Help, should i be concerned?
Just maybe 30 minutes ago I had apple sauce that tasted and smelled like alcohol. Now I have a mild headache. I only swallowed the tiniest bit before I realized what the applesauce tasted like. No, this apple sauce wasnt expired, it came in a pack I bought 2 days ago and this was the only one that tasted like this. Should I be concerned or is this common?

It's not common but fruit ferments very easily from its own sugars combined with a natural yeast from the air. It suggests that some air got in during manufacture. Makes stuff taste funny, but generally not harmful at all. Usually not high enough in alcohol to actually make you drunk.

Maybe the apple sauce had started to ferment??

You only swallowed a tiny bit.
No concern. No, it is not common.
If you have a headache it is unrelated to the apple sauce. Maybe tension.
Apples CAN ferment. "Hard" apple cider was made by farmers for centuries as a substitute for distilled liquor or brewed beer. And apples sauce, with its acidic content, is not a hospitable environment for dangerous bacteria.

you are extremely paranoid.
FYI a mild headache is NOT a symptom of food poisoning.

No, it isn't common, and no, you shouldn't be concerned. I really can't imagine why you'd think that 'the tiniest bit' of applesauce, even if it was spoiled which is unlikely, would give you a headache

I would not worry too much about it. Relax.

I would contact poison control because you never know. Don’t get too worked up about it though.
