Our expert says:
If the patient who is suffering from the stomach ulcers is receiving medical treatment (proton pump inhibitors and/or antacids) AND if eating meat prepared with BBQ spice or any other type of spice does not cause a flare-up of symptoms, then he or she can probalby tolerate such foods. The way in which ulcer patients react to foods and beverages that are known to trigger excess acid production (spicy foods, curry, condiments, tee, coffee, carbonated cold drinks, alcohol, very rich foods with a high fat content, etc), is often an individual reaction with one patient suffering pain and heartburn after eating spices, while the next patient may not react. The patient should try keeping a food diary to note down which foods cause discomfort so that they can be avoided until the ulcer has healed.
