I searched and I couldn't find a thread about this already. If there is, please lock mine up. :-)

What gives you gas, and what do you do about it? For me, it's marinara sauce, and specific brands of soy milk (not all of them) and tofu. Also I get mysterious gas without being sure what is causing it.

I avoid taking meds, so I just deal with it. What about you?

I have no idea what makes mine better/worse, but I felt I should let you know that my boyfriend told me I woke him up last night because my fart smelled so disgusting. Lovely.

Flatulence is one of my favorite words. Just sayin.

Food. I'm a big farter.
Is that TMI even for the PPK?

Never TMI. I'm the same. I don't even know how I would go about figuring out what makes me fart. I just constantly fart, no matter what I eat, it seems.

I hate popping pills, but I might have to find something for my flatulence issues. On some days it's just unacceptably bad.

You can generally reduce flatulence if you avoid common allergens like gluten, chew your food and avoid the cruciferous veggies (brussel sprouts, cabbage, broccoli). But then what will form the musical accompaniment to the movie that is your life?

over the past few months I have discovered that excessive gluten, refined sugar and undercooked beans/lentils all do it for me. Which kinda sucks, I must have been tooting my way through life without realising how much until recently. Or is it possible to become sensitive to foods over time?

The refined sugar thing is the worst, more than half a cupcake is instant flatulence!

Pretty much all food. If you want to stop farting all the time, start taking a probiotic. I drink a Good Belly everyday, and it knocked my farting down to almost nothing.

I was going to start a thread about this today. Mine are so bad and I work in an open office I have to hold it all day long. By the time I get home poor hubby. On some days it is so bad I can't stand myself. I wake myself up. I've been vegan for 6 years so it's not a matter of getting used to added fiber. Nothing helps. Tried adding the seeweed while cooking beans, other spices, probiotic, nothing. At first I took beano but found out it is not vegan, nor can I take this stuff forever.

Would pay dearly to find out how to get rid of this problem! And it is a problem when you are around people. They always make vegetarian jokes.

any particular probiotic? The stuff in the capsules? Not even sure if the caps are vegan, and there are so many different kinds out there it seems. I take one capsule ever few days. Perhaps it's not enough? Not sure if they are all equally good. I can't ge that Good Belly stuff here.

I take them as directed on the bottle. The one I have now is one-a-day but the others were twice daily.

I use this: http://www.naturesway.com/Products/Probiotics/15652-Primadophilus-Optima.aspx

The caps are vegetable based, but it says there may a minimal residual amount of dairy or soy protein. That's within my vegan margin of error but it's not a sure thing.

I'm also told gas increases as you get into your thirties. I've found that to be true. Sometimes I have it bad. I teach middle school and move around the class a lot. One may slip out and I just sweep to the other side of the room. Some poor kid gets blamed. The ones who know that it's me are too respectful to say anything.

Soy yogurt is giving it to me, since I've started eating it every morning. Poor, poor co workers.

I've found that drinking aloe helps - seriously, they sell aloe vera juice. I've tried a few different kinds, the best was Noni juice that I got at t.j. maxx, completely liquid and almost tasteless, now I'm taking the pulpy kind from Fred Meyer. It doesn't taste great but it really helps. You take 1 oz (2 T, or more if you can stand it) before eating, and even when I eat at baja fresh I have little to no incidence.

Also drinking a lot of water throughout the day helps, not drinking much fruit juice or carbonated drinks, eating a variety of food and not too much of one food (like soy), not over eating, etc. (ya know, all the healthy stuff).

Yeah, I'm a fan of the probiotics. They're not a "medication", so there's no reason to avoid taking a supplement (just as, I hope, you take a B12 supplement). Taking a probiotic also helps chronic yeast infections. Win-win.

The only downside is that they're expensive ($20 for 80 tablets). WF carries a vegan bottle.

Seitan and lentils.

For probiotics, I use Kyodophilus's vegetarian formula, because back when I first started taking them (2005), that was the only (vegan) brand I could find that didn't need to be kept in the fridge.

I have now decided to buy probiotics for my fella! Hopefully that'll do the trick. Poor guy has an uncomfortable tum almost always.
