2. People with sorbitol intolerance

Sorbitol is a naturally occurring sweetener that is extracted from glucose. What this compound is bad for is that, consuming too much food containing it like watermelons can cause bloating, diarrhoea or loose stools. This occurs mostly in people who have sorbitol intolerance.

As with most fruits, watermelon also comes with allergy symptoms especially for people with sensitive skin. Just like any other fruits, watch out for signs like rash, swelling, itching and others.
