See The Bad Effects of Eating Banana And Groundnut Together On The Body
The banana and peanut combination is a common meal among Ghanaians, but they are unaware that it is very harmful to the body for the following reasons:
Peanuts, also called ground nuts, take around 4 to 5 hours to digest because of their high protein content. This makes them one of the hardest to digest foods. Peanuts contain a mixture of all the major nutrients such as carbohydrates, proteins and fats in large quantities
And because of this, bile salt, which is an emulsifier, is the only part of the enzyme in the body that can break down in peanuts for other enzymes to work on.
But banana as a fruit doesn’t take all these long processes to digest because it’ s a fruit and bananas only take 2 hours to digest
However, the digestion of bananas does not take place in the stomach, but in the small intestine. Due to the addition of peanut to the meal, the bananas spend so much time in the stomach due to their difficulty in reaching the intestines on time.
Usually bananas have nothing to do with bile acid as it is very damaging to the metabolism. When the fight continues and the metabolism is complete, the food in the body is seriously fermented, and this fermentation leads to an increase in the acid produced during digestion, which affects various organs such as the liver, kidneys, intestines and other vital organs in the body.
The acidity causes heaps, kidney stones and disorders, liver problems, tumors, etc.
From the explanation above, it would be seen that the main reason for this is that fruits digest faster than protein foods and fruits should be eaten alone without a combination.
Finally, fruits should be eaten an hour before eating or three hours after eating for health reasons.
