I can't see how it would cause gas, but it could alter how gas is moving through the system.Probiotics (acidophilus, etc) can reduce gas as can products containing simethicone (your mileage may vary).Limiting gas producing foods can be helpful.Some examples areLactose (dairy and some prepared foods)Raffinose (beans-they aren't called the musical fruit--the more you eat the more you toot-for no reason and cabbage family veggies)Fructose (primarily the high fructose corn syrup in soft drinks)Sorbitol (sugar free sweets and gum and apples, pears. peaches, prunes, and apricots)Starch. Rice is OK, other starches can cause gas.K.------------------I have no financial, academic, or any other stake in any commercial product mentioned by me.My story and what worked for me in greatly easing my IBS: http://www.ibsgroup.org/ubb/Forum17/HTML/000015.html
