from the foods that cause gas, there are other causes for the production of stomach gas. Flatulence or farting
is also caused by some problems related to digestive system. All the gas
producing foods do not have the same effect on everyone eating them.
Gas is the air in the digestive canal which is either produced there or gets there through swallowing while eating etc.
Everyone produces some gas while the digestive process takes place.The quantity of gas and whether it stinks or not will depend on many factors.
The most common symptoms of gas are burping/ belching, passing wind, feeling of stomach bloating, and abdominal pain or discomfort.
The gas or the released wind may smell bad too. So to see what foods cause gas in your digestive system, it is a good idea to keep track of the foods that you eat.
The partially digested or undigested foods in the large intestine ferment because of the bacteria in the colon and produce gas which causes flatulence.
Many of these foods are considered healthy foods but then you need to control their intake if they cause excess gas production in your digestive system.
Or you may need to take them in combination of ingredients that reduce gas. For example, beans consumption produces more gas but garlic and ginger taken with beans and pulses is supposed to reduce the gas production.
There are certain foods as well as food combinations that produce more gas.
Dried beans, cabbage, radish, onions, cauliflower, broccoli, Brussels sprouts, bran, some dairy products, sugary products etc. produce more gas for most of the people.
Packaged foods, bakery products, sugar filled drinks also have the gas producing effect on many people.
Among dairy products, though milk is said to produce gas, yogurt contains less lactose and therefore it is better to consume more yogurt than milk.
Foods containing carbohydrates cause gas in some people. Those who
have problem digesting carbohydrates may have problem with flatulence.
