Cabbage and Alfalfa Sprouts...
« on: September 03, 2008, 09:18:52 am »
Well, yesterday I ate some raw organic alfalfa sprouts and today I ate some raw organic cabbage...
After eating the alfalfa sprouts, I was left with a burning sensation in my throat.
While eating the cabbage, there was a similar but less intense "burning" in my mouth. The burning was similar to what you would expect from spicy foods, but still kind of different, and I don't think that cabbage is supposed to be spicy?
The burning from the sprouts was more unpleasant that from the cabbage.

Is there something wrong with me, or is this common with these foods?

I've experienced more of a lingering, astringent after-taste rather than burning after eating them and especially when juiced.

Yes, yes, that would be the word... astringent.

If so, then I guess that seems normal.
But I did find this article: http://query.nytimes.com/gst/fullpage.html?res=9405E1DB1E38F930A25757C0A96F958260&sec=&spon=&pagewanted=all
which would suggest that there in fact is something wrong with me.
