What Happens If you Eat Banana and Sprite? (Expert Answer)

Short Answer: If you accidentally eat banana and drink Sprite, you may feel sick and vomit due to the gas and sugar in Sprite reacting with the starch and protein in banana.

Banana and Sprite is a combination of a fruit and a carbonated drink.

If you accidentally eat banana and drink Sprite right after, you may experience nausea, bloating, or vomiting.

This is because banana contains starch and protein, and Sprite contains carbon dioxide and sugar.

Carbon dioxide can react with the acid in your stomach and create gas bubbles.

Sugar can also increase the osmotic pressure in your intestines and draw water into them.

These effects can cause your stomach and intestines to expand and contract, which can trigger the vomiting reflex.

Starch and protein can also slow down the digestion of Sprite, making the gas and sugar stay longer in your system.

It is quite uncommon to eat banana and drink Sprite together, as most people do not like the taste or the feeling of this combination.

You can try to drink water or ginger tea to soothe your stomach if you feel sick after eating banana and drinking Sprite.

You can also take antacids or anti-nausea medication if needed.

To avoid accidental eating or drinking of banana and Sprite, you can store them separately and not consume them at the same time.

You can also check the ingredients of any food or drink before you eat or drink it.

Finally, remember, banana and Sprite are not harmful by themselves, but they can cause discomfort when mixed.

It is best to eat and drink them separately and in moderation.
