I have GERD and IBS and my Doctor told me to stay off of Chocolate, but not what kind. From everyone I've talked to, they all say it is only Dark Chocolate. Is White Chocolate safe?

White chocolate doesn't have the compounds in it that 'loosen' the lower esophageal sphincter, but it does have a higher fat content than regular chocolate, so it might be just as bad for your GERD and IBS as regular chocolate is - depending upon your body and your symptoms.
