Webinar on “Incompatible foods in Ayurveda”

Saturday, 7th November 3PM - 5PM

Webinar Description

A delicious and palatable dish is a combination of various ingredients blended together with specific cooking techniques. In this infinite space of permutations and combinations, Ayurveda posits that not all combinations are advisable. This concept of “Viruddha ahara” or incompatible food combinations or food:food interactions are such combinations of ingredients that are not advisable, are detailed as 18 principles in the shastras. In this webinar, we will discuss the 18 types, explore if they have logical reasoning and present it in the context of modern diets. We will address questions like:

“Is there a simplistic understanding of why honey and ghee in equal quantities is considered poisonous?”
“Why is food that is perfectly cooked better than undercooked or overcooked food?”
