Most people are aware that poppy seeds could do it. Some of the other items may surprise you. Here is a list of items.
- Bread: most bread products are made with yeast. But did you know that when yeast ferments it produces alcohol. Certainly not enough for you to appear drunk, but could be enough to fail a breathalyzer test or even make it appear on the test results that you had some alcohol. This alcohol effect in your mouth does not last that long. However, imagine if you are eating while driving and then pulled over and asked to do a test. An officer could charge you with drunk driving until a blood test confirms otherwise. Sure the problem could be straightened out, but who wants to deal with that mess!
- Hemp seeds: A lot of products now include "seeds" as we move towards a healthier eating style. However, hemp seeds can contain THC, which is the psychoactive ingredient found in pot. You are not going to get high on this amount contained in hemp seeds, but if your diet includes eating these seeds regularly, the THC ingredient can build up in your body, which could make a drug test think you are smoking pot. Normally, THC can stay in your system for 45 days since it is stored in the fat cells. Therefore, if your diet included hemp seeds, you may want to delay a drug test.
- Durian fruit can actually create "mouth alcohol" in your system. Therefore, if you were stopped by the police, you may actually fail a breathalyzer test due to the lingering mouth alcohol that is present.
- Tonic water. Many people like their drinks with tonic, but this is made with a small amount of quinine that sometimes shows up in cocaine or heroin. Quinine is dissolved in the carbonated tonic. A long time ago, quinine was used to fight against malaria. While the quinine level in tonic water is less then it used to be, it can still throw off a drug test.
