Halocho #823 - Is your own blood Kosher?

If you bit into food - a piece of bread or fruit, for example - and some blood (from your gums or elsewhere) gets onto the food, one has to remove the bloody part before eating the rest.

However, you may swallow your own blood originating in your mouth - from bleeding gums or a cut tongue, for example - if it did not leave your mouth.
