Does bread absorb heartburn acid?

First off lets learn a little about heartburn.
What is Heartburn? is a painful burning sensation in the chest caused by Gastroesophageal Reflux (backflow from the stomach irritating the esophagus)
What Causes Heartburn?
When you swallow food & liquids, the lower esophageal sphincter valve in your esophagus opens/relaxes to allow food and liquids to flow down into your stomach. Then it closes again.

If this valve relaxes abnormally or weakens, stomach acid can flow back up into your esophagus, causing heartburn. The acid backup is worse when you bend over or lie down. In some cases people pile up pillows at bedtime to avoid the acid going upward so by piling pillows the acid would go downward but eventually the acid will go back up because you are now asleep and have no control where the pillow move.

Which foods cause Heartburn?
Hot & spicy foods, dairy, fatty foods, alcohol, even chocolate, & many more!

Well I have been researching about this matter and I keep getting different responses. Some say bread makes it worse and some say bread absorbs the acid which works similar like a sponge. This topic is a debating one, everyone has different answers and opinions about this. I personally think it does work but it is not for everyone. My mom always has heartburn and she eats one slice of white bread and minutes later feels better, so for her it does work. It all came down to this not every human body absorbs food the same in other words some people get heartburn from milk, while some people do not get any heartburn from milk.
Here is my analogy:
  • People exercise and eat healthy to lower cholesterol but it does not work that way for everyone. Some people might need extra help lowering cholesterol by taking cholesterol-lowering drugs with exercise and dieting.
  • People eat a slice of white bread to absorb the heartburn acid and feel better afterwards, while others might need extra help by taking Antacid drugs.
