    Roasted red pepper sauce sounds promising... any brands in particular that seem to be okay?

    I miss ketchup...

    Apple cider vinegar is acid

    Apple cider vinegar, otherwise known simply as cider vinegar or ACV, is made from cider or apple must and has a brownish-yellow color. It often is sold unfiltered and unpasteurized with the mother of vinegar present, as a natural product. Because of its acidity, apple cider vinegar may be very harsh, even burning, to the throat.

    I am ok with a little mayo or ranch dip. But I usually use (block) cream cheese (great on a turkey sandwich), or Smart Balance spread. If you are ok with butter, softened butter tastes good too.

    You can also make your own "mayo" with eggs, egg yolks, cannola or olive oil and just a touch of apple cider vinegar (if you can tolerate it). It ain't Hellman's, but it doesn't hurt either. Jill, wife of Bob

    I like your idea for acid-free hummus Kadi. I used to eat hummus all of the time, but then phased in out when starting the IC diet . . . time to bring it back!

    My go-to ketchup substitute is roasted red pepper sauce.

    If my bladder is feeling particularly well, I will sometimes use one part honey mustard with one part (or more) honey mixed together. Makes a good spread or a dip for chicken fingers. I've also made up a quick honey-garlic dip by putting in a good dose of powdered garlic into honey (but do not use a dark honey like buckwheat -- yuck!).

    For sandwiches, sliced or mashed avocado works well. Of course, cheese is a must if you can have it (I eat goat's cheese).

    I like fromage blanc a lot (it's a coarser cream cheese, available in gourmet cheese shops).
    Or I use Philadelphia Light Cream Cheese (I only buy the block form, not the tub which has acidic preservatives).
    You can also make hummus without the lemon juice and use that as a spread (I put Safeway Organics canned garbanzo beans, olive oil, oregano & garlic into the food processor) and puree.

    Acceptable Condiments?

    Hi all,

    I'm just curious if anyone has any suggestions for bladder friendly condiments. I've always been a big fan of ketchup and mayonnaise, and giving them up has made my sandwiches and various other meals sort of boring.

    Any suggestions for substitutes, or just other acceptable condiments? I swear, I must be going through a pint of olive oil a day right now...

    Thanks.
Working...
