Avoiding food sources to get rid of smelly gases

There are multiple causes and multiple factors that lead to the discomfort of bloating. Of course, these factors include food and, in particular, certain sources that contribute to the formation of malodorous gas. Top 5 foods to try to reduce or eliminate if you are prone to bloating:


Both natural and artificial. Certain complex sugars, found particularly in onions and cabbage and most fruits, often cause gas and bloating. Artificial sugars, such as in sodas or chewing gum, can also promote intestinal gas production. Nitrogen found in cabbage or beans is another cause of bloating.

Dairy products.

Milk and other dairy products contain lactose, a sugar that is sometimes poorly digested and can cause gas and bloating. If you experience gas or bloating, try stopping dairy for 1 to 2 weeks to see if things improve. Then you may be suffering from lactose intolerance. A disease that can be easily cured.


Most starchy foods like potatoes, wheat, or pasta can cause bloating. An exception is rice, which should be consumed without moderation.

Soluble Fibers.

These dietary fibers, which are particularly found in apples, beans, oranges or tangerines, are particularly difficult to digest and can lead to flatulence. Since high-fiber foods are often excellent for health, the focus will be more on reducing consumption and not avoiding dietary supplements.

Soft drinks.

Fizzy drinks like sodas can also cause gas and bloating.
