(NaturalNews) If you are suffering from flatulence or bloating due to too much gas in your stomach, you are in the right place because this article will give you some examples of foods that are less likely to cause flatulence. It does not only make you feel uncomfortable, but it can also be embarrassing if you release gas in a crowd, especially if it is loud and smelly.

Most articles focus on the list of foods that causes flatulence. These are foods that have high carbohydrate contents, especially when they are not properly chewed and digested. However, it may be impossible to avoid all these foods because most of the nutritious foods that your body requires can cause flatulence. What you can do instead is to focus on the foods that are less likely to cause flatulence. Here are six food groups that you can eat without worrying about suffering from flatulence.

1. Non-gassy proteins

Foods that are rich in protein do not really cause flatulence, except when they are not properly chewed and digested. There are some protein-rich foods that do not give off too much gas like grass fed lean beef, white meat like chicken and turkey, hard cheese, peanut butter, fish, and eggs. These foods are not only stomach-friendly. They are also good for people who are on a diet.

2. Vegetables with low carbohydrates

The main culprit as to why people suffer from stomach gas problems is carbohydrates. This is why it is important to eat low carbohydrate foods like low carbohydrate vegetables since you cannot completely avoid carbohydrates in your diet. Some examples of carbohydrates are carrots, celery, cucumber, fennel, eggplant, green beans, herbs, greens, mushrooms, okra, pumpkin, radicchio, scallions, snow peas, tomatoes, zucchini, chives, and peppers.

3. Fruits with low sugar content

Sugars found in fruits are known to cause flatulence. This type of sugar is called fructose. What you can do is to eat fruits with low sugar content like apples, certain berries, apricots, guavas, melons, grapefruit, pears, peaches, papayas, lime, lemon, plums, kiwis, watermelons, and nectarines. It is better to eat these fruits raw. Canned fruits may have additional sugar content that may cause bloating and flatulence.

4. Wheat alternatives

Wheat is difficult to digest, which is why it is one of the main causes of flatulence. You can still enjoy bread, pasta, and other foods by using wheat alternatives like corn, rice, millet, and wild rice. You can also use quinoa flour for baking bread and nut meal for cookies and cakes. Instead of choosing pasta made of wheat, you can use pasta that comes from rice, corn, or quinoa flour.

5. Dairy substitutes

Lactose is another form of sugar that can cause discomfort to your stomach. You can eat dairy substitutes made from soya like cheese, yogurts, and desserts; milk made from oat, almond, rice, and soya; and yeast flakes.

6. Avocado, humus, tahini, and guacamole

For sandwich spreads and salad dressings, you can use these foods that do not cause flatulence. They are also healthier than other kinds of spreads and dressings.
