IBS Diet: 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 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.
