A small citrus fruit like a mandarin, without its peel, shouldn’t cause a problem. Larger servings are likely to cause stomach upset. Keep in mind that mandarins are high in sugar. This is all the more reason to share them sparingly. And make sure to reevaluate if you notice any negative reactions.
