Does 60 mg of ascorbic acid or cocoa powder cause acid reflux? I have been told citrus and chocolate are not good.

They can - depends. Every person is different, and every stomach reacts to different foods by producing a different amount of acid (for a different period of time). Thus, while citrus and chocolate have been reported to cause worse acid reflux in some people, so have tomatoes, spicy foods, peppers, vegetables, and even antacids! The only way to know for u is to change your diet and see if the symptoms get worse.
