  • Pineapple
  • Vinegar
  • Grapefruit
  • Mangoes in particularly young mangoes
  • Thai mango salad
  • Tamarind

If you really want to eat the following from the list below , it is best to line your stomach with other food first and not have it as the first or last thing of your meal. for example: eat rice/ bread then eat mango then eat rice/ bread again. This will help reduce the reaction to your stomach lining. 
If you really want have these between meals:

  • Oranges
  • Eucalyptus drops
  • Asam laksa 
  • Lemon

Tips to help your gastric condition: when you eat, try to chew 30x before you swallow because it will reduce the workload of the stomach and also heal the stomach.
