Positive And Negative Effects When Consuming Papaya And Milk Simultaneously?
What is feared is that the acidity of the fruit and milk consumed can trigger an ulcer recurrence or increase in stomach acid. Actually this does not always happen because it also depends on the condition and digestive abilities of each person.
The acidity of the papaya fruit does not necessarily increase stomach acid. Milk is also not always acidic. From research, the pH of milk ranges from 6.3-8.5 depending on the production process. Dairy products do exist that are acidic, namely yogurt where the pH can reach 4.4.
Therefore, if you previously had no digestive problems, there is no problem if you consume fruit and milk together. To reduce the "acid effect" you can consume fruit or milk after meals or not on an empty stomach.
As for allergies, this also really depends on each individual. Someone whose body is allergic to milk considers milk protein as a dangerous substance even though in reality it is not dangerous. Milk allergy may be related to the content of casein and whey in milk. People who are allergic to milk can try to use formula products that are hypoallergenic or can avoid milk and dairy products. If you were not allergic to milk before, then you don't need to worry. You will not become allergic to milk because of regular consumption of milk.
