WHY DO BEANS MAKE YOU FART?
There is a universal truth, farts make you laugh - most of the time. This is also accompanied by another truth that beans make you fart - butt why does this happen?
How is it that beans can produce unsavoury gases when, say, rice produces none at all? The secret lies in the bacteria that is present in your gut!
That being the case, these complex sugars pass untouched through the small intestine and so gain entry to the large intestine still bearing its valuable energy. Specialist bacteria in the large-intestine are able to break down these complex sugars, but as a by product of this metabolism they let out hydrogen, nitrogen and carbon dioxide gas. In essence, your gut accumulates millions of tiny bacterial blow-offs! Once the gases produced by the bacteria have reached a critical pressure within the gut, it is released - unceremoniously - out of your bum.
And that is why beans make you fart - I thank you!
