In addition, people with cold grapes and bad stomachs should not eat too much. Secondly, we must also note that the following foods cannot be eaten at the same time as the grapes!
1, grape + milk
Grapes will strengthen the acidity of the stomach, milk is difficult to digest and absorb, and severe cases may lead to diarrhea.
2, grape + iron supplement, calcium supplement
Citrate is like a “iron stone”. If you are taking iron supplements and calcium supplements, remember not to eat with the grapes, because the iron and calcium will be absorbed by the acid, and the iron and calcium will solidify. Together, it becomes a stone. It is recommended to take at least half an hour before eating.
3, grape + water
Drinking water immediately after eating grapes may cause diarrhea soon. Because grapes and water, gastric acid are rapidly oxidized and fermented, it will accelerate intestinal peristalsis and cause diarrhea.
4, grape + sulfonamides, digestive enzymes
Grapes contain acidic ingredients such as tartaric acid, which changes the pH of the stomach and affects the absorption of the drug. Sulfonamides for the treatment of urinary tract infections have a high solubility in an alkaline environment, but are easily crystallized in an acidic environment.
Some digestive enzymes can play a good role in an alkaline environment, but are easily destroyed in an acid-excessive environment, thereby losing efficacy. The above drugs are also preferably taken apart from the grapes for half an hour.
