Foods That Cause Canker Sores


Canker sores aren’t harmful, but can cause real discomfort when they develop in the mouth. Although the exact reasons why they appear are not fully understood, it is thought that stress or injuries may play a role. However, specific foods could also cause these sores to form.

It is believed that highly acidic foods (such as citrus fruits) can increase the chances of developing a canker sore. This also arises from the fact that the acid contained within these foods can delay a sore from healing, causing more pain.

Allergies may also play a role due to a vigorous immune system response in some individuals. Some foods which can lead to allergies include coffee, dairy products, chocolate, nuts, gluten, and spicy foods.

So, let’s summarise what we have learned about canker sores by highlighting a few key points:

– Canker sores are normally no cause for concern.

– Acidic foods can lead to these sores developing.

– Some evidence suggests that allergies play a role.
