Which, if any, contains acid - beets or cacao?

Today's blast included cooked beets and cacao, neither of which I've used before. One of these ingredients caused stomach acid! Which would be the most likely culprit please?

Dietitian's Answer

Beet is a basic/alkaline food. Cacao contains oxalic acid however it is not the same type of acid that you would experience when you have "stomach acid". Acid reflux is something you could have experienced and it can be caused by the caffeine from cacao, stress, or something that is unrelated to either of the ingredients.
