Why does eating beans make you windy?

  1. Good question! In this section, HealthNet will look for the answers to gnawing questions. This time: Why does eating beans make you windy?

  1. Beans are legumes. Just like peas, lentils, sprouts and peanuts. Legumes are healthy. They can be a source of carbohydrates, serve as a vegetable or as a meat substitute. Legumes, including beans, only have one major disadvantage: they can promote flatulence. Beans contain carbohydrates that are not completely digested and absorbed in the small intestine. They end up unchanged in the colon where they are processed (fermented) by the intestinal flora. Additional gassing is the result.
