My husband's an A and gets a sore throat if he eats raw pineapple. Any ideas?  If I cook it a bit, it's fine.

Cooking must destroys some of the enzymes...Even canned you get little or no bromelain   ??) Maybe he'd be better off with no pineapple; is there something else he can eat to get the same food benefits :-/

I thought that perhaps it was an alergic reaction.  I just feel sad for him as he loves all the fruits here and now only had pineapple.  I'll go back to his A list and see what I can find to make him smile.  Thanks.

juicing might not be as harsh to his throat

Dr. D'Adamo refers to possible mouth sores coming from pineapple, so it may just be a particular sensitivity to this action of the fruit.

try leaving it for a month and then try again with a small amount. be aware that pineapple is high in amines and v high in salicylates

assuming he is a non secretor try the grapefruit first thing and blueberries at other times, actually there fine for secreter also. satrt with small amounts.

grapefruit low in amines v high salicylates good tester

blueberries low amines v high salicylates.

if he has a problem with them try paw paw / papaya thats moderate to low in both.

does he get itchy or pimply skin when eating pineapple, could be anywhere but i have come across cheek, back of neck hip and stomach in the last few weeks.

another thing.. maybe you served it just under ripe... that will do it.. let it soften and see.. but PC is right wait a month or even two..

Maybe he just ate too much of it at once.  Try just a couple of pieces and make sure it's ripe.

From what I understand is that pineapple has a high acid level and eating a lot of it will make the mouth raw.

But I'm sure that is not the case.

Perhaps if he drinks some aloe or some walnuts, something to neutralize the acid.

Thank you all for your replies!  We'll do some more investigation and he's either going to set pineapple aside or just have small bites now and then.  Now, that I'm suggesting the options, he's indicated that it's "not that bad" ....  Hmmmm

Papayas are an avoid for A's according to the online list.  

Blueberries just arrived in the mail ($20 including shipping for 6oz freeze dried - ergh!  I think they're trying to grow them on the Big Island but we can't grow them here)  

He CAN have guava and those are growing everywhere,. but they're not a Beneficial.

We're both doing well with our new eating practices and I can't believe how peaceful he's been about the loss of bananas, mangos, etc.  He's feeling great!

Raw pineapple makes my lips and mouth burn!  But I can eat it by juicing and diluting with water.

your quite right about avoid for a's sorry about that. i had them listed as paw paws, which were not on the foodlist, so i assumed neutral for all. then thought paw paw was papaya

I ate Paw Paws all through my childhood.  They grew in the Appalachian Mountains behind my house.  They were not Papayas! ;)

I have that same problem. I ate some fresh this morning and I have sort of a burning rash around my lips but no problem elsewhere. Drinking the juice is no problem for me. Maybe there is something in the skin. hmmm
I can eat the canned ones no problem.

Pineapple can make my mouth burn, but when I ate it fresh in Hawaii, it didn't do that.  So I figured it was fungus (check the bottoms when buying, it should be ripe enough to pull out a middle leaf off the top, but no fuzzy mold on the bottom).  I get the same thing from bananas and walnuts, if they aren't fresh enough.  

I also notice it's worse in pineapple that was cut a few hours or more prior to eating, fresh cut doesn't bother me so much.  If I cut it and store it in the fridge, or buy it pre-cut, it will make my mouth burn.

More great feed back, thank you.  I'll keep an eye out for freshness!  THEN I was compelled to find out about Paw Paws.  Ozark Banana!  Now I want to know how cherimoyas are rated because he LOVEs those. :)

ummmm!  Paw Paws!!  

My grandmother spread them on newspapers on the floor until they were well ripened and the skin was nearly black.  The insides would then be fragrant, sweet and custardy . . . like a cross between a mango in texture and a banana in flavor.
