I've heard that summer squash (yellow squash and zucchini) are low on gas production. Does anyone know?
I am reading that all things containing carbohydrates/starches including potatoes, corn, noodles, and wheat, produce gas as they are broken down in the large intestine. Rice is the only starch that does not cause gas.
Soluble fiber such as found in oat bran, beans, barley, nuts, seeds, lentils, peas, and most fruits, cause gas in the large intestine.
The subject is important to those who have had a Nissen or other type of operation to tighten the LES, because we can't burp gas from the stomach, and this adds to the natural intestinal gas from foods, which causes a lot of pain.
I am pretty much avoiding all starches and sugars, except rice. I'm getting no help from my doctors!
