Do's and Don'ts' of fruit combination
« on: June 09, 2009, 01:26:38 PM »
Due to the acidity and sugar concentration of different fruits, certain fruit combinations are easier to digest than others. Acid fruits combine well with sub-acid fruits. Sub-acid fruits combine well with sweet. However, acid fruits do not mix well with sweet fruits. Also, because of their particularly high water content, melons are the fastest to digest and therefore should be eaten alone.

Fruit Categories

Acid: Clementines, cranberries, grapefruit, kiwis, lemons, limes, oranges, pineapples, pomegranates, strawberries, tangerines.

Subacid: apples, apricots, berries, cherries, grapes, nectarines, peaches, pears, plums.

Sweet: bananas, dates, dried fruit, fresh figs, grapes (Muscat or Thomson), mangoes, papayas.

Melons: canary, cantaloupe, casaba, Christmas, honeydew, musk, Persian

Here are some fruits combinations :

  1. carrot, ginger, apple
  2. apple, cucumber, celery
  3. tomato, carrot, apple
  4. pearl, banana
  5. carrot, apple, pearl, mangoes
  6. orange, ginger, cucumber
  7. apple, cucumber, pearl
  8. melon, grape

It's better to consume fruits as they are. Combining and mixing them to make a shake or juice multiples our sugar, and lessens our fiber intake which defeats the purpose of eating healthy.

I kinda question this line of thinking that fruits should only be combined due to acidity and water content leading to difficulty in digestion.

1. We consume fruits due to the high fiber content. Fiber is not easily digestible which contributes to the slowing of digestion, cholesterol absorption, cleaning of the colon.

2. whatever you eat, the stomach will always be acidic (hydrochloric acid) and the small intestine will be basic (high bicarbonate content). The body will always have a very narrow pH range.

3. Fruits are generally low calorie. If you juice the fruits, you're basically drinking fructose and minimizing the effect of fiber thus increasing your blood sugar levels.

Tanong lang...

Since combination ng fruit juices ang pinag uusapan, i wonder if there's some truth to saying that when you eat green mango, you cannot eat another fruit like caimito kasi daw matamis sya? sasakit ang tsan mo... totoo ba?
