Consuming poisonous fruits can cause serious health problems

re you aware that eating fruits that have calcium carbide can cause damage to your intestines?

Calcium carbide is used by some people in the country to quickly ripen mangoes, bananas, and other fruits. Are you aware that eating fruits that have calcium carbide can cause damage to your intestines? The Food Safety and Standards Authority of India (FSSAI) has prohibited the use of calcium carbide as a chemical. Mangoes can become contaminated with the residues of this chemical, which can lead to serious health complications.

According to FSSAI, calcium carbide, also known as ‘limestone’, is a chemical compound. In India, it is used to ripen fruits quickly. Eating such ripe fruits can also cause stomach ulcers, insomnia, brain problems, nervous system malfunction, and liver problems.

Some people use calcium carbide to ripen fruits, especially mangoes, quickly. This is a dangerous and illegal method. FSSAI has banned it in India. But you can easily find it in grocery stores in Bihar. Wholesale fruit sellers in Bihar also use it to ripen fruits.

Both calcium carbide and acetylene gas can be harmful to health. Exposure to these can cause symptoms such as shortness of breath, chest pain, headache, vomiting, and dizziness.

Fruits ripened with calcium carbide are tasteless and less nutritious. In addition, they may also contain harmful chemicals that can pose a threat to health. Mangoes ripened with calcium carbide have an uneven color. Some parts may be green, some yellow, and some red.

These mangoes have an unusual shine, which is not found in naturally ripened mangoes. These mangoes may have more wrinkles, especially near the stalk. Mangoes ripened with calcium carbide have a strong and unpleasant odor, which is caused by the acetylene gas.

Mangoes ripened with calcium carbide may taste raw or underripe, even though they may look ripe. These mangoes have less sweetness and may also be tasteless. Mangoes ripened with calcium carbide may be hard on the outside, even if they are soft on the inside. Even after ripening, these mangoes may be abnormally soft.

Calcium carbide ripened mangoes are often sold at cheaper prices. These mangoes may hit the market before or after the season. If you notice any of these symptoms, it is likely that the mangoes are ripened with calcium carbide. It is better not to consume such mangoes.
