Natalya Kruglova, a nutritionist and assistant at the Scientific, Clinical and Educational Center for Gastroenterology and Hepatology at St. Petersburg State University, told Prime about this. According to her, first of all, we are talking about people who have an allergic reaction to citrus fruits.
Also, tangerines are prohibited for children under one year of age. Then tangerines can be introduced into the child’s diet, but monitor the manifestation of allergic reactions, warned the expert.
Tangerines should be treated with caution by those who suffer from diseases of the digestive tract (gastric ulcer and duodenal ulcer, colitis, pancreatitis), especially if the disease is in the acute stage.
And finally, those who have diabetes should not get too carried away with these fruits. The fact is that these fruits contain a simple carbohydrate – fructose, so it is better to stop at two or three tangerines a day.
Earlier, Rospotrebnadzor told how to choose and store tangerines. It is worth buying tangerines if they are fragrant, elastic, the peel is easily separated, and the fruit itself has a uniform color. It must be remembered that ripe fruits are not stored for a long time and require a special storage regime.
