Does eating grapefruit make your tongue sore?

Posted by ladybug

I notice after eating them for several weeks, my tongue is sore, and that is the only thing I can contribute it to. Please help, I'm really enjoying the fruit.

Grapefruit is great for you, however if you are allergic to it, it is not.  Your body may be a little senstive to them OR just to the Citric Acid which they are high in.  Try not eating them for a while (3 weeks) and then reintroduce them very slowly (every 3 days) and see if you get the same reaction.
