Do green leafy vegetables cause gas?


Answer by  annie52foof (1459)

I would say any vegetable has the possibility of producing gas. It depends on how each person's digestive system specifically handles certain foods.

Depending on what you consider leafy. There are green vegetables that cause gas and lots of it! They are in the Cruciferous category of veggies. These include cabbage, brussel sprouts, cauliflower, and broccoli. More commonly considered leafy green vegetables like lettuce, spinach and kale don't cause a lot of gas at all.

Eating a large volume of green leafy vegetables can cause gas if you are not accustomed to the roughage. They contain a lot of fiber, which will make your digestive tract pass more material more quickly, including gas.

No. Leafy green vegetables are one of the best foods for our body to digest. They are really good for you and our body can process them easily.

Anything with a high concentration of fiber is going to cause some amount of gas. That includes leafy greens like spinach and arugula. Fiber is more difficult for the body to break down.
