Acidic ingredients such as lemon or lime juice, vinegar, wine, tomatoes, and even pineapple will all help to neutralize the pH levels of a spicy oil, and reduce some of that flaming-hot flavor.

Milk could be a solution when eating spicy foods. Literally. That's because milk helps your mouth handle capsaicin, an oily chemical compound in chili peppers.
