Our expert says:
I have not previously heard that guavas specifically cause constipation, but I do know that the fruits of the prickly pear (which also has so many pips) can cause severe constipation. So it is possible that guavas eaten with their pips can have a similar effect. Raw guavas contain 211 kJ per 100g.
