Can I eat steamed buns with a bad stomach?


With the continuous improvement of people's living standards and the accelerated pace of life, more and more people suffer from stomach problems, which are mostly closely related to bad eating habits. The stomach is an important digestive organ of the human body, which has various functions of digesting and storing food. After the food is initially decomposed by the amylase in the saliva in the mouth, it enters the stomach through the esophagus, and then through the digestion of gastric juice, it becomes a semi-liquid chyme and supplies the intestine, and the nutrients are absorbed by the body and supplied to the human body. Therefore, whether the function of the stomach is strong or not is directly related to the amount of nutrient absorption by the human body. If you eat improperly, it is easy to damage the gastric mucosa, weaken the digestive function of the stomach, and affect the health of the body.

Therefore, when the stomach is uncomfortable, we must leave a lot of comments in terms of food selection to strengthen the maintenance of the stomach. Some people say that if you have a bad stomach, you can't eat steamed buns, otherwise it will worsen the stomach problem. Is this true?

Can't eat steamed bread with bad stomach?

Some people say that steamed bread is a starchy food, so it is difficult to be digested in the stomach, so people with stomach problems should not eat steamed bread. But for northerners who take steamed buns as their staple food and eat steamed buns for three meals a day, they are really going to starve.

In fact, this statement that you can't eat steamed buns after suffering from stomach problems is wrong and has no theoretical basis.

First: steamed bread is easy to digest

Although the main component of steamed bread is starch, it will be decomposed into glucose with relatively small molecular structure in the stomach, which is easily digested in the stomach and has a good maintenance effect on the stomach.

Second: Steamed bread treats gastric acid

The steamed buns made in the north are mostly fermented with alkali-containing yeast. People with a lot of stomach acid eat more of this steamed bun, and the alkali in it will neutralize the stomach acid and eliminate the excess stomach acid. Moreover, steamed bread contains enzymes from natural probiotic yeast, which can also promote the decomposition of nutrients, which is very suitable for people with insufficient secretion of enzymes in the stomach, resulting in weak digestion. Therefore, people with bad stomach can eat steamed bread.

Although people with bad stomach can eat steamed buns, they should be careful not to eat too much, especially dinner, otherwise it will cause gastrointestinal burden, cause stomach discomfort, and induce obesity. There are also people who are allergic to ergot or other ingredients in steamed bread, it is better not to eat steamed bread.

If you have a bad stomach, it is recommended to stay away from these foods‍

1. Spicy food

When people have gastrointestinal problems, it is best not to eat spicy food to avoid damage to the gastric mucosa. The capsaicin in these foods will stimulate the stomach and increase the burden on the stomach.

2. Raw and cold food

5. Orange juice

In the hot summer, many people like to drink freshly squeezed orange juice and lemon juice. It is recommended to buy oranges and squeeze the juice at home. Never buy them outside. Because beverages such as orange juice bought outside have saccharin, coloring and preservatives, these additives are harmful to the stomach. Moreover, orange juice is acidic, and it is fused with stomach acid, and the combination of acid and acid is very stimulating to the stomach and intestines.

6. Coffee

Coffee is the favorite of many mental workers. It has a refreshing effect when they are sleepy. Many young people like to enjoy a cup of coffee at breakfast time, and they feel very comfortable.
