Flatulence is a common abdominal
discomfort due to the presence of air or
gas in the stomach or intestines
associated with motility disorder of the
intestinal tract. Gas can be expelled
from the intestinal tract either as
belching from the stomach or as flatus
from the rectum.
Air is swallowed with
food, while gas is formed by
fermentation of the food in the stomach.
Air swallowing is due to faulty eating
habits. The fermentation of food in the
stomach and intestine occurs when the
diet contains large amount of fiber and
also due to infestation and infections.
DIETARY MANAGEMENT OF FLATULENCE
• Food should not include high amounts
of fibrous vegetables, pulses, legumes,
• Overeating should be avoided.
• Foods rich in non-available
carbohydrates should be restricted.
• Excessive consumption of spices and
condiments should be avoided.
• Fried or fatty foods should be avoided
as they stay longer in the stomach
leading to fermentation.
