1. Kiwifruit will stick to the mouth
Many people who eat too much kiwifruit get the same discomfort in their mouth as if they had eaten too much pineapple, such as feeling tingling in their mouth or numbness in their tongue.
One possibility is that you are allergic to kiwifruit. If the symptoms are severe, don’t eat it first, but if you don’t have symptoms as long as the juice doesn’t get on your skin and lips, it’s best to use a spoon to take the pulp directly to your mouth.
Another explanation is that the calcium oxalate crystals or protease in kiwifruit are playing tricks. Low-ripeness kiwis have more calcium oxalate crystals, which may sting the mouth; proteinases may break down the proteins in the oral mucosa, causing discomfort.
If you don’t want to sting your mouth, you can choose to eat kiwifruit with a high degree of ripeness. Some studies have also found that yellow kiwis are less irritating.
2. Kiwifruit is high in vitamins
Many people assume that lemons are rich in vitamin C. In fact, compared to kiwifruit, lemons will have a much lower vitamin content.
The soft date kiwifruit has an even higher vitamin C content, with 116.4 to 430.8 mg per 100 grams, even more than the “king of vitamin C”, on the winter date (243 mg).
With just one or two kiwis, you can easily meet your daily vitamin C needs!
3. Kiwifruit is a laxative for many people
Part of the explanation for the laxative effect comes from the relatively rich dietary fiber, which in kiwifruit is 2.6 to 3.4 grams per 100 grams. Dietary fiber promotes bowel movement, making the stool more hydrated and allowing for smoother bowel movements.
No wonder for some people, kiwifruit is a proper “laxative”. The effect varies from person to person, but there’s nothing wrong with trying it.
4. Yellow and red kiwis taste sweeter
If you prefer a sweeter kiwifruit, you can choose yellow or red varieties, such as the yellow Huayou, Golden Peach and Golden Fruit, or the red Red Sun.
They have a higher soluble sugar content and lower soluble acid content, so they taste sweeter and have a softer texture than green kiwifruit.
Even better, kiwifruit has a glycemic index (GI) of about 38 to 52, which is a low GI fruit, so people with sugar control can also eat one or two to satisfy their cravings.
5. Kiwifruit is not really a problem to eat
Many people find it troublesome to eat kiwis because they have a lot of little hairs on their skin, so peeling and peeling them is not very convenient.
But in fact, eating kiwis can be quite simple.
It’s very easy to take a soft, hard, ripe kiwi, divide it in half with a knife, and then eat it like a pudding, digging in with a small spoon.
6. Kiwifruit do not buy too much at once
It is well known that kiwis come in only two forms: hard …… and rotten (one misses just the right amount of softness ……).
Kiwis, like bananas, are fruits whose ripening to aging process develops quickly. Once the flesh starts to soften, it’s all over the place, prone to rot and trauma.
If you buy too many at once, the most likely result is that they will either all be hard, or you will eat the whole box within three days.
Good news: the kiwis are soft. Bad news: the kiwis are all soft.
