Cer­tain foods cre­ate more gas in your gas­troin­testi­nal tract. They in­clude legumes (beans, chick­peas and lentils), cauliflower, broc­coli, Brus­sels sprouts, cab­bage, as­para­gus and onion. These foods are full of fi­bre, which acts as food for the good bac­te­ria in your gut, but this process causes gas and bloat­ing. Other cul­prits are foods con­tain­ing FODMAPs, which are short-chain car­bo­hy­drates (Fer­mentable Oligosac­cha­rides, Disac­cha­rides, Monosac­cha­rides and Poly­ols). But don’t let this sci­en­tific jargon scare you. FODMAPs are nat­u­ral com­po­nents of food that are poorly ab­sorbed and can trig­ger symp­toms of Ir­ri­ta­ble Bowel Syn­drome, like bloat­ing. FODMAPs are found in a range of foods, like onions and gar­lic, some fruits, veg­eta­bles and some dairy, which is why our plan rec­om­mends lac­tose-free dairy.
