The gassiest foods


– Legumes: dried beans, lentils, peas, soybeans.

    – Vegetables: cabbage, broccoli, cauliflower, kohlrabi, brussels sprouts, green pepper, cucumber, onions, leeks, asparagus, artichokes, rutabagas, turnips, radishes.

      – Fruits: bananas, apples, pears, peaches, melons, avocados, prunes, raisins

        Rye– Whole grains, particularly whole wheat and bran. Rice produces the least intestinal gas of any of the staple grains.

          – Soft drinks and fruit juice.

            Banana Split– Milk products: ice cream, off-the-shelf foods containing milk. Can be debilitating to the lactose intolerant. Cultured milk products (e.g., yogurt, kefir, etc.) tend to be less troublesome gaswise, after your body becomes accustomed to them – a person who has just begun using these cultured products may experience bloating and gas from the probiotic action, but this tends to subside over time. Aged cheeses (swiss, parmesan, etc.) tend to also be less troublesome; other cheeses like sandwich Jack (as opposed to aged Gassy mintsJack, which is a hard, grating cheese) or Mozarella, which are not aged, may be “highly problematic” (Phhhhrrrrrrrrrrrrtttt).

              – Foods containing the artificial sweeteners sorbitol or mannitol (sorbitol does a real number on me, I have discovered).
