Does Pineapple Juice Cause Heartburn?
Greetings to Sarah from New York City, who would like to know does pineapple juice cause heartburn? The answer is yes, pineapple juice can cause heartburn, especially with individuals that already suffer from acid reflux disease. Pineapple juice, and particularly raw homemade pineapple juice contains a large amount of fruit based acid which can irritate your esophagus or stomach. The best way to prevent this from happening, is to drink pineapple juice after a meal, and not on an empty stomach. You can also neutralize the acidity level in the pineapple juice by adding a variety of dairy products to it, such as milk, condensed milk, ice cream, or even soy or coconut milk. If you do suffer from acid reflux disease however, then you should consult with a doctor before drinking any pineapple juice, as it could make your condition worse. Thanks again for the question.
