I totally stopped eating any foods from the Solanaceae plant family and I feel better for avoiding these irritating foods with citric acid known to be causes of discomfort and here is one of the reasons why this is so.
First, I gave up ketchup due to sweeteners and corn products, then tomatoes sauces with added preservatives citric acid being one of them; then I gave up tomatoes whole fresh or cooked from the irritation and inflammation with discomfort from my eating them. I took each one of these foods tomato, egg plant, bell pepper of red-yellow-and green, and the classic potato, too. None of these foods are in my diet today. The change took testing with rotation and elimination diet strategies in a gradual decline of ways to prepare each type and menus to change.
I avoid the obvious citrus fruit but I still can enjoy the various citrus flavor and natural scents via essential oil flavorings of organic edible quality. The fruit flesh holds the citric acid; the oil is separated from this potential harmful experience.
