Mutual destruction of Food:

1. Shrimp meat: Shrimp should not be eaten with some fruits. Shrimp is high in calcium, protein and other nutrients. Eating shrimps together with fruits containing tannic acid, such as grapes, pomegranates, hawthorn fruit and persimmon, will reduce the nutritional value of shrimp protein. Calcium and tannic acid when combined easily form an insoluble substance, which can cause upset stomach leading to nausea, dizziness, vomiting, abdominal pain, diarrhea and other symptoms. Following a seafood meal, diners should wait at least 2 hours before eating the aforementioned fruits.

2. Egg white: Egg white should not be eaten with saccharin, soy milk or rabbit meat.
