Different Types Of Foods That Cause Heartburn

Author : Joseph Lester

Frequent sufferers of heartburn wish that they had skipped that big meal, chili dog or spicy food when they experience an attack. Heartburn occurs when the acid in the stomach goes up into the esophagus causing pain and burning behind the breastbone. Some attacks can be severe and painful often mimicking a heart attack. Though some people are at higher risk for heartburn most can help themselves by avoiding foods that cause heartburn.

Many people experience some form of heartburn at least once a month. Others experience it more often. This has lead to the pharmaceuticals cashing in on the people who complain of heartburn. It is said that nearly 30% of the population has severe enough heartburn to require some type of remedy whether prescription or natural. That number could be greatly reduced if certain foods that cause heartburn were not consumed.

Foods To Avoid

One of the leading foods that cause heartburn is surprisingly in the fruit group. Citrus fruit is particularly a culprit. Most people would assume that would be lemons, oranges, and grapefruits and the juices and products made for them. This is true though people are surprised that tomatoes are a food that can cause heartburn. Tomatoes are not a vegetable but a fruit. Cooked in many dishes from pasta to pizza, tomatoes greatly add to heartburn sufferer's distress.

Another type of food that causes heartburn is in the dairy product arena. For some they think a nice glass of milk will sooth all things. That was a general balm in the past for everything from sleeplessness to and upset stomach. Today the dairy group has been shown to be a food that causes heartburn. That means thinking again about that milkshake, or dollop of ice cream.

You may be surprised to find that soda pop is a another food that can cause heartburn. Various beverages that contribute to heartburn are coffee and tea, alcohol and of course the citrus drinks such as tomato, orange or grapefruit juice.

It may start to seem that most foods can cause heartburn when you consider that many sweets high in fats such as cakes, cookies and brownies can contribute to acidic conditions in the esophagus. Other foods that can causes heartburn are ground chuck, buffalo wings, spicy foods, spaghetti, onions, garlic and many others.
