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.
