Skip these foods that cause gas…

First, be careful with sugar-free gum. It contains sorbitol – which takes a long time to digest. And undigested sorbitol in your small intestine acts as hothouse, fermenting bacteria, which can cause flatulence.

Also, skip protein bars that contain soy. Processed soy-isolate contains sugar molecules that the body can’t break down entirely. So they hang out in the gut, fermenting, and causing gas and bloating.

One more gas-inducing food: Almond milk! It can contain a thickening agent called carrageenan. It’s made from seaweed, and it’s been linked to ulcers, inflammation, and other gastrointestinal problems.
