Acid reflux happens when stomach acid moves back up to your esophagus. Sometimes it doesn't completely close after you eat or drink, allowing acid from your stomach to move up into your esophagus. This irritates your esophagus, which may cause you to cough.
Furthermore, why do I have to clear my throat after I eat? Most people who complain of chronic throat clearing have a disorder called laryngopharyngeal reflux (LPR). It's caused when matter from the stomach — both acidic and nonacidic — travels up to the throat region, causing an uncomfortable sensation that makes you clear your throat. Avoid spicy, fatty, and acidic foods.
Also question is, can certain foods cause coughing?
