I think I've identified one of the first food irritants for me - the only one so far after lactose.  If I eat a sandwich with oil and vinegar, or Italian salad dressing type stuff, I feel it relatively quickly as a burning, irritated type of pain.  I'm wondering if it's just acidic and irritates the ulcers or if it could be a clue to what I have going on?  Any ideas?

A little olive oil doesn't bother me, but vinegar or marinades-- yuck! (Absolute no-nos when flaring!) / Old Hat (30 yrs with left-sided UC; presently recovering from flare in sigmoid colon)

I should probably clarify - because I don't know the exact ingredients that give me discomfort, only their appearance - for instance Italian salad dressing - yikes - feels like its poured out over an open wound - maybe that's just it? I think I can get the same feeling now that I think about it, from citrus - like having too much OJ - maybe the citric acid? If so, I wonder if adding more 'base' in my life could help sometimes, pH wise.

I eat tons of extra virgin olive oil it's sooooooooo healthy, I actually use it as a daily moisturizer (I even use it in my hair) it heals bruises like you wouldn't believe. If you google it you'll learn all the wonderful things about it.
 
Vinegar doesn't bother me either but I don't use it much either....only with cucumbers on occassion because I mainly prefer my cucs plain.

My bum is broken....there's a big crack down the middle of it! LOL :)

The bottled salad dressings & powder mixes generally have a lot of black pepper in them. That could be what's bothering you. Black pepper & heavy citrus do not agree with me-- same for generic Colazal. / Old Hat (30 yrs with left-sided UC ... [etc.])
