I have realised that fish bones are a good source of calcium.
I know that it is not a good idea to frequently eat long fish bones as these may get stuck in the digestive system and cause complications. I believe an alternative would be to fry or pressure cook the bones and crunch them down and it would be ok to eat like this daily, however I don't want to use this method.
Instead if I simply cut raw fish bones into smaller sizes and eat them raw would this be a problem? Also if I boil fish bones in water for 5 minutes, cut them with scissors and swallow them with food, would this be digestible and safe to do daily?
My concerns are:
- as the bones are raw or cooked with water the bones will not be soft and hence indigestable?
- even though the bones may have been cut small they may still have hard sharp edges, could these edges not cause complications in the digestive system e.g. slice/pinch tissue therefore making this method of eating unsafe for a daily habit?
Basically I want to know if it is safe(for digestive system) to eat raw/poached fish bones frequently?
from other answers it seems it's ok but please confirm, also i dont see any answer addressing my main concern which is the sharp edges even after cutting bones.
