The stomach produces hydrochloric acid to aid the digestion of food and kill harmful pathogens. Unusually excessive secretion of this acid results in a condition of acidity. It is manifested in intense heartburn felt below the chest, caused by the acid moving back up into the esophagus. 
The leading cause of acidity is unhealthy food habits, and this is especially the case in India where oily and spicy food is consumed often. Here are 10 foods to avoid if you want to escape that uncomfortable burning sensation:


1.    Fried Food


Fried food tops the list of foods to be avoided to prevent acidity because of its high-fat content.  It also sits in the stomach for longer, causing a feeling of fullness. A ‘full’ stomach disrupts the digestive system by producing more acid than normal.

Three to four cups of coffee at regular intervals in a day is alright, but sipping on a latte at your work desk all through the day is a sure-shot trigger for acidity.


5.    Peppermint 


Peppermints are great to impress a date with fresh breath but bad for an acidic bout in the throat. Studies have proven peppermint to be very effective for indigestion, irritable bowel syndrome, and pain in the lower gut. But when it comes to heartburn, the menthol present in peppermint may actually further relax the LES and make your acidity even more unpleasant. Mint-flavored products irritate the throat and worsen the bitter taste caused by acidity. 


6.    Meat
