Why Do Bananas Give Me Heartburn?

Answer

Many times bananas can cure a case of heartburn. In some people, bananas can actually cause heartburn. Usually bananas will create some mucus in the stomach preventing heartburn. If a banana is eaten that is not quite ripe and has some green, these bananas tend to be high in acid. An unripe banana is also harder to digest because the starches in the banana hasn't turned to sugar yet. If it is ripe and you still get heartburn, it could be a sign that you are allergic to them.
