Summary
Though sugar provides the energy that is needed by the body to function properly, intake of sugar also adds to the overall calorie count in one’s body. Hence, we have an increasing number of cases related to obesity and diabetes. In order to solve this problem, scientists at the University of Wisconsin- Madison are working on a “sweet” protein that can allow one to satisfy one’s “sweet tooth” without adding much to the calorie woes. The plant euble, which is found in West Africa, is being used for this purpose. The pulp of the fruit is extremely sweet but unlike sugarcane, carbohydrate is not responsible for its sweetness. This plant contains a protein called brazine. It is a sweet protein and it is 2000 times sweeter than sugar. Scientists at the university have created a synthetic version of brazine in the laboratory by utilizing the actual molecular structure of euble plant. This synthetic version can now be used commercially depending on further tests.
