I ate grapes for breakfast and then got a really bad stomach ache. Why?
If they had seeds maybe a seed went down the wrong tube. They also could have been overripe. I've had overripe fruit before and it can cause stomach aches. I recommend drinking plenty of water and just being careful about what you eat until it passes.
Grapes contain a high level of fructose. Some people suffer from fructose intolerance or malabsorption, caused by enzyme deficiency to break down fructose. If you get a stomach ache after eating grapes, but not if you eat other fruits, then your problem is very unlikely to be due to fructose intolerance or malabsorption. You should consult a physician, if pain persists for more than 24 hours.
is the grapes unripe or sour? Some grapes which are sour may irritate yr stomach digestion especially in the morning. Try drinking more water to pass out the acidic through urination.
Apparently b/c of the fiber content, grapes can act as a laxative. It's possible your system wasn't prepared for that much fiber at one time.
Eating fruits, on an empty stomach, especially citrus fruits, may not be well tolerated by some people. Fruits should be consumed after having moderate breakfast containing cereals and proteins.
If you have some stomach infection, then also fruits with juices should be avoided. It might irritate your stomach further.
You've added the best answer here. Some fruits (lots of them) are "harsh" on the digestive system (like grapes). Some are "milder" (like bananas). I don't think too many people could comfortably tolerate grapes on an empty stomach in the morning.
Thanks Lisa HW! You are right, banana is good for an upset stomach. At the same time, Papaya, although being good for digestion should not be consumed on an empty stomach, but after having food. Otherwise it will do more harm than good.
Grapes do contain a lot of sugar, probably too much for the morning. For a stomach ache, and too much acid, you may want to try Mylanta or something similar.
It's tough to say why - there are a lot of good answers here as to what the case might be, but you can't even really be sure that it was the grapes. It might have been something you ate the night before or some kind of a parasite or other issue that had been present for a while and had only begun to show symptoms. Even stress can cause stomach aches.
Generally starting a day with fruits is good for the digestive system. But it depends on one’s digestive conditions and issues. Grapes will have a higher amount of citrus which might induce nausea when eating in the empty stomach. The acidity level will be increased in the bare stomach. Even if your mucous linings are fragile, the taste may irritate them and induce stomach pain. So, it is better to eat either some food before the fruit intake or take a mixture of non-citrus fruits more and few grapes to avoid acidity and other discomforts. You would have felt that while blenching the acid’s smell had raised up till throat. Better avoid sour and acidic fruits in the empty stomach.
Generally, if you eat a lot of fruits without anything else you will have a bad time. Hot snake city. This is because of the natural sugars in the fruits. They can act as a well.. digestive aid. Not only that but some things like grape skins aren't easily digested. So add all of that to an empty stomach and you're gonna have a bad time.
