Question of the Day: Do bell peppers cause bloating?
Quick Answer: Yes, bell peppers can cause bloating.
A major cause of bloating is the bacterial breakdown or fermenting of carbs that reach the colon. Bell peppers are rich in fiber and contain some sugars that may be difficult for your stomach to absorb. These move through your system and get stored; guess where.
The fermentation action in the colon releases methane and hydrogen gas and causes bloating.
