I found this info at work yesterday and thought it might be helpful. WHAT FOODS ARE THE WORST OFFENDERS?Beans (all types), milk and milk products may be the worst offenders in causing gas. Others include onions, celery, carrots, raisins, apricots, prune juice, wheat products and brussel sprouts.THE CARBOHYDRATE ELIMIATION DIETIndividuals with excessive flatus who are determined to reduce it may find the following plan helpful: Before: you begin: If you are an air swallower, which means a large percentage of your flatus is swallowed air, this plan will not help you. Fist, you must stop swallowing air, next, severely restrict all carbohydrates in your diet. Use the following low gas producing foods as your basic diet while you test your intestines reaction.1. meat, fowl and fish2. Vegetables - lettuce, cucmber, broccoli, peppers, avocado, cauliflower, tomato, asparagus, zucchini.3. Fruits- cantaloupe, grapes, berries4. Carbohydrates- rice, corn, graham crackers5. all nuts6. others- eggs, nonmilk chocolate, jello, fruit ice.Then: introduce one category of carbohydrate into your diet for three days. Eat plenty of the carbohydrate during that time. If your find a marked change of flatus production you have discovered one food culprit.Major carbohydrate categories are:milk and milk productsbeansfruitspotatoes and root vegetablescabbage and leafy vegetableswheat and other grainsAs far as the reducing swallowing air, they suggest no gum, hard candy, smoking, carbonated beverages. Eat slowly and sip fluids.I think I am going to try to go on this diet and see if it helps. Last night I had an ice cream and I had the worst gas all evening. It was so embarassing! I looked at the ingredients of the ice cream and guess what was in it, carrageenan. That is one of the gas producing amino acids (I think) that Flux posted.Hope this is of some help.
