Hi everyone,Ive just spent a really long time researching gas/bloating on the internet, at the library and buying books. Ive noticed that there seems to be ALOT of contradictions everywhere. In some the recommend certain foods and in others they claim it to be a trigger food. Its a bit confusing. But so far I have comprised this list of possible foods that WONT produce gas and bloating.MeatPoultryFishAvacadoWaterBatsami RiceGluten Free BreadRice Pasta, Noodles and BreadJellyRice CakesCooked/Boiled CarrotsCooked ApplesGingerYoghurt (with live cultures)Lime JuiceCooked Potatos- Chew slowly- Small meals- No chewing gum, smoking and alcohol.What do you guys think of that list of foods. Do you think any of those are wrong or do you know of any more foods I can add that are SAFE foods.Any help would be greatly appreciated...... I really am very lost on what food to eat and not eat.

http://www.gicare.com/pated/edtgs12.htm has the list of no-no foods so there should be a lot more you can eat. Most things list the bad foods, not the good foods, so your list might be overly restrictive.Fruit wise see http://www.askdrsears.com/html/4/t042600.asp that may add a few fruits.Generally cooking fruits helps, but some fruits like white grapes should be OK on their own.I'm not sure you need to stick to Basmati Rice, I would guess that all rices should be OK, and based on Glycemic index (which may indicate who has the least amount of resistant starch) I might try Jasmine rice. It tends to go straight to the blood stream the fastest.http://www.aboutincontinence.org/Gas.html also lists a few more safe foods that you do not have on your list.K.

i must say- I agree it is confusing- I guess you have to try and see- I have tried every combination- cut out wheat, dairy, brocollai, oranges(acidy, tomatoes) and I still struggle w/ gas. Please keep in touch- curious to see what else you pin down on your search.
