Can We Eat Apple and Pear Together? (Expert Answer)

Short Answer: It is generally safe to eat apple and pear together or one after another. Because there is no scientific or Ayurvedic reason to avoid this combination.

Apple and pear both are healthy foods.

Apple contains vitamin A, vitamin E, vitamin B1, and antioxidants, while pear has vitamin B3, vitamin K, folate, and more minerals such as iron, calcium, magnesium, and zinc.

According to Ayurveda, apple and pear can be eaten together as a stewed dish, which is good for digestion and balancing the hormones.

But according to science, there is no evidence that eating apple and pear together has any specific benefits or harms, apart from their individual nutritional values.

As a nutritionist, my advice is to try first.

If after eating apple and pear together you experience any discomfort, such as bloating, gas, or diarrhea, then stop combining them.

And if you can tolerate, then continue.

However, you should be mindful of the quality and quantity of apple and pear you consume.

Because eating too much of any fruit can cause excess sugar intake, which can lead to weight gain, diabetes, and other health problems.

Whether you eat them together or not, you should always choose fresh, ripe, and organic apple and pear.

Because they have more flavor, nutrients, and fewer pesticides than unripe, overripe, or conventionally grown fruits.

You can store them in a cool, dry, and dark place for up to a week, or in the refrigerator for up to a month.

Do not store them in direct sunlight, near heat sources, or in plastic bags, as these can cause them to spoil faster.

Finally, remember, apple and pear are delicious and nutritious fruits that can be enjoyed in many ways.

You can eat them raw, cooked, juiced, or dried, as long as you wash them well and remove the seeds and stems.

They can also be added to salads, desserts, pies, jams, or sauces, to enhance the flavor and texture of your dishes.
