Gas and Bloating

Some foods are gas-producing. Eating too much may cause increased gaseousness. This is especially true since irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) can be associated with the retention of gas and bloating.

Examples include…

  • Beans
  • Cabbage
  • Legumes (like peas, peanuts, soybeans)
  • Cauliflower
  • Broccoli
  • Lentils
  • Brussels sprouts
  • Raisins
  • Onions
  • Bagels

If you find that fiber is gas producing or seems to be a problem that causes you to feel bloating or pain, it is usually insoluble fiber (mainly found in cereals or whole grains) that is the problem.
