Catlady, I too am sorry you are not able to digest pineapple properly, Have you tried eating a bread of some kind first? I have had some friends who always suggested eating bread first in their meals. Might have something to do with the amount of acid already at a high level in IBS sufferers. I myself have had a few times my body has overproduced the acid, but it usually is followed by some sort of IBS attack. I hope you are able to solve this struggle soon-pineapple is really good for you, but I can understand shying away from it! emoticon

hi so sorry you had that experience, i have simmilar problems with pineapple and other more citrussy/acidy fruits one thing i do notice, i can do juices from those alot easier then the fruit itself, so can have a spoonfull of pineapple juice in something for flavor, but the pinapple itself is too high in insoluble fiber and acids, and pulp and it kills me

I had a smoothie with that had a bit of pineapple in it. A hour later, I felt like I swallowed battery acid. I have not had any in a few years, but I thought since it was mixed with yogurt I could handle it. That was a mistake. I have had luck mixing berries with yogurt and been able to drink those. I had to take Zantac, Pepto and Gravol.

Food is definitely on the no eat list now. I thought I had figured it out by now.

For some reason though I can eat that source 0% yogurt with the pineapple and banana. It might just be flavoring and not the real thing.
