Gas-Inducing Foods

Oats

 Oatmeal can be prepared with just water and flavored with digestive enzymes or other foods that aid digestion, such as lemon, ginger, fennel, and peppermint.

Seed

Due to their high fiber content, our bodies cannot digest them. Oschmann recommends ground chia or flax seeds to prevent bloating.

Bean

Fortunately, boiling beans properly reduces their gas-producing potential. Soaking certain items overnight before cooking helps reduce gas. 

Lentil

Like beans, soaking lentils overnight reduces gas. Canned variants are another option. Qureshi advises straining and rinsing before eating.

Sugar-free candy

Sorbitol, mannitol, and xylitol, sugar alcohols used to substitute sugar, ferment in the stomach and create gas.

Broccoli

Broccoli is healthful, so if you want to keep eating it without the odor, prepare it and consume less.

Pesky cruciferous vegetables! Cabbage also causes intestinal bubbles. Gas suffers from its fiber and raffinose. Besides cooking it.
