'Gastroesophageal reflux disease, or GERD, is a digestive disorder that affects the lower esophageal sphincter (LES), the ring of muscle between the esophagus and stomach. Many people, including pregnant women, suffer from heartburn or acid indigestion caused by GERD

Are mashed potatoes terrible for reflux?

Are mashed potatoes terrible for reflux? After eating them I got terrible reflux.

In general potatoes are ok but it depends how you make them. If you add fats like butter, diary milk or gravy, you will experience heartburn. The best option for gerd is sweet potatoes. I always boil sweet potateos together with some simple potatoes and then I add unsweatened diary free milk to make mash potatoes so I don't get heartburn maybe it will help for you too. Avoid butter and gravy

I think it's the butter that caused this. Thank you !!!

Mohamed Hesham Abd El-Hamid Butter does me in, can't handle it at all. I eat a lot of potatoes, but I eat them plain.

Mohamed Hesham Abd El-Hamid Sarah Winchester
That's a relief, couldn't imagine cutting potatoes from my meals. Then it's the butter I have to substitute with olive oil

Greta Sav
Mohamed Hesham Abd El-Hamid olive oil is not good for gerd either because it's acidic and has a high in fat content.
Try to make potateos with a non diary milk instead.
