Can Avocado Cause Gas?


Carbohydrate foods are the primary cause of gas for many people because they are not normally eaten to the same degree as protein, fat, or salad vegetables are. Yeast in the mouth often live on carbohydrates which produce bubbles of air that also provide sustenance for them, leading to an exceptionally strong ability to produce gas if allowed into other parts of the gastrointestinal tract. The beneficial bacteria present there pick up this job to a lessened degree and can’t keep up with this additional burden if enough carbohydrate is consumed. This leads to more gas production which may be associated with cramping, bloating and flatulence.
