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

Short Answer: It is generally safe to eat apple and mango together or one after another. Because there is no scientific proof that they interact negatively or positively with each other.

Apple and mango both are healthy foods.

Apple contains dietary fiber and vitamin C, and mango has vitamin A and potassium.

According to Ayurveda, ripe mango is sweet and heating, and balances Vata and Pitta, while unripe mango is sour, astringent and cooling, and aggravates the doshas.

Apple is good for balancing Kapha, and cooked apple helps to create ojas and ease constipation.

Ayurveda advises to avoid eating fruits with other foods, especially dairy, as it can cause indigestion and gas.

But according to science, there is no evidence that eating apple and mango together or one after another is harmful or beneficial for health.

Both fruits are rich in antioxidants, which can help prevent cancer and heart disease.

They also provide energy and nutrients to the body.

However, some people may be allergic to either fruit, or have difficulty digesting them due to fructose intolerance or irritable bowel syndrome.

As a nutritionist, my advice is to try first.

If after eating apple and mango together you experience any side effects, such as itching, swelling, abdominal pain, bloating, diarrhea, or nausea, 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 mango you consume.

Because eating too much of any fruit can cause weight gain, tooth decay, or blood sugar spikes.

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

Because they have more flavor, nutrients, and fewer pesticides than unripe, processed, or conventional fruits.

You can store apple and mango at room temperature until they are ripe, and then refrigerate them for up to three days.

Do not store them in direct sunlight, near heat sources, or in plastic bags, as they can spoil faster.

Finally, remember, apple and mango are delicious and nutritious fruits that can be enjoyed in various ways.

You can eat them raw, make juice, smoothie, salad, chutney, or dessert with them.

You can also add spices, such as cinnamon, ginger, or cardamom, to enhance their flavor and health benefits.
