We always want to give our customers the very best experience with Miracle Fruit as we know only too well how much fun it can be. After much research and product testing we have decided to change from selling sun dried fruit to freeze dried fruit. Some customers noticed that sun dried fruit had varying effects from berry to berry, some were effective, some were not. So in the interests of uniformity we have opted for freeze drying, a process which preserves the Miraculin in the fruit 100% of the time. Yes it is more expensive but we will be absorbing the cost and not passing it on to you the consumer in the form of higher prices.
