Top 10 Foods That Make You Fart
Beans is the number one culprit when it comes to food that cause farting. Beans will nearly always make you fart because it contains oligosaccharides like raffinose and stachyose, that are not easily absorbed in the small intestine. However, when they reach the large intestine, they are greeted by more than 700 species of bacteria that break them into smaller pieces. They release hydrogen and methane while doing this and these gases becomes fart. Hope you now understand why you always gas when you consume beans? let’s move on.
All dairy products are sure to cause you a measure of flatulence, this is because it contains lactose. It is more common among people who are lactose intolerant. Because they don’t have enough lactase (which is the enzyme that digests lactose), the lactose could pass to your large intestine undigested. It is then acted upon by those bacteria that release gas.
Meat, especially red meat will make you gassy. Protein rich foods like meat take time to get digested, which leads to build up of sugars and bacteria, that causes gas release. There so many healthiest meats you can eat.
Fruits can also cause you to fart, these are fruits that contain sorbitiol. Sortibol was one the sugars or oligosaccharides I mentioned earlier, that causes gas release by bacteria. Some of these fruits are peaches, apples and pears.
Vegetables can cause you to fart, because of its high fiber content. However, some vegetables take longer time to digest, leading to gas release. These vegetables are asparagus, broccoli, Brussels sprouts, cabbage, carrots, celery, cucumbers, collard greens, horseradish, kale, kohlrabi etc. Broccoli is also high in sulfide, can will give your fart a very bad odor.
Drinking carbonated drinks will cause a build up of air in your body and lead to bloating and farting. Avoid fizzy drinks if you don’t want too much gas in your body.
Oat bran, corn bran and wheat bran are all healthy diets that are good for you. But could lead to excessive farting and flatulence, due to their high fiber content.
Eggs (especially boiled eggs) are surely going to make you gassy because it is high in protein. It will also likely have a terrible odor. This case will be worse with people who have egg intolerance. This is similar to lactose intolerance. The enzyme lipase and the proteases will not be enough, which will leave the eggs undigested in your gut and lead to gas release and flatulence.
Sweeteners can also cause gas and bloating. Especially does that contain sorbitol and mannitol, which cannot be digested quickly. These artificial sweeteners also cause other digestive diseases too, like irritable bowel syndrome.
High fructose corn syrup (HFCS), contains fructose which leads to gas release, bloating and other gastrointestinal problems.
Corn syrups with high fructose also contains sweeteners, that can also make you fart.
