The British newspaper “The Sun” published a report saying that there are foods that cause stomach bloating. Stomach bloating causes a feeling of discomfort, but it is a normal part of life that can be triggered by the foods that we include in our diet. Bloating occurs when carbohydrates cannot be properly digested by the small intestine, causing the stomach to turn around. And many people who suffer from food allergies are prone to bloating, so if a person often suffers from this condition, he must consult a doctor. But if he follows a healthy lifestyle and a balanced diet, this should be sufficient to control bloating. But if this condition continues for long, then there are some foods that may cause bloating, according to nutrition expert Nick Hay, who said that there are a number of foods that those suffering from bloating should avoid, including processed foods that are changed and processed and will often include adhesives and chemicals. Bad. And if you eat a lot of processed meals, it can cause your stomach to swell.
Processed foods “include soft drinks, cereals, sweets, potato chips, cakes and anything else not produced by nature,” Nick explained to the medical specialist site Healthista Nick. This means that the best bet to help your bloated stomach is to eat foods that are natural or very close to their original natural state such as fish, eggs and whole grains. And nuts, green and dark leafy vegetables. “
Other foods that cause bloating are wheat and corn because they contain fructans. These are the carbohydrates that many people find difficult to digest.
Fructans are found in products such as bread, pasta, onions, garlic, barley, pistachios and broccoli.
And many people who think their stomachs are bloated due to an intolerance to gluten are actually bothered by fructans.
The reason for this, experts say, is that when carbohydrates cannot be absorbed, they are fermented by gut bacteria. This causes gas and bloating.
Regarding the best foods to avoid, I suggest wheat-based starchy foods including bread, pasta, pizza, cereals, crackers, etc., says Kim Pearson, a nutritionist at The Sun.
These foods are usually highly processed and there are a number of ways that contribute to bloating. “Gluten can be a problem even for those without celiac disease, and wheat is also a high-FODMAP food (a short chain of carbohydrates that is poorly absorbed in the small intestine).
As well as excessive drinking of alcohol may also cause bloating. Because drinking alcohol – according to Nick – causes inflammation and swelling in the body, which may lead to flatulence. Adding that it can also cause high levels of the hormone estrogen in women, which leads to weight gain.
And don’t forget to eat sugar, as it can be one of the most difficult things to get rid of in the diet. This is because “too much sugar can lead to an imbalance of beneficial bacteria and harmful bacteria in our gut, which may lead to bloating and excessive gas.”
“Fructose or fruit sugar is added to many processed foods, and it may be difficult for many people to digest, which leads to bloating. Be aware that sugar substitutes such as sweeteners can cause gas and bloating,” said Nick, a nutritional expert. In addition to the actual sugar, Nick said sweeteners should be avoided as they may cause bloating and diarrhea.
Finally, dairy products contain lactose, which is difficult for the body to digest. And if you want to combat bloating, then you should avoid products like ice cream, cheese and milk.
And substituting soy products may help stop bloating. And people who are lactose intolerant do not have enough enzymes in their bodies to break down the sugars produced by most dairy products.
High dairy products can also settle in the stomach for a while and can cause unwanted stomach fat.
Experts recommend using herbs and spices to combat inflammation and bloating, such as cardamom, cumin, fennel, ginger, turmeric, and cinnamon, as they can be added to foods or taken in herbal teas to help relieve bloating.
