Many foods are classified as mucogenic – AKA foods that increase your body’s mucus production. For those suffering with asthma, airway inflammation, or COPD, these foods can exacerbate breathing issues and contribute to shortness of breath and difficulty breathing. Some of the most common mucus forming foods are gluten containing grains. Other foods that can trigger excess mucus production include:

Dairy – to include milk, butter, cheese, and yogurt
Eggs
Bananas
Potatoes
Processed Soy Products
Processed Sugar
Alcoholic Beverages

For some, gluten is an irritant. It triggers the immune system and can create body wide inflammation. And even if your body doesn’t react to gluten, it may react to other wheat proteins or contaminants and chemicals in grains and processed foods.

So if you suffer from asthma, don’t rule your diet out as a contributing factor. Because prescription medications aren’t a safe and effective long-term solution. On the other hand, what harm can come from ditching grains and eating more nutrient-dense whole foods? None!
