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

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

Milk and apple both are healthy foods.

Milk contains calcium and protein and apple has fiber and vitamin C.

According to Ayurveda, milk and apple should not be consumed together or one after another.

Ayurveda believes that each food has a distinct combination of tastes and energies, and mixing foods with different energetics can cause indigestion, fermentation, gas, bloating, and the creation of toxins.

But according to science, there is no evidence that milk and apple are incompatible or harmful when eaten together.

Science suggests that the browning of apple slices is caused by a chemical reaction between oxygen and enzymes in the apple.

This reaction can be slowed down by dipping the apple slices in liquids that are acidic, salty, or alkaline.

Milk is slightly acidic, so it may help prevent the apple from oxidizing. Interestingly, milk did fairly well in preventing the apple from oxidizing in an experiment.

As a nutritionist, my advice is to try first.

If after eating milk and apple together you experience any discomfort, such as stomach ache, nausea, or bloating, then stop combining them.

And if you can tolerate them, then continue.

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

Because too much of anything can be bad for your health.

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

Because they are less likely to contain harmful chemicals, hormones, or pesticides that can affect your health.

You can store milk in the refrigerator for up to a week and apple in a cool and dry place for up to a month.

Do not store milk in warm or sunny places, as it can spoil quickly.

Do not store apple in a plastic bag, as it can trap moisture and cause rotting.

Finally, remember, milk is a good source of calcium and protein, but it can also cause allergies or intolerance in some people.

Apple is a nutritious fruit, but it can also contain a lot of sugar, so eat it in moderation.
