Zero carb=zero gas. I have narrowed it down to Zero fructose=zero gas. Take Pepto or Devrom with each meal for odor. Pepto is constipating. Devrom isn't. I have not tried Devrom but people on the gas forum seem to have had luck with it. I find Gas-X helps to eliminate gas which is already there in the system and it has helped me even on the rare occasions that the gas is continuous. Somee probiotics depending on your individual bacterial population might help with volume of gas.

The smell is caused by the sulphate reducing bacteria in the colon. Some people have the non-odorous kind called methanogenic bacteria. Probiotics if the kind suited for your flora might replace the smelly gas producing kind to atleast non-gas producing. There are many Probiotics- vsl3 at http://www.vsl3.com,[/URL] culturelle at http://www.culturelle.com. Digestive Advantage is the cheapest and is available in Walgreen's. PB8 and Jarradophilus are some of the others. You need to try a few different kinds before you find one which is just right for your bacterial population.
