    I am looking for ACIDLESS sorbets/cordials - for indigestion

    Dear Food.com,

    I am hoping that you will be able to help me please with any or all of these enquiries about sorbets and cordials.

    I enjoy both but suffer severe acid reflux so am looking for something to remove the acidity or to have acidless fruit.

    1] Do you have a tried and tested recipe for an acidless version of one or more of: orange, lime, raspberry or strawberry sorbets or cordials?

    2] Do you know of any retailers in the UK from whom I can order acidless versions of fruit such as Shamouti oranges, Mediterranean limettas, [persian limes? acidless?], champagne raspberries, which I have been told are acidless. If so, do you also have the recipes for converting them into sorbet or cordial?

    I have difficulties with soya, corn, maize, rice and oats. I can cope with white refined wheatflour but have difficulties with the fibre of vegetables, fruits and grains.

    I suffer from irritable bowel syndrome and bloating so I need something that is very easy to digest and does not have artificial sweeteners. I can only have small amounts of sugar as it ferments in my gut and makes me ill.

    Maybe I am looking for the impossible but then I thought that you might be able to help me.

    Thank you very much for your kind help,

    Best wishes

    You had a couple of nutritionist/dieticians answer this same query in the Special Diets forum, friend. Click on COMMUNITY to get to it and the rest of the more than 50 forums available for your enjoyment. icon_smile.gif

    Good luck with your health.

    I haven't any clue about the vendors in the UK, but I think that you now have Whole Foods there, and you can always inquire with them. Also, Harrod's might be a source?? Being in the US, I would have to google and still might not have any idea how far you are from where the sources would be.
    As to acidless fruit, watermelon is the best I know of, although it is high in natural sugars. It also makes a good sorbet. I think generally stone fruits may be less acid than most berries, which are typically high in vitamin C--any fruit high in C has acid. So maybe peaches or nectarines? Bananas?Sometimes people have trouble with fruit sugars (fructose in particular) and not with refined sugars in small quantities.
    As to the other digestive issues, if you've not been checked for celiac sprue, I hope you will ask for that test. It has to be done by endoscopy, not by colonoscopy, as it's the villii below the stomach that cause trouble with celiac most.
    So, not sure if I've been any help, but that's the little I can think of that might be useful for now.

    Thank you very much for your help - I had asked about celiac sprue but was told that I am all right!

    I did have an endoscopy and colonoscopy some time ago.

    I just find it difficult to eat acidic food.

    best wishes

    I'm sure if the doctor did the blood test or endoscopic biopsy for Celiac disease, you're right.

    You should ask for a referral to an allergist and a gastroenterologist or internist from your GP.

    Thank you very much for this advice. Yes I have had the tests but nothing was found but I do have various allergies including allergy to cephalosporins and penicillins and certain grasses and pollens.

    I have read that some people have "oral allergy syndrome" and wonder if this is what I have too.

    But the tests by the allergist came back inconclusive.
