What do you calll food that gives you a sore throat if you eat a lot? I'm not sure it makes sense to natives. For example, if you have a lot of peanuts or peanut butter, the next day you'll probably feel your throat is dry and sore.

I hope it makes sense.
Thanks.

Probably food that you're allergic to?
No. It's not an alergic reaction. It happens if you consume too much dry food like peanuts. Have you had a lot of peanuts and as a result, your voice is hoarse the next day?

I would say:

That - whatever the food is - doesn't agree with me.

Onions don't agree with my stomach = eating onions results in an upset stomach (for me).

Cheese doesn't agree with me, I get headaches after eating it.

Peanuts don't agree with me. I always get a sore throat after eating them.
Thanks, Optilang. By the way, do you experience what I experience? Maybe it's a mild allergy. Is allergy hereditary?
(Singapore/Malaysian English) Heaty food is food that the Chinese believe can cause an inflamed condition, or make one worse, and should not be taken if you have a cough or sore throat, eg durian, chocolate, spicy food, or fried food. (Times-Chambers Essential Dictionary)

I don't think there is an English word for 'heaty'. The reason, I believe, is that doctors believe a cough or sore throat is caused by germs/viruses, and not by what we eat.
