The Secret Behind The Taste of Reflux Gourmet’s Rescue…

As it turns out, kelp (the natural source of alginates in our reflux-blocking raft) does not taste very good – Chef Ken to the rescue!


All-natural mint and chocolate flavorings proved to be optimal ingredients to mask the bad taste of alginate. This was a slow process that took years to refine. Although products that have these elements as active ingredients may exacerbate reflux in people with a predisposition (mint chocolate ice cream, for example), the amount of all natural mint and chocolate extract in Mint Chocolate Rescue are not in sufficient quantities to be considered “mint” and “chocolate” by the FDA and do not promote reflux. 


While many love our original flavor, we know mint chocolate isn’t everyone’s cup of tea, so Chef Ken went back to work! To so many of us, vanilla strikes a soothing note; taking this into account, Chef Ken worked hard to hide the unpalatable taste of alginate under a scrumptious blanket of nostalgia. Vanilla Caramel Rescue tastes like vanilla wafers and the yummy caramels from the crystal dish on our grandmother’s table, and it feels like the cool hand of healing on our cheeks. Mmmm…

So, what’s the secret behind the taste of Reflux Gourmet’s Rescue? Chef Ken, of course!


The science of alginate therapy

Reflux Gourmet harnesses the natural healing ability of kelp. Alginate is an all-natural polymer harvested from brown seaweed (kelp). Alginates have been used safely in the food industry for over 100 years.

do you have "Reflux"?

“Reflux” is the common term used to describe when an individual’s stomach contents refluxes, or backs-up, into the esophagus and/or throat.

Our Story

Once upon a time, a renowned and passionate chef from the Napa Valley visited a reflux expert at one of the top medical schools in the country. The chef suffered daily with the pain and consequences of acid reflux. And the doctor, struggling to help others with this affliction, recognized an opportunity. Together, they sought a solution and created an answer. The doctor made it work, and the chef made it good.

Our team

Our team at Reflux Gourmet is composed of two physicians with over 40 years combined specialized experience caring for people suffering with reflux, and a celebrity chef who knows what it feels like to do the suffering.
