When the pistachio ripens, the pistachio kernel grows inside the outer membrane until the shell splits open to reveal the kernel inside. This delicious nut has many benefits and is very popular because of its good taste and benefits. But the issue we are going to speak about in this article is what happens if we eat a rotten pistachio? Or in other words, what is the effect of eating rotten pistachios on the body?
What happens if you eat spoiled pistachios?
We all know that anything can spoil, even pistachios. Spoiled pistachios aren’t completely unsafe to eat (if consumed in small amounts, of course), but who wants to intentionally experience that unpleasant aftertaste?
Most nuts contain some type of fat that reacts when exposed to heat, light, and air. This breaks the bonds in the molecules and the remaining fatty acids cause the nuts to become loose.
If you eat spoiled pistachios, you will most likely not have any side effects other than an unpleasant taste in your mouth. But in some cases, this can lead to irritation of the stomach and intestinal membranes, causing stomach upset. You may also experience nausea, vomiting, or even diarrhea. In some very rare cases, eating such nuts may cause worse symptoms to appear immediately. If your symptoms are severe, you should see a doctor immediately.
