Will dried lemon powder trigger acid reflux?

Asked July 14, 2016, 8:02 PM EDT

Due to acid reflux, I cannot have anything with lemon juice. If I cook with lemon powder, would it be less of a trigger? In other words, does it have the same acid content?

Good afternoon,
If lemon juice triggers acid reflux in you, I believe that cooking with dried lemon powder would as well. Dried lemon powder still contains a significant amount of vitamin C. Check with your physician to see if it would be harmful to you to try it. Everyone is a little different, and that may be the only way to know for sure.
Best of luck!
