Farts can be incredibly embarrassing and most are a combination of two things: the air you swallow, by eating too quickly and the food you eat. Farting is completely normal and healthy.
However, it can be extremely inconvenient, and some foods may trigger you more than others. The reason for this is that different bacteria exists in the intestines of different people and they are typically responsible for the gas you produce.
The following foods may increase your farts but we included a list of what you can do about it.
Broccoli And Cauliflower
Broccoli and cauliflower are particularly high in fiber, which unlike most other components of food, reaches the large intestine intact. Bacteria have the capacity to utilize fiber for energy, but the byproduct of their metabolism is gas.
Oats And Bread
Whole grains make you gassy simply because they are high in fiber too. Fibers are however good for your weight, digestion and heart, so you had best don’t skip taking them.
Instead, increase your intake slowly by eating an additional serving of a high-fiber food per day until your stomach gets more comfortable with it. Drinking enough water during this process will help ease the gas.
Dairy contains a type of sugar called lactose, but many people have trouble digesting it because they have insufficient amounts of an enzyme called lactase, which can cause bloating, gas, or even constipation.
In fact, about 65 percent of people have trouble digesting dairy as they grow older. Some people are however sensitive to it, so you can try drinking reduced-lactose milk or taking lactase supplements.
Apples And Bananas
If your stomach feels a bit rumbly after your daily apple, it could come down to the fiber. Fruit is also high in natural sugar, like fructose. Some people experience gas and bloating from fruit because their Gastrointestinal system doesn’t break down all the sugars in fruit properly.
The biggest offenders include apples, peaches, raisins, bananas, apricots, prune juice, and pears.
According to a study published in the Nutritional Journal, most legumes — including lentils, nuts, and peas — are high in fiber, along with sugars your body can’t digest properly, like raffinose and stachyose.
Bacteria in your intestines break down these sugars, resulting in all sorts of gas, like hydrogen, methane, and even sulphur.
