Firstly, remember that it doesn't hit the colon initially. The digestion for beef would take longer than other foods, so by the time it hits the colon...it's been in the digestive tract for a while.
But, you may have an inability to break down the proteins in beef or other meats.
I would suggest firstly, that you try a digestive enzyme to help break it down. If that doesn't help...then nix it from your diet.
Damo..what symptoms are you having from the beef? How is it prepared when you're eating it?
