You may find that you can’t eat some foods that other heartburn sufferers can, and that you have no acid reflux symptoms when eating some foods that are major heartburn triggers for others. The foods and beverages that are known heartburn triggers for the majority of sufferers, and those you should be aware of, are the following:
