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

Short Answer: It is generally safe to eat apple and orange together or one after another. Because there is no scientific proof that they are incompatible or harmful.

Apple and orange both are healthy fruits.

Apple contains fiber and vitamin C and orange has vitamin C, folate, and potassium.

According to Ayurveda, apple and orange have different tastes and energies, and they should not be eaten together or one after another.

Ayurveda believes that combining incompatible foods can create toxins in the body and cause digestive problems.

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

Science does not support the concept of food incompatibility or the idea that certain foods can create toxins in the body.

As a nutritionist, my advice is to try first.

If after eating apple and orange together you experience any side effects, such as gas, bloating, or nausea, then stop combining them.

And if you can tolerate, then continue.

However, you should be mindful of the quality and quantity of apple and orange you consume.

Because eating too much of any fruit can cause excess sugar intake and dental problems.

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

Because fresh and ripe fruits have more nutrients and flavor, and organic fruits have less pesticides and chemicals.

You can store them in a cool and dry place for up to a week, or in the refrigerator for up to a month.

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

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

You can eat them raw, cooked, juiced, or in salads, desserts, or smoothies.

They can also boost your immune system, prevent scurvy, and lower your blood pressure.
