Why orange / pineapple smoothie turns bitter after 8 hours?

Answered on August 19, 2014
Created March 05, 2013 at 1:07 AM

On my way to work this morning, I made a smoothie with organic raw milk, organic grass fed heavy cream, organic cooked carrots, and dole pineapple.

I tasted it when I made it at 8am and it was fine.

I had some at 4pm and it was somewhat bitter.

I had the rest at 8pm and it was very bitter.

Since the ingredients were pretty expensive, and I was hungry, I added 3 heaping teaspoons of GMO corn Dextrose into to, and drank it.

I'm pretty sure it was the pineapple that turned bitter. I've had the same experience oranges.

Is it spoiled?

Is it safe?

Are the smoothie gods angry at me because I shouldn't be drinking my calories?

Any thoughts would be very much appreciated.

Thanks, Mike

I'm trying to limit fructose, and that's all glucose. Yes, I wish it wasn't GMO

Amazing! Thank you! I didn't notice any curdling but it certainly sounds like these 2 ingredients don't play well together. Any idea on the oranges? I read that oj in cartons requires preservatives which I am obviously not using.

I think it's the pineapple + cream combo. From http://www.professorshouse.com/Food-Beverage/Topics/Fruit/Articles/Pineapples/: "Fresh pineapple contains bromelain, an enzyme which will prevent gelatin from setting and will cause dairy products to curdle. (You can use fresh pineapple with dairy if you do not combine them until immediately prior to serving.)"

I made pineapple fluff and same things happened. The recipe was awesome for almost 8 hours but started turning a little bitter then. I still don't mind eating that little flavor of bitter. but The question is, is it safe to eat that? I did not find any answers to this question. Though I actually ate some of it (Oh my greed !!) and till now no side-effects ;) Fingers crossed !

yes i agree i used to take greek yogurt and pineapple to work with me which usually tastes delish ..but the combo doesnt travel well and go bitter for sure.. so it must be the dairy and pineapple combo. I second wut Renee said..prolly the bromelain which is also used to tenderize meat so its a potent enzyme. Try making the same smoothie minus the pineapple. Sounds like a pretty yummy smoothie though .. the smoothie Gods are smiling ..and saying Drink it right away or omit the P.A! :)
