straight from wikipedia:
<H2></H2>Because miraculin is a protein, it cannot be cooked as, when heated, proteins denature and lose their potency.[3] Additionally, its effects might be considered dangerous as, though miraculin does change the perception of taste, it does not change the food's chemistry. Therefore, the mouth is still vulnerable to the high acidity of some foods, such as lemon juice, which may result in oral ulcers if eaten in large quantities
