Four seas net: litchi taste sweet, has' fruit king 'the name. Litchi is rich in sugar, which can replenish energy and enhance nutrition. Some studies have proved that litchi has nourishing effect on brain tissue, which can effectively improve insomnia, forgetfulness, mental fatigue and other diseases. So what should we pay attention to when eating litchi?
How to eat litchi correctly
1. Drink some salt water first:
Before eating litchi, you can drink salt water or Prunella herbal tea, winter melon soup, mung bean soup and other fire-fighting food, which can effectively prevent fire. Or use 20-30g of raw ground pot lean meat or pig bone soup to drink, can effectively prevent litchi disease.
2. Salt water immersion:
Peel off the shell of litchi, but do not peel off the white layer of film. After washing, soak in 30% salt water, soak for an hour, then take it out, peel off the white film and eat it. After soaking in salt water, the fire gas of litchi will be reduced to a large extent. If you want to keep litchi for a long time, you can peel off the white film directly, and then soak the pulp in light salt water for an hour, and then take it out and put it into the fresh-keeping box, and put it into the frozen layer of the refrigerator.
3. Dewdrop litchi:
Dew litchi is a kind of fresh litchi plucked from the tree before dawn, before the dew goes away. These litchi absorb the sunshine of the day, and then pass through the temperature and cool of the night, so the heat has been reduced. It will not only taste more delicious, but also won't have the problem of burning.
4. Eat the fruit film:
When we peel the litchi shell, there is a thin white film on the flesh, which is a bit astringent. Generally, we peel it off, but if we want to prevent the fire, we suggest that we eat the film together, and then eat the white pedicle of the litchi in the bottom of the pulp, which can also prevent the fire.
Notes on eating litchi
1. Don't eat lychees on an empty stomach:
If you eat a lot of Litchi on an empty stomach, it may lead to hypoglycemia, dizziness, cold sweat and cold hands and feet. The reason for these situations is that litchi contains a large amount of fructose, which can stimulate insulin secretion. The insulin secreted is only sensitive to glucose, while fructose needs to be transformed in the process of glucose transformation. When the invertase is not enough, glucose will be reduced, and insulin will continue to be secreted, which will lead to hypoglycemia. At the same time, eating litchi on an empty stomach will stimulate the secretion of gastric mucosa and digestive fluid, resulting in stomach pain and distention. It is recommended to eat litchi between meals.
3. Do not overdose:
Eating too much lychee and eating too little can easily lead to 'sudden hypoglycemia'. At this time, dizziness, thirst, nausea, sweating, stomachache, panic and other phenomena will occur. In serious cases, coma, convulsion, arrhythmia and other symptoms will occur. These symptoms are caused by 'sudden hypoglycemia' after excessive consumption of litchi, which is called 'Litchi acute poisoning' or 'Litchi disease' in medicine.
Because most of the sugar in litchi is fructose, it can be converted into glucose by a series of enzyme catalysis after being absorbed by the body, and then it is oxidized and utilized by tissue cells. If you eat too much at one time, it will lead to a lot of lower blood sugar content than normal and cause hypoglycemia.
2. Don't only pay attention to gorgeous appearance when purchasing:
The litchi with gorgeous appearance looks very good indeed, but we should not be fooled by it. Hydrochloric acid and dyed litchi have been exposed by the media. When purchasing, we should pay attention to the bright and dark ones. You can rub it gently with your hand. If there is any residual color on your hand, it means it is dyed litchi. If it smells pungent, it may be treated with hydrochloric acid. Do not buy it.
The novel eating method of litchi, which was widely spread on the Internet before - dipping in soy sauce, mustard, etc., is really a strange attempt. It's worth trying to change a taste and add another flavor.
5. Do not eat lychees with blisters:
At present, many litchi in the market are soaked with water, which contains a lot of water. A large amount of water will dilute the digestive fluid after entering the gastrointestinal tract, causing dyspepsia.
4. Take care of diabetes patients:
Litchi has a high sugar content, so it is not suitable for diabetic patients. In addition, people with Yin deficiency and fire, dry sore throat, swollen gums and strong liver fire are not suitable for eating.
