    I've cut down my cream and started using more coconut milk. It gives me heartburn, ick.

    Anyone else have this experience? Why would coconut milk cause heartburn?

    Round Rock, TX Nice place, too bad it's in Texas!


    I'm no help, I've had no problem. I've had GERD from time to time, but I have to say, no occurrence since going Primal.

    Are you putting coconut milk into coffee? If so, it's probably not the coconut milk that is giving you troubles.

    Like Conan said, I think it may depend on what you're swapping coconut milk for cream in. I'm not as sure about how just plain cream breaks down chemically, but milk itself behaves like a buffer solution- when my problems with heartburn were much worse, milk was one of the few things I could eat or drink that would take the edge off a bad day.

    So it might not be that coconut milk causes heartburn as that it's not as good at buffering extremes from other sources as what you're replacing.
