Which ones you may want to avoid

(HealthDay News) - Some of the yummiest foods tend to produce gas as they make their way through the digestive tract.

Here are some potential offenders, courtesy of the National Digestive Diseases Clearinghouse:

  • Several types of sugars, such as those found in milk, cheese, ice cream and other dairy products, fruits, some vegetables, and sodas.
  • Starchy foods, such as pasta, potatoes, corn and wheat.
  • Fiber-rich foods, including whole grains, fruits, beans and peas.
  • Cabbage, broccoli, onions, artichokes and asparagus.
  • Some processed foods -- especially those that contain lactose -- such as bread, salad dressings and cereals.
