The safe amount of consumption of tangerines can be different, depending on the individual characteristics of the organism. She spoke about this in an interview with RT allergist Elena Zinnatova.

“In fact, tangerines are a pseudo-allergic product. They can cause a reaction in the body even without the participation of the immune system,” said the doctor.

According to her, the reactions in this case occur due to the action of a substance called histamine. It can be initially a lot in the product itself, or it stimulates its release from the cells.

During the New Year holidays, Zinnatova recommends eating as many tangerines as your body can tolerate well. In case of a reaction to the product, you should consult a doctor.
