Our expert says:
The following foods are rich in vit C: all citrus fruits, guavas, mango, pawpaw, kiwi fruit, all berries, spanspek, all of the cabbage family, sweet peppers. You need to experiment with these foods to see which ones do not interfere with your IBS as most sufferers have individual reactions which are not determined by the acid content of the food when eaten. Fruit generally produces what is called an alkaline residue in the body, so the original acid taste does not cause acid in the body as such.
