Why Does Milk Make You Fart--

Lactose sensitivity fartingWhen your body isnít producing enough of the lactase enzyme in your small intestine, lactose in the food you eat or the products you drink like milk pass through to your large intestine undigested....

Certain bacteria in your colon love milk sugar and will quickly go to work fermenting it. This process creates a lot of gas and, due to the high levels of protein in milk, it is usually much smellier flatulence than that produced by the fermentation of the raffinose in beans

These extra gases in the gastrointestinal system can cause all sorts of problems and discomfort, from bloating and intestinal cramps and spasms, to diarrhea when pressure from flatus gas interferes with water absorption in the colon, and of course excessive flatulence!

In some respects, farting after drinking milk and getting the gas out before it causes any more problems is the best thing that can happen. Not very comforting I know if it comes on during an office meeting or on a date'

This process usually happens quite quickly and some individuals can experience flatulence after drinking milk in as little as 15 to 20 minutes. If they are going to have symptoms, most people will usually experience them within an hour of having milk if they are lactose sensitive

Which makes you wonder why, if lactose is such an obvious cause of flatulence and it happens so quickly, why are milk products and other sources of lactose still so popular? Why havenít we worked out on a larger scale that milk makes you fart?'

Itís likely many people can get away with a small amount of milk, perhaps the amount they splash on their cereal in the morning (though surely nutritious hemp milk is a much better choice here). But then, with their lactase enzyme stores depleted, any of the many other sources of lactose weíll cover next have the potential to cause gastrointestinal issues

Since food containing lactose travels through the digestive tract much slower than liquid, it may be many hours before symptoms appear. Someone who can have milk in the morning without obvious problems, but then ends up gassy in the evening from the lactose rich lunch he ate, may never make the connection between the two....wet FARTS'
