What causes sour stomach?
Answer I was looking for the answer to this question this morning, and this is what I found on wisegeek.com : "There are a number of reasons why the level of hydrochloric acid rises and causes a stomachache of this type. Many of these underlying causes have to do with lifestyle choices. This means it is possible to alter habits and behavior and minimize the recurrence of sour stomach in many cases. One of the most common causes of this phenomenon has to do with consuming too much food within a couple of hours of retiring for the evening. Many people who choose to eat late in the evening do not allow enough time for their bodies to process the food before positioning themselves in a prone position. This makes it easier for the acid to back into the digestive tract and cause a burning sensation that makes it very difficult to rest. The obvious solution here is to eat earlier in the evening and engage in some light activity, such as walking to help stimulate the digestive process. Along with consuming too much food too late in the day, the type of food consumed can also lead to a sour stomach. Excess consumption of fatty foods can irritate the stomach and lead to a great deal of pain. While taking an antacid may help ease the discomfort, a better option is to consume less animal fats and consume more nutrient-rich options, such as green vegetables. The root cause for sour stomach in some cases has nothing to do with the type or amount of food consumed. Instead, the stomach is irritated by the consumption of substances that could be minimized or avoided altogether. Smokers increase their chances of developing a sour stomach. In addition, tobacco consumption can exacerbate any tendency to develop an ulcer. Choosing to quit smoking and avoid the use of tobacco products in general can save the individual a lot of pain and also minimize the chances of developing a peptic ulcer. Stress can also be involved in the creation of a sour stomach. The emotional state of an individual will often impact the ability of various systems in the body to perform at peak efficiency. Someone who is constantly worried or fearful often find they experience a tightness in the stomach area that leads to indigestion no matter what or when they eat. Often, counseling or engaging in activities to minimize stress levels will also lead to a decrease in problems with indigestion as well. "

Although people often feel sleepy after a meal, eating makes the stomach, gallbladder, and pancreas begin important work. Stomach acids and bile salts from the gallbladder beg…in to break down food. Glucose from foods triggers insulin to be released from the pancreas. All the activity going on creates sounds, much like the various humming and ticking sounds when we first turn on a bunch of fans. Doctors and nurses actually listen for sounds from the stomach and intestines (collectively called bowel sounds) to assess whether the digestive tract is healthy and working. While there can be hypermotility sounds, usually a noisy gut is simply the normal digestive workings and should be of no concern. In patients with high gas, the lower bowel (more than the stomach) will give a wide range of sounds. Interestingly, the stomach and bowel make a variety of sounds, from low rumblings to high-pitched "tings" like someone hitting a glass with a spoon. (MORE)

Freezing sour cream is something that can be done, but may have consequences you don't like. You can freeze it and then thaw it to use later, however, after it is thawed it do…esn't have the same texture that it had before. The whey and the curds separate and don't quite go back together like they were. However, when grocery shopping, if you bought a large container of sour cream, you want to make sure that it will not go bad before you can use it.Sour cream will keep a really long time in the refrigerator, as long as you don't open it. Commercially produced and unopened containers of sour cream will keep 45 to 60 days. Some brands even have a shelf life of 120 days. All sour cream will keep, as long as you don't open it, for two to three weeks beyond the expiration date. If your sour cream is opened, then it will only keep for one to two weeks. To keep it longer in the refrigerator, you can mix the sour cream well and then put into a container that is just big enough for the amount of sour cream you have left. Squeeze out as much air as possible and put it in the coldest part of the refrigerator. If you don't have a container that is the right size, put the sour cream into a zip lock bag and squeeze out all the air or put it into the nearest size container and then turn the container upside down in the refrigerator. Either will help extend the life of your sour cream.If you still want to freeze the sour cream, open the container and stir it to mix the moisture into it very well. Make sure you write the date and the contents on the bag with a permanent marker before putting the sour cream into it. Put the sour cream into the plastic bag. Close the bag except for a small area. Squeeze out all the air you can. Close the bag. Put the bag on its side in the freezer. You can extend the time you can use your sour cream by four to six months by freezing it, keeping you from having to by more the next time you go grocery shopping.Thaw the sour cream by putting it in a bowl and letting it thaw in the refrigerator for a few hours or up to a day. Once the sour cream is thawed you can restore some of its original texture by putting it in the blender with one to two teaspoons of cornstarch. Mix it thoroughly in the blender and then put it into a container that you can seal securely with a lid. The cornstarch will thicken the separated parts of the sour cream, but it still won't quite be the same texture as when it was new.You can try the thawed sour cream on potatoes or sandwiches, but most people don't like the taste or the texture. However, there are still ways to use the sour cream. You can add it to soups, use it in baked goods, and add it to sauces.Can you freeze sour cream? Yes you can freeze it and thaw it to use again.
