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

Short Answer: It is generally safe to eat apple and yogurt together or one after another, unless you have a specific digestive condition that prevents you from doing so.

Apple and yogurt both are healthy foods.

Apple contains fiber and vitamin C, and yogurt has protein and calcium.

According to Ayurveda, fruit should not be combined with any dairy product, as it can cause indigestion, fermentation, and toxin formation.

Ayurveda also advises to eat fruit separately from other foods, preferably two hours before or after a meal.

But according to science, there is no conclusive evidence that apple and yogurt together are harmful for health.

Some studies suggest that eating fruit with yogurt may enhance the absorption of antioxidants and phenolic compounds from the fruit.

However, some people may experience bloating, gas, or diarrhea if they are lactose intolerant or have a fructose malabsorption disorder.

As a nutritionist, my advice is to try first.

If after eating apple and yogurt together you experience any digestive discomfort, then stop combining them. And if you can tolerate them, then continue.

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

Because too much of anything can be bad for your health.

Choose organic apples and plain or low-sugar yogurt, as they have fewer pesticides and additives.

Avoid flavored or sweetened yogurt, as they have more sugar and calories.

Also, limit your portion size to one apple and one cup of yogurt per day, as they can contribute to your daily calorie intake.

Whether you eat them together or not, you should always choose fresh and ripe apples and refrigerated yogurt.

Because they have the best taste and nutritional value.

Do not eat bruised or moldy apples, or expired or unrefrigerated yogurt, as they can cause food poisoning.

You can store apples in a cool and dry place for up to two weeks, or in the refrigerator for up to two months.

You can store yogurt in the refrigerator for up to two weeks after the sell-by date, or in the freezer for up to two months.

Do not store apples or yogurt in direct sunlight or near heat sources, as they can spoil faster.

Finally, remember, apple and yogurt are nutritious foods that can benefit your health in many ways.

Apple can help lower cholesterol, prevent constipation, and protect against cancer.

Yogurt can support your immune system, improve your bone health, and balance your gut microbiota.

However, moderation and variety are the keys to a healthy diet.

So, enjoy apple and yogurt as part of a balanced and diverse meal plan.
