    So agree with the pips in citrus fruit and bones in fish! Also, really pithy oranges are detestable in the mouth.
    Hate the texture of mushrooms too, but love the taste.
    And spinach is lovely but it makes my teeth go all weird. I can't describe it, but if you're a spinach scoffer you'll know what I mean

    Read what you will, but I hate hair in my mouth.
  8. Oh, me too. Can't even bear to touch them. Yuck.
  9. Me too, Shifter. Seeing a hair on someone else's plate makes me retch!

    It's called oxalic acid and there's loads in spinach.

  12. Is that why my teeth and tongue go all furry if I eat lots of pineapple?

    I'm not supposed to eat stuff with a lot of oxalic acid in it.
    That's tomorrow's dinner up the dunger.

    No. That's because pineapple has a very potent protein digesting enzyme and it's actually digesting the top layer of your tongue, lining of your mouth and some of the bacterial plaque on your teeth (eugh!)
    It's also why jelly won't set if it has fresh pineapple (or kiwi) in it as the protease digests the gelatin that makes jelly set.
    People who eat loads of fresh pineapple often get loose teeth where the gums are broken down too.

    That has put me off pineapple - I often eat a whole one to myself in the summer :S

    Papaya has the same enzyme, I think.
  20. Cooked spinach on its own. I like raw spinach and I can manage when it is in something (eg spinach and ricotta) but the texture and taste makes me gag. I can't swallow it.
