Erica and Sunbeam,
It is so true that one person's trigger is another person's safe food. GERD trigger foods that are listed far and wide, are the foods that seem to bother the most people. "Anecdotal" information comes from real-life experiences that are recorded and compiled by researchers.
It's not scientific in the sense that it was tested on an LES to see the results. It is anecdotal research that compiles individual experiences with a variety of foods. Deciding which foods are triggers, is an individual trial and error process, but mint can create problems for some. Glad to hear you can enjoy mint treats without a problem!
