Can We Eat Banana and Carrot Together? (Expert Answer)

Short Answer: It is generally safe to eat banana and carrot together or one after another. Because there is no scientific proof that this combination can harm your health.

Banana and carrot both are healthy foods.

Banana contains potassium and vitamin B6, and carrot has beta-carotene and vitamin K.

According to Ayurveda, banana and carrot are incompatible foods that should not be eaten together or one after another.

This combination can cause indigestion, gas, bloating, and acidity.

But according to science, there is no evidence that eating banana and carrot together can harm your health.

In fact, some studies suggest that combining fruits and vegetables can enhance their antioxidant effects.

As a nutritionist, my advice is to try first.

If after eating banana and carrot together you experience any discomfort or side effects, then stop combining them.

And if you can tolerate, then continue.

However, you should be mindful of the quality and quantity of banana and carrot you consume.

Because too much of any food can cause problems, such as excess sugar from banana or excess vitamin A from carrot45.

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

Because they have more nutrients, flavor, and fewer pesticides than unripe, old, or conventional ones.

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

Do not store them in direct sunlight, near heat sources, or in plastic bags.

These conditions can reduce their shelf life and quality.

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

Banana can boost your energy, mood, and digestion.

Carrot can improve your vision, skin, and immunity. Enjoy them in moderation and with variety.
