this is one of my favorite fruit...how bout you?
and now the SEASON of PERSIMMON is back!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
yipeeee~~~~[and im munching it while doing this post...XP]
BUT what you do not know is.........
1. Persimmons Cannot Be Eaten On An Empty Stomach.
Contains more tannin and pectin, in an empty stomach under the effect of gastric acid, lumps of various sizes will formed, if these lumps can not reach the pyloric intestine, it will remain in the stomach to form gastric persimmon stone. The stone original is as small as apricots and persimmon seeds nu, but will tend to get larger if naturally expelled from the stomach, it will cause diospyrobezoar the digestive tract obstruction, resulting in upper abdominal pain, vomiting, and even vomiting blood and other symptoms. During surgery, persimmon stone as big as a fist was found in the stomach. If there’s food in the stomach then the persimmon stone formation in the stomach can be avoided .
2. Persimmon Skin Should Not Be Eaten
Some people feel that eating persimmon fruit together with the skin taste betten than just eating the flesh by itself. Scientifically this is not advisable because the vast majority of persimmon tannin in concentrated in the skin. If eaten together with its skin the formation of gastric persimmon stone is easier, especially when the astringent process is incomplete, as its skin contains more tannic acid.
3. Do not eat persimmon together with high-protein crabs, fish, shrimp and other foods
In Chinese medicine, crab and persimmon are considered “cold foods”, therefore they cannot be eaten together. From the perspective of modern medicine, crab, fish and shrimp contains high level of protein and thus under the effect of the tannic acid, it is easy to solidified into blocks, namely, stomach persimmon stone.
so not every fruit skin can eat...
for persimmon....peel it!
live a healthy life.....:)
