does peanut butter and jelly give you heartburn?

Not usually.: Peter butter and jelly sandwiches usually do not cause a significant amount of heartburn, although peanut butter does contain a lot of fat, which bothers some people. However, everyone is different, so if you notice that PB&J's cause heartburn problems for you, you may need to avoid them. Good luck.

Yes: Both are high in unhealthy sugars and other anti-nutrients. Read this short article on relieving heartburn: https://www.kaushikmd.com/heartburn-do-you-know-this/
