Readers Respond: What is Your Most Gassy Food?

Responses: 56


Updated October 01, 2012

We all have them –- certain foods that we know will leave us gassy! We eat them because we love them or because we know they are good for us, but when we do we usually end up paying later. Tell us what your most gassy foods are and find out what triggers intestinal gas in others.

Baked Elephant Garlic

I started crying the gas was so bad. The boyfriend took me out to a nice valentine's dinner in Ouray at which we had steak and delicious baked elephant garlic. Neither of us could sleep the stink kept oozing unrelentless stinging our eyes and gagging our mouths. I felt like the fart train ran me over, backed up, and ran me over again. For two days I wreaked of garlic and recovered my sore stomach and bung. Stay away unless you want to seriously damage someone.

What doesn't?

Salad, spinach, egg rolls, onions, wheat, dairy, chocolate, apples (with and w/o skin), Oregon Chai, pizza. I've had good luck with soy and almond milk, and oat products, but haven't found a fruit or vegetable that's nice to me yet : /

Bread kills me flat! Especially white bread. Processed meats are a real no-no! Good luck to us all.

gas and more gas

Cheese, beans, cashews, tomato-based vegetable soup, anything greasy or fatty, red meat, high fiber food, there are probably more, but that's enough!

Gassy foods.

It seems I get gas with about all my foods esp now since I've been diagnosed as being prediabetic ( more beans means more toots)! Am so glad @ times I live alone!!!!!

Holy guacamole!

Fresh avocado, especially guacamole. I don't mind being a little tooty for some good food, but avocado gives me the most awful pain in the gut along with some impressive bloating. So sad!
—Guest Bean

The good stuff

Fiber One Bars, most beans, cabbage, brussel sprouts, any leafy greens, any type of dairy, and wheat (causes awful acid reflux too).
—Guest Huh

sodas, broccoli, chicken

I love broccoli, but it hates me : ( and you wouldn't like me very much either, after a meal including chicken, broccoli, and diet soda ...or anything anymore.
—Guest daisy
