Flatulence and gas products
What is flatulence
Flatulence is a condition associated with excessive accumulation of gases in the intestine. As a result of the digestion of a particular food, final products (waste) are formed in the human body, including methane, hydrogen sulfide, carbon monoxide, ammonia and hydrogen. At the same time, in the large intestine, bacteria that provoke the processes of decay and fermentation begin to act on those food particles that did not have time to digest.As a result of all this, the release of an additional volume of gases, which stretch the walls of the gastrointestinal tract. Abdominal distension, soreness and rumbling appear. One of the main reasons provoking the development of flatulence, are gas-forming products and their wrong combination. Numerous studies and tests have shown that the amount of carbon monoxide, methane, ammonia, hydrogen sulfide and hydrogen formed during the digestion process is different for one type of food or another. For this reason, when treating flatulence, it is always necessary to pay attention to gas-forming products and try to avoid them, especially those of them.which have the greatest impact.
Products that cause bloating
Traditionally, gas-generating foods are divided by nutritionists into three main groups: potent, moderately active, and slightly effective. The first includes beans, beans, soybeans, dried peas, cabbage of various varieties (broccoli, cauliflower, white cabbage, kohlrabi), turnips, rutabaga, raw onions, whole milk and other dairy products. The second group includes such gas-forming products as a variety of carbonated drinks, kvass, carrots, celery, raisins, apples, watermelons, pears, bananas, mushrooms, cereals, bread and products made from flour. Finally, the third group includes eggs, rice, fish, poultry, meat products, vegetable oils and potatoes.
Diet with flatulence
In the event that a person suffers from a disease such as flatulence, nutritionists advise to follow a certain diet and to eliminate as much as possible from the diet products that contribute to gas formation. Particular attention should be paid to those vegetables that are in the first group and have the strongest impact.In addition, a very important role is played by a combination of certain products, since as a result of an incorrectly composed menu, meteorism can also be observed. For example, gas products such as milk and cottage cheese should not be eaten with meat, fish, sour fruits, or bread. Sweets and juices are poorly combined with protein, starch and salty foods, and the use of carbonated drinks and kvass should be postponed for the afternoon time. The main point in the prevention, as well as in the treatment of flatulence is properly adjusted nutrition. It is best to eat in small portions, strictly according to the regime, observing the degree of heat treatment of the original ingredients. It is necessary to eat only benign and freshly prepared food.
