So, pineapple can ther be good, but it always makes my teeth hurt (sensitivity). Another thing I noticed is that my tongue hurts! It's like I burned my entire tongue! LOL so weird. Does your tongue hurt when you eat pineapple? lol

my lips get itchy and my mouth feels weird...so I know where you're coming from.

here's a Chinese trick I learned from my family - before you eat pineapple, take a small bowl, put water in it and add a nice bit of salt. make it almost as salty as an ocean. dip the pineapple into the salt water before eating. for some reason, it takes away the sting.

it's really bizarre how it works. my bf was eating pineapple just the other day and complained his mouth felt funny, and I made the salt water, and he said no problems after.

something about tropical fruit and salt. locals Bajans LOVE eating mangoes in the sea...

Pineapple doesnt bother me at all. I almost wonder if you have an allergy to it. For years I drank cow milk and thought it made everyones throat thick. No, I was just allergic to it. I would think about going to an allergist and gettimg that checked if I were you.

that too...just watch it. if you feel your mouth swelling or throat closing, then you may want to head to a hospital.....

Pineapple has an enzyme called Bromelain in it which can irritate your mouth. The bromelain also makes pineapple juice a great meat tenderizer. It's just when it tenderizes your mouth, instead of your main dish, it can be a bit painful. Salt water destroys the enzyme, as does cooking.

I don't think I am allergic to it. :) It's like how lemonade and chocolate makes my throat hurt.

Yes, raw pineapple makes my mouth sore. I don't like it, but I think it's supposed to help the digestion. I'd rather not digest my mouth, thank you very much!
I really like cooked pineapple though - especially on pizza! :drool:

Cantaloupe makes my mouth sore! Never paid much attention to pineapple though. Interesting.
