Good evening dock, I want to ask. This may be less related to medicine, but maybe doctors know why. My question is why if we eat boiled corn or boiled cassava can reduce the frequency of farts compared to consuming roasted corn or roasted cassava? In fact, what I know is that nuts and nuts often cause farts. Thank you dock

Hello Natasya,


Thank you for the question.

Some food ingredients can indeed produce more gas when consumed, for example beans (including corn), tubers (including cassava, sweet potatoes, taro), mustard greens, cabbage, and so on. Therefore, after consuming these foods, you can become more belching, bloating, and also passing wind. Not only the influence of the type of food, the way food processing can also affect the gas content in it. Foods that are processed by burning or frying tend to contain more gas than the meanings whose processing is boiled or steamed. So, your question is very reasonable.


As long as your stomach doesn't feel great pain, and vomiting, diarrhea, and other more severe complaints don't appear, this condition is often not dangerous and doesn't require special treatment. Conversely, if these complaints arise, your condition could indicate a disease, such as intestinal inflammation, gastroenteritis, irritable bowel syndrome, food allergies, malabsorption, poisoning, and so on. If this is the case, you need to have yourself checked by a doctor or internist in order to be treated properly.


Hope this helps ...
