Does eating fruit after meals cause bloating as the non acidic fruit ferments on top of your meal?

In brief: No.

Fruit, like all food, gets broken down by digestive enzymes, and the nutrients are absorbed.
Some of the sugars such as sorbitol and fructose are not well digested by humans, and some soluble fruit fibers also. These work as natural laxatives and are good for us. Excess of anything is not good, and too much fruit or fruit fiber could cause gas. Eat fruit in moderation and enjoy!
