Taste Bud Changing Tomatoes

In Kazuhisa Kato's laboratory, they have created a new type of tomato that can trick your taste buds. If you eat one of these crazy tomatoes, about an hour afer you eat it things that would usually taste sour will taste surprisingly sweet. The ingredient in these taste changing tomatoes is miraculin. Miraculin is a molecule found in West African berries. These tomatoes would be great for Halloween! Imagine all the sour candies would taste super sweet!
