Which foods cause you to fart the most? On a mission to find the gassiest foods? Look no further you will find the answers below!
1. Dried Apricots
For their pure fart inducing power few foods are gassier than dried apricots. Dried apricots derive their fartiness from their concentration of sugar and fiber which the bacteria in your gut thrive on.
This comment from this old blog post says it all.
Last few days I was getting the worse wind I ever had in my life and I did not know what was doing it, but after eliminating different foods it turns out it was the Dried apricots, On one morning I must have eaten half of a kg bag of Dried apricots and have the most embarrassing day of my life with most powerful wind humanly possible and could hear that churning noise going on in my guts for 24 hours.
Eevery situation was a total embarrassment I was red in the face with embarrassment and shame and I was getting some really bad looks and even some hurtful words was said to me that day, I really like to put that day behind me, so to speak!
Why are Dried apricots so powerful?
2. Kashi Go Lean Crunch Ceral
Eat a bowl of Kashi Go Lean Crunch cereal and you are guaranteed to expel hours of violent gas. I once made the mistake of eating a bowl with a few dried apricots on top. Let’s just say the results were mind and butt numbing.
There are almost 500 comments on this blog discussing the farts this cereal can create. This is one of my favorites!
The kind of gas I’ve been experiencing thanks to this product is too fierce to comprehend. I can’t believe they would manufacture a product like this, after this thread that I read. Where was the testing and sample survey for this? Surely someone said something about this. And this doesn’t look like anything new… It appears that this thread dates back Pre-Obama. It’s February 2016. Unreal. I’m a schoolteacher and I can’t tell you how much more of a living hell my life is been thanks to the cereal.
Talk about holding in- and sweating bullets trying not to let out explosive farts in the middle of a classroom full of kids. I brought a pillow just to put in my chair so that I can suppress my farts like a bullet exiting silenced rifle. Meanwhile my kids are wondering what in the hell is wrong with me, and why I have started teaching from my desk chair. Little do they know that my rear is, at a moments notice, ready to Pompeii their little worlds.
And every fart feels like I’m trying to push a watermelon through a garden hose… Excruciating. Oh, and if you really want to make things thermonuclear, just add one or 2 cups of coffee, black, no sugar or dairy necessary. Enjoy the flatulence hallocaust that will undoubetedly ensue. PS what ingredient is it?? I’d like to steer clear of it.
3. Sugar Free Gummi Bears
Beans are known as the original gas producer for good reason. They are high in raffinose which is hard for the body to digest and beans also have a large amount of soluble fiber.
Once beans reach the large intestine the bacteria thrive on it and ferment raffinose into large quantities of hydrogen, methane and other fun gases. Some of the worst offenders are chickpeas, black beans, pinto beans, and baked beans.
Carbonated beverages like soda, and especially sugar-free diet sodas can wreak havoc on your digestion and cause gassiness.
This popular and trendy super food has great health benefits and some “interesting” side effects for some. According to this blogger the farts outweigh the benefits.
Speaking of farts, how did kale suddenly become this big trendy superfood when it basically makes your butthole play “Flight of the Bumblebee” for like FIVE HOURS after you eat it? Fine, maybe that’s just me, but as far as I’m concerned kale can suck it. Especially those depressing dried chunks people keep trying to pass off as a viable junk food substitute. You’re not fooling anyone, kale chips.
Add 3 tablespoons to a glass of water and wait for the fun thanks to the high fiber content.
8. Protein Shakes
Protein can be hard for your body to digest. When it is broken down, it emits different gasses like nitrogen, methane, and hydrogen sulfide. Hence the infamous stinky protein shake farts.
9. Jerusalem Artichoke
Also known as sunchokes are known as being one of the gassiest foods in the world. Hard to find but fun to experiment with. They are even nicknamed “fartichokes”.
10. Chewing Gum
Chewing gum makes you swallow air and what goes in must come out!
Broccoli is a member of the cabbage family which included kale and cauliflower. Similar to beans, broccoli contains a sugar called raffinose that human beings are unable to break down. Bacteria in the large intestine attempt to break this down and during the process can produce a large amount of gas.
