I read years ago that burping and indigestion can be caused by insufficient stomach acid. I had always suffered with chronic burping after eating ANYthing! It was very embarrassing. The article suggested eating a small amount of fresh pineapple before eating, preferably 15-20 minutes before meals because FRESH pineapple has the enzyme bromelain which breaks down food for you. It works beautifully! I keep a fresh pineapple cut in the refrig and eat 1 or 2 small pieces before meals. I never burp anymore unless I am away from fresh pineapple.
