Can milk be combined with herring?

Popular wisdom says that it is better not to drink salted herring with milk: such a step can be fatal for the digestive system, and you will have an upset bowel. But is it really - or is it just an urban legend? And is it possible to combine milk and herring in one dish? The co-owner and brand chef of Delicatessen and Yunost Ivan Shishkin and the candidate of medical sciences, doctor of the highest category, senior researcher at the clinic of the Federal State Budget Scientific Institution Nutrition Research Institute Yulia Chekhonina tell.

Great question. I believe that, of course, it is possible. Moreover, the herring is very often soaked in milk before being served on the table or used in further dishes - for example, when preparing mincemeat. Therefore, of course, herring with milk is compatible, no matter how some myths may speak.

Another thing is that I do not really understand what the joke is. I do not think that herring with milk is an ideal combination of taste and consistency. I think it's just not very tasty. However, I do not see any material explanation for the fact that this may be incompatible. In conclusion, I can say that one girl ate herring, washed down with milk, jammed with oranges and she had nothing to do with it, because she had a dad.

The use of herring with milk, in general, has no particular contraindications - except when it is impossible to use herring for specific reasons: for example, if there is a need to limit foods with a high salt content in case of kidney disease or high blood pressure. And if there are no contraindications to the use of milk - lactase deficiency (a condition in which milk intolerance occurs). Poisoning will not occur, because there are no toxic substances in the herring or milk. These products, if they are of good quality, do not contain any hazardous substances. But if a person has an allergy to milk, lactose intolerance or an allergy to fish, there can be unpleasant consequences in the form of allergic reactions or in the form of an intestinal upset.

I will even say more: there are many recipes in which it is recommended to pre-soak herring either in water or in milk. It is clear that if we soak the fish in milk, then some of the milk remains in it, and if we eat this herring after such soaking, then absolutely nothing will happen to us.

It does not really matter, together we consume milk and herring or separately - it all depends on individual taste preferences. It is clear that such a combination is not the most familiar food for us, and we are not talking about the fact that it is necessary to take herring and drink it with milk. But if these two products are found in the same dish, then nothing dangerous will happen.
