Our Products

We are currently producing Miraculin extract as a freeze dried powder, a liquid spray and a tongue strip. These proteins serve as an untapped biological resource for innovation in food science technology, and hold massive potential for the modification of interactions between sweet-activating ligands and their respective receptors, thus opening the door for new experimentation on how the sense of sweet taste may be delivered by the food we eat.

What Are Protein Sweeteners?

Exponential growth in the population suffering from disease caused by large consumption of sugar has become a threat to human health. Artificial low calorie sweeteners in the market may have severe side effects. Naturally occurring sweet and taste modifying proteins are being seen as potential replacements for the currently available low calorie sweeteners. We are currently producing two proteins of the seven known protein sweeteners: Miraculin from the Miracle fruit Synsepalum dulcificum and Brazzein from the Oubli fruitPentadiplandra brazzeana. Miraculin is a natural sugar substitute, a glycoprotein extracted from the fruit commonly known as the Miracle fruit originating from West Africa. When Miraculin is placed into the mouth and taste buds are exposed to it (which binds to sweet receptors on the tongue), acidic foods which are ordinarily sour (such as citrus) are perceived as sweet. Brazzein was isolated from a fruit that also originates from West Africa, and is 500–2000 times sweeter than sucrose on a weight basis. This protein represents an alternative to other low-caloric sweeteners and may potentially be used for diabetics.
