smitharoo..welcome to the forum.
I get lots of gas from soy products. I only eat tofu in chinese foods...normally nothing else soy based.
One thing...soy has estrogen in it...so, for those women who have hormone sensitive UC symptoms..it could exacerbate them.
The peanut butter is difficult to digest...and if it bothers your stomach, you could have a reflux problem. How much pb to you eat and on what? Is it on an empty stomach? Is it natural pb or is it skippy or other brands that have other oils and sugars in them? I'd suggest you try one that has peanuts only...President's choice is awesome..but natural pbs are easy to get.
please tell us more about
you, your UC and what meds you're on..etc.
