Hi all, hope you're all keeping well.

I read recently that pineapple is very good for digestion, as it contains enzymes that aid it, so I have been drinking pineapple juice and eating pineapple a lot. However, I then read that for GERD, pineapple should be avoided due to the citric acid content.

What are your thoughts on pineapple?

I ate it during my surgery recovery and it didn't hurt me.

Pineapple is a fantastic thing to eat for GERD sufferers because it's very akaline in the stomach and you are right it has digestive enzymes in it that help the stomach do it's job. Another good one is papaya.
