Certain foods are common causes of flatulence, and temporarily avoiding these foods can help you determine if they’re a problem for you. According to the Mayo Clinic Health Letter, the following foods are likely to cause gassiness:
Additionally, artificial sweeteners such as sorbitol, mannitol and xylitol may also cause flatulence.
- Dairy products, which contain sugar lactose that causes gas
- Vegetables, including onions, radishes, cabbage, celery, carrots, brussel sprouts, broccoli, cauliflower and legumes
- Fruit sugar, which is especially high in prunes, raisins, bananas, apples, apricots and fruit juices from prunes, grapes and apples
- Fatty foods and carbonated drinks
Food manufacturers have begun to develop products that promise to not cause flatulence. For instance, in 2006 a flatulence-free manteca bean was grown in the UK.
