Heartburn from Tuna ?
- 7 Sep 2011 by sharipdx
For about the last 10-12 years, every time
I eat a tuna fish sandwich I get ridiculous
I know from experience that it’s not the bread
or mayo causing this, so there must be some
unlisted process or additive in the Tuna.
We always buy Dolphin safe, solid pack white
albacore in water.
The label states -
“Ingredients: White tuna, water, salt,
phosphate added. Superior Quality Tuna
packed in Water”.
I have read and heard of many people
complaining about this Tuna heartburn
syndrome, but have never read any ideas
on what may cause it.
Any ideas out there?

I had never heard of such a thing so it got my curiosity going. For some reason the phosphate additive stuck with me so I went offsite to peruse different things and here is what I found, verbatim: Phosphate salts can irritate the digestive tract and cause stomach upset, diarrhea, constipation, and other problems. I sincerely hope this helps. I was guessing when I thought that possibly the mercury from the fish doesn't mix well with the added phosphate, but came up empty handed on that. Hope this helps and happy tummy days.
