I'm sure this has been discussed before, but I would like to know why I get an aftertaste of certain foods as much as 15 hours after eating it. Usually, I'll only "belch" such an aftertaste. It's not acidic, burning or painful but can be uncomfortable.Does this mean the food I'm tasting is still in my stomach? Was I able to digest it? Could the taste linger after the food was digested or is the food just sitting there?

The taste can also be coming from the lungs. Some of the compounds that cause the odor/taste of food can get into the blood stream and are excreted by the lungs. (Garlic breath is the notorious example of this).While some people have delayed gastric emptying I don't think that the food stays in the stomach in anyone for 15 hours.K.------------------I have no financial, academic, or any other stake in any commercial product mentioned by me.My story and what worked for me in greatly easing my IBS: http://www.ibsgroup.org/ubb/Forum17/HTML/000015.html
