the baking soda test
We learnt from Eve Kalinik that despite people thinking the opposite, having low stomach acid AIN’T GOOD and your stomach actually needs to be highly acidic in order to breakdown food.
The test isn’t ‘scientific’ by any means but it can give you some indication of whether the production of hydrochloric acid in the stomach is on the low side. If you are taking any kind of antacids or reflux medications, are pregnant or had a few too many tipples the night before, then this will affect the results.
