HERE ARE SEVEN FOODS (AND DRINKS) THAT CAUSE ACID REFLUX:
Don’t kill the messenger, chocolate lovers: this delicious treat may cause more reflux than any other food. Here’s why:
1 – Common ingredients in chocolate, including stimulants caffeine and theobromine may induce reflex.
2 – Chocolate is high in fat.
3 – Chocolate contains cocoa, a bean known to produce a reflux response.
Dark chocolate doesn’t quite produce the same amount of reflux episodes, but the difference is marginal.
