Prickly pineapple

Yesterday night, while watching the german Idol, I ate a third of pineapple.

Then, I ate cookies. Smoked. Brushed. Used mouthwash.

And still my mouth felt like it has a coat of something is covering it :/

Turns out it’s because of an enzyme…”Pineapples contain a plant protease enzyme called bromelian. Because it readily breaks down protein, bromelain is frequently used as a natural meat tenderizer. Bromelain may also induce a prickly sensation in the mouth when consumed.”

There is some information out there on “bitter taste in mouth” condition, so that could be another reason.

So there we have it.
