I feel like maybe I once asked this before, but I've forgotten. Forgive me if I have already!

How do you guys know which food causes farty-ness? Since almost everything I eat has that potential, I never know whether to blame today's lunch, last night's dinner, or a snack I had at some point. Any ideas on the 'time lapse' between?

I fart all. the. time. You learn to embrace it and to do stealth farts.

Foods that contain a lot of fiber and cruciferous veggies are common fartogens.

Oh sure, that part I understand! I guess I wasn't clear enough.

Let's say I have a broccoli/cauliflower salad for dinner one night, the next morning high-fiber cereal for breakfast, then at noon a bean burrito. If I get farty at 12:30pm, could the bean burrito be to blame that quickly?

Hope that makes more sense :)

I wish I knew. My biggest factor in gas is my sad infrequency in the pooping department in general.

I love this thread, this is a common problem I have had vegan and non-vegan...weak stomach runs in the family. Does anyone have recommendations for probiotics/enzymes to take?

I have an anti-recommendation: Don't buy dimethicone and forget to check if it is in gelatin capsules! I'm not used to checking labels yet... (If you find any that is vegan though, the stuff works ok.)

I've been Farty McFly recently and I avoid fibre up to a point... I think higher protein intake makes me windypop.

From what I remember from nutrition class, it takes a minimum of 3 hours for food to get from your mouth to your colon, often more, so people often mis-attribute those problems to the wrong foods. If you really want to know what's causing you the problem, don't eat the broccoli, cabbage, and beans on the same day. Eat broccoli one day, beans the next, cabbage the next, like an elimination diet, to see what you are more sensitive to. But that is kind of a bore, so if it isn't painful gas maybe just fart and get on with it.
