the other hand, apples of every variety taste better longer in Washington. These days my lunch often consists of an apple.

Best.
