Why do you leave belém ‘normal’ food, and others do not

If you have an orange, a watermelon, or other fruit to your meal, you may find that your life is swallowed. Can that really hurt? Or you can get seeds, just eat them?

To the right is the biggest misunderstanding in the world: seeds can’t sprout in your stomach, ” says Jane van de Velde, of the Dutch fruit Growers Organisation (NFO). “So they’re really light.”

Many fruits you can in the nuts just to eat, or choking, such as grapes, kiwi, berries, strawberries and water melon, says Patricia Schutte, a nutrition expert at the Nutrition centre (voedingscentrum). “Well, a couple of sinaasappelpitjes can do no harm.”

“The pips of apples, pears and stone fruit can be a better not to swallow it.”

The seeds of apples, pears, and stone fruit (apricots, peaches, plums, nectarines, and cherries), you don’t swallow it. “These stones are sitting plantengiffen in your body, can be converted into cyanide, also called hydrocyanic acid are called.”

The only fijnkauwen of the ” pit ” is a dangerous one

But don’t worry: the hydrocyanic acid is only free if you have a pit fijnkauwt. “It’s a great pit area that is just uitgepoept, because it is not digested at all,” says Schutte. And if you’re in the pit, fine, daw, that’s not much of a problem. I’d be nuts not only may be ground in a food processor, or break it up with a blender.”

In apples and pears, is the least of hydrocyanic acid. The highest concentration is found in apricot kernels. Schutte: “There have been some jubelverhalen to find out more about the eating of apricot kernels.” According to her, that’s not true. “It’s just been proven that you can be sick when you have a whole raw apricot kernel diet. To do that, not at all!”

“It’s been proven that you can get sick if you are using a whole raw apricot kernel to eat.”

Plantengiffen are also available in blackcurrant, flax, bitter almonds, and cassava. A lot of hydrocyanic acid can be, for complaints such as an increased rate of breathing, headache, and dizziness provide. “If you have any symptoms following the swallowing of the stones, it is wise to have the physician’s advice”, advice Schutte.

What would you do with the seeds, do so, and if you can’t get them to eat? Just throw away seems to be the way to go. It’s going to be a new fruit to make it grow, ” says Van de Velde. “It’s a challenge and it takes a few years. The growers will stop any seeds in the soil for a new tree. Therefore, the stem and the fruit-tree in itself.”
