🍌Low Pesticide Levels – Banana’s are not very “dirty” in the sense that conventional tree’s don’t require much pesticides.
🍌Banana (“Kadali”) + 🐄Dairy = ❌Incompatible Food Combination❌ (Viruddha Ahara)
Banana mixed with dairy is highly incompatible. The post-digestive action (vipaka) of Banana is sour, while the vipaka of milk is sweet. The different vipakas create an incompatible food composition that typically deposits as “Ama” (undigested food material = toxins) in the body and will manifest as disease later. It changes the intestinal flora and diminishes Agni (digestive fire). Banana mixed with dairy is a common cause of skin diseases.
