bananas have me in absolute agony from gas once it's hit the intestines. Ugh! Apparently less ripe are less gassy...haven't tried that, however.
Veggies and fruits will help loosen the stool, increase peristalsis..etc. In other words, they're important in our diet to help decrease the incidence of constipation and lazy gut. The problem is that one needs to consume other foods to create a good stool.
One can try Beano (just suggested from my GI)...it can help lessen some of the discomfort. It could be that one is eating too many veggies or fruits...sometimes cooking them makes it easier on an inflamed gut
Trial and error. Not all things agree with all people, regardless of having bowel disease or not.
