Bitter Juice

Fruit and vegetable juices are wonderful nutrients, especially some of the bitter tasting vegetables are considered good for easing diabetic condition. At the same time, one needs to exercise caution while consuming large doses of juices with bitter taste. It’s known anecdotally that consumption of large doses of onion juice, especially on empty stomach, can cause severe health damage.

A few cases of people consuming bitter bottle gourd (“lauki” in Hindi) mixed with bitter gourd (“karela” in Hindi) had to be hospitalized. Here is the news story from Times of India. Even though, the details about their health condition and what actually may have caused the health issue is still being researched, isn’t it better to peel off the rind even from apparently sweet vegetables or fruits before the use in daily meals or juices?
