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.
- Legumes (like peas, peanuts, soybeans)
- Brussels sprouts
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.
