Hey guys.  Got another food question for ya!!
So last night, I had barbecue.  My mom makes a reaaallly good sauce out of KC Masterpiece barbecue sauce mixed with vinegar.  Well, I ate it, and naturally I soaked my bbq with it, because it tastes awesome! And I didnt think it would give me problems.  Then, after I ate, I immediatly had diarrhea and bad nausea.  It kinda went away after a while, and then the next day (a.k.a today) I felt kinda nauseated all day, and then roughly 24 hours after eating it (about 4:30 this afternoon) I had D, and it smelled lightly of vinegar and was greeny-yellow. (which usually means I can't digest something because thats what happens when I drink milk or eat preservatives or sorbitol) So does vinegar give anyone else trouble? Or do you think it was the preservatives in the bbq sauce? Or does that sound like a intestinal bug or something? (i only had 2 twice in a 24+ timespan.) Im so foods keep popping up that are making me sick!!! Blah!!

Hey Blondie, could be the vinegar is the's extremely acidic and that can bust up your guts.  You might want to try vinegar in a smaller dose (like on a salad) to see if that produces the same result, if you want to experiment.  Sorry you had a miserable time with it, but it does sound like at least enjoyed the barbeque!

I agree with Sarita. Vinegar is extremely acidic. If you can tolerate it though, it is known to be good for your health. Interestingly, I don't have any problems with vinegar but it could be that I was eating it regularly as a small child. Vinegar is a staple in italian homes (balsamic and cider types) so I may be immune to its bad GI affects and I still eat lots of it to this day. I guess its just another reason how every food effects everyone differently and why a food diary is so important.
