5. Broccoli and Other Cruciferous Vegetables

The cruciferous vegetable family includes broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage, and brussels sprouts among others. They are naturally healthy (good source fiber, vitamin C, vitamin K, iron, and potassium).

Like beans and lentils, cruciferous vegetables also contain FODMAPs, and can cause bloating in some people.

There are many possible alternatives, including spinach, cucumbers, lettuce, sweet potatoes and zucchini.

6. Onions

Bulbs like onions are sources of fructans. Fructans are soluble fibers that can cause bloating.

There are also other compounds in onions that can adversely affect some people and cause some digestive problems like bloating among others.  

Try using fresh herbs or spices as an alternative to onions instead.
