What vegetables cause gas?


Q. would like a list of vegetables that are known to cause gas.thank you


A. Adding more fiber to your diet from fruit, vegetables, beans, or whole grains can cause temporary gas that may decrease over time (roughly 2-4 weeks) as your body adjusts. The amount of gas will vary from individual to individual. It’s important to eat fruit and vegetables, not only because of the fiber, but the many other important nutrients and beneficial compounds that we don’t even fully understand yet. The following tips may also help prevent gas:

  • Eat more slowly
  • Chew food thoroughly
  • Walk for 10-15 minutes after eating
  • Do not chew gum
  • Do not drink carbonated beverages
  • Avoid artificial sweeteners, such as sorbitol and mannitol, found in some sugar-free foods, gums and candies.
