Having healthy taste buds is crucial if you are a foodie as it helps you get the best out of food items. But what if there are food items out there that can mess with your taste buds?
According to studies, pineapples have the ability to do so. The presence of bromelain, an enzyme which breaks down protein, has a bad impact on our taste bud and it also leaves us with a prickly feeling on our teeth.
Fortunately for us, the impact only lasts only a few hours or for the remainder of the day. You can reduce the effect by cooking the pineapple or letting it sit overnight.
This is because bromelain breaks down with time and heat. Also, the enzyme is present the most in the centre of the pineapple.
