The 10 Best Foods and Drinks to Relieve Acid Reflux 

Highly acidic fruits like oranges, grapefruit, and berries are known to cause reflux. Foroutan recommends milder fruits like bananas to keep things moving. 

1. Bananas

Due to their fibre content, Foroutan recommends bland whole grains like muesli. Since its thick, gelatinous texture closes the esophageal sphincter, muesli may be especially effective. 

2. Oatmeal

This cool, creamy treat fights stomach acidity. Low-fat dairy's lower pH neutralises stomach acids and coats the oesophagus and stomach to relieve discomfort. 

3. Low-fat greek yogurt

This is one of a million reasons to eat greens daily: Mucilage, a slimy substance on cooked vegetables like zucchini and okra, soothes stomach pain. 

4. Zucchini

Toast is good for upset stomachs. When eaten, starchy bread absorbs stomach acid and provides relief. Thus, it is famously part of the BRAT diet, which doctors recommend for stomach virus recovery. 

5. Whole wheat bread

Honey can help relieve acid reflux symptoms by coating your throat. Manuka honey, rich in antioxidants and anti-inflammatories, is best used to soothe throat soreness caused by excess acid. 

6. Honey

Once, experts recommended lighter iceberg over darker spinach or kale, which are more nutritious. Iceberg and romaine lettuce are high in water, which can dilute and neutralise stomach acids. 

7. Lettuce

Brown rice is a healthy starch and whole grain, like oatmeal. It may help "soak up" some stomach acid, which can help with acid reflux. 

8. Brown Rice

If you eat ginger for stomachaches, you may not know it relieves acid reflux. Relax with hot water-steeped fresh ginger tea or unsweetened ginger candies. You may feel better. 

9. Ginger

Fried, high-fat foods are hard to digest and cause reflux. The unsaturated fats in creamy avocado can prevent heartburn and maintain healthy acid levels.
