What happens if you eat a bad Almond?
Keeping this in consideration, can almonds go bad and make you sick?
Almonds go bad when the oils go rancid as they oxidize. Humidity is also a contributing factor to rancidity, although most almonds go bad thanks to other factors. When you eat almonds that are spoiled, it may make you sick.
how do you know if almonds are bad? To check for rancidity in a shelled almond, slice the almond in half and look for a solid white texture throughout--if it is yellowish or has a honeycomb pattern, it is spoiled and should be discarded. There is no harm in eating rancid almonds but they will have an extremely bitter, unpleasant taste.
Beside this, what happens if you eat a rotten almond?
Spoiled almonds aren't poisonous, but the fats are no longer beneficial. It is possible that rancid fat could contribute to chronic health problems if consumed often. So when the almonds taste bad, it's time to throw them out.
What happens if you eat too many almonds?
Though they have been proven as effective in curing spasms and pain, if you consume them in excess, it can lead to toxicity in your body. This is because they contain hydrocyanic acid, an over-consumption of which can lead to breathing problem, nervous breakdown, choking and even death!
