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

Short Answer: It is generally safe to eat apples and kiwis together or one after another. Because there are no known scientific reasons that suggest otherwise, and they can be part of a healthy diet.

Apples and kiwis both are healthy foodsApples contain vitamin C, potassium, and dietary fiber, and kiwis have vitamin C, vitamin K, and dietary fiber as well.

According to Ayurveda, combining foods with different tastes, energies, and post-digestive effects can overload the digestive fire (agni) and result in the production of toxins.

However, there is no specific mention of apples and kiwis being incompatible.

But according to science, there are no known adverse effects of consuming apples and kiwis together.

In fact, they are often combined in fruit salads and smoothies.

As a nutritionist, my advice is to try first.

If after eating apples and kiwis together can cause 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 kiwis you consume.

Because consuming a large amount of any food can lead to digestive discomfort, and it’s important to maintain a balanced diet.

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

Because they are likely to be more nutritious and free from harmful pesticides.

You can store them in a cool, dry place or in the refrigerator to extend their freshness.

Do not store them in direct sunlight or in a sealed container with other ethylene-producing fruits, as this can cause them to overripen quickly.

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

It’s also important to include a variety of fruits in your diet to ensure you get a range of nutrients.
