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

Short Answer: It is generally safe to eat apples and guavas together or one after another.

Apples and guavas both are healthy foods.

Apples contain vitamin C, potassium, and dietary fiber, and guavas have vitamin C, vitamin A, and antioxidants.

According to Ayurveda, it is generally recommended to eat fruits separately to ensure optimal digestion and avoid any potential digestive disturbances.

However, there is no specific mention of consuming apples and guavas together being harmful.

But according to science, there is no evidence to suggest that eating apples and guavas together is unsafe.

Both fruits have health benefits and do not have known adverse interactions when consumed together.

As a nutritionist, my advice is to try first.

If after eating apples and guavas together you experience any side effects, then stop combining them.

And if you can tolerate, then continue.

However, you should be mindful of the quality and quantity of apples and guavas you consume.

Because overconsumption of any food can lead to digestive issues, and it’s important to maintain a balanced diet.

Whether you eat them together or not, you should always choose ripe and fresh fruits.

Because unripe or overripe fruits may not provide the same nutritional benefits and could potentially cause digestive discomfort.

You can store them in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight to maintain their freshness.

Apples can be stored in the refrigerator to extend their shelf life, while guavas are best kept at room temperature until they ripen.

Do not store them in airtight containers as they need air circulation to prevent spoilage.

Finally, remember, moderation is key when it comes to consuming fruits.

It’s also important to wash them thoroughly before eating to remove any pesticides or contaminants.
