Have you noticed that after eating fresh artichokes, that everything you eat or drink afterwards tastes sweeter? The reason is due to a molecule called ‘Cynarin‘ which inhibits your bitter taste receptors.Hence the reason why it is best to pair artichokes with bland food such as pasta, or that you shouldn’t eat artichokes before tasting wine. However the sweetness effect of ‘Cynarin’ isn’t nearly as pronounced as ‘miraculin‘ which comes from miracle fruit (Synsepalum dulcificum).
