May I ask, what moment can make you feel that spring is coming?
Is it gradually increasing sunshine hours? Or the weeping willow that has sprung up at the door?
However, for many Guangdong friends, it is only when they can eat that sweet and sour pineapple every year that they realize that spring has come.
In a blink of an eye, it’s time to eat “black pineapple” again.
However, some people think, what is the difference between a pineapple and an pineapple?
In fact, pineapple and pineapple are actually the same kind of fruit, both belong to the genus Bromeliad, just with different names, just like cherries and cherries, both belong to the same fruit. plant fruit.
But some people will ask, since they are the same type, why do the two taste different?
In fact, this is understandable, after all, the same fruit has different tastes, just like apples, red Fuji and Huang Marshal have their own advantages.
The reason why “pineapples” are produced is that in the process of pineapple training, the varieties preferred by consumers are selected, and the merchants can sell them at a good price. And intentional packaging promotion will make us feel that pineapple is a new fruit.
It is worth mentioning that in Taiwan, which is separated from us by the sea, pineapples have always been called pineapples.
When you eat pineapple, pineapple is eating you
Like many tropical fruits, pineapple is rich in nutrients, Rich in carbohydrate, protein, fat, vitamin A, B1.B2.C, protease and calcium, phosphorus, iron, organic acids, niacin, etc. .
Especially vitamin C has the highest content. At the same time, vitamin B can effectively nourish the skin, prevent dry and cracked skin, and at the same time eliminate body tension and enhance the body’s immunity.
However, some people find that when eating pineapple, they experience numbness, woodiness, tingling, and swelling on the tongue.
This phenomenon occurs because pineapples contain high amounts of bromelain, as well as 5-tryptamine and other ingredients.
After these ingredients enter the human body, it will strongly stimulate the oral mucosa and the surface of the tongue, which will cause discomfort such as numbness and tingling on the surface of the tongue.
And the glycosides and a large amount of bromelain contained in pineapple can decompose the protein in the human body, and it is easy to cause allergies after eating pineapple. These substances It will cause strong irritation to the mucous membranes of the lips, mouth and other parts, and it is easy to cause symptoms such as numbness and tingling.
If you soak pineapples in salt water for half an hour before eating, you can destroy these substances and avoid tongue tingling after eating.
In addition to pineapple, these tropical fruits can also tingle your tongue

Guisheguo, also known as glass fruit, is a very common fruit in Hainan, with a series of functions such as promoting blood circulation, relieving pain, and expelling wind and dampness. effect.
ThisThe skin of the fruit is very soft, with sweet and sour juice inside.
But this fruit contains more protease substances, which have strong irritant. Once eaten too much, the surface of the tongue will bleed and edema due to strong irritation.
If it is soaked in light salt water for about half an hour before eating, it can reduce the substances of these proteases and avoid bleeding and pain on the tongue.
(This thing looks like this?)
Second, unripe kiwi
The vitamin C content in kiwifruit is very high, and the taste is very sweet and sour, which is deeply loved by many people.
However, for immature kiwifruit, due to its rich protease, it can break down the proteins in the tongue and mouth, thereby destroying cells. After eating, a series of symptoms will appear on the tongue. Discomfort.
is because sugarcane contains a lot of crude fiber, when eating sugarcane, the tongue part It is easy to be rubbed by these coarse fibers, resulting in some micro-damages.
In addition to the high sugar content of cane, when salivary amylase converts sugar in the mouth into maltose, it also affects the tongue. and irritation of the oral mucosa.
In addition to soaking in salt water, what other methods can reduce the irritation of pineapple to the tongue?
Actually there is, that is —–cooked pineapple.
