If you are reading this page it is likely you suffer with acid reflux or acid reflux disease. But for those who are not sure an explanation is provided below.

What Is Acid Reflux?

Acid reflux disease is often called heartburn or acid indigestion and is more often than not caused by the foods we eat. Scientifically it is known as GERD, reflux esophagitis and symptomatic hiatal hernia.


It happens when you have too much acid in your stomach that splashes back up your esophagus and causes a sharp or burning pain.It can leave a sour taste in your mouth. There are many foods that are acidic in nature that can leave too much acid in your stomach

If you suffer with acid reflux then you should consider eliminating certain acidic food from your diet and eating foods from the list below.


The acid reflux diet foods list below gives you a good idea of the types of food you can eat on an acid reflux diet.

Of course, if you have certain foods that are in this list that for some reason cause heartburn, gas, or indigestion for you then don’t eat them.

These foods are mostly considered safe to eat unless you have very severe acid reflux disease. If that is the case you may have to follow a diet with more acid reflux diet restrictions.

Any diet for acid reflux is one that follows an alkaline diet.

It is just as important, if not more so, to know which foods you should not eat. Here is the list of acid reflux foods to avoid.
