There was just posted a good medical video article about what causes gas bloating.  http://www.medscape.com/viewarticle/729672?src=ptalk&uac=113325DT
 
The parts that interested me were:
Causes -  swallowing air, maldigestion of complex carbohydrates and sugars, celiac and gallbladder diseases, lactose intolerance.
 
In the sugars and carbs maldigestion were included - soluble fiber, Splenda and Equal, various sugars including maltitol and the others in dietetic foods, and complex carbohydrates.
 
Some of the cures are - adding live culture (not frozen) yogurt 3xday, probiotics, and taking Rifaximin (especially if there is diarrhea).
 
I've been using a lot of Splenda, taking soluble fiber, and I'm having a bad time since fundo with bloating.  I wonder if the problem with Splenda is not the ingredient itself but the dextrose filler???  Dextrose is just righthanded glucose.
