9. Dairy Products

Dairy products like milk, cheese, yogurt, and butter are excellent source of protein and calcium. However, about 75% of the world’s population can’t break down lactose, the sugar found in milk. This condition is known as lactose intolerance.

For individuals with lactose intolerance, dairy can cause major digestive problems such as bloating, gas, cramping, and diarrhea.

People who are lactose intolerant can sometimes handle cream and butter, or fermented dairy like yogurt. To be sure,  try lactose-free milk products, or alternative milk products like coconut, almond, soy, or rice milk.

10. Apples

Apples are high in fiber, vitamin C, and antioxidants. Apples have also been linked with a range of health benefits.

However, apples are also high in fructose (which is a FODMAP) and fiber. Fructose and fiber can both be fermented in the large intestine, and may cause gas and bloating.

Cooked apples may be easier to digest than fresh ones. If you really abhor bloating more than you love your apples, well you can try other fruits such as bananas, blueberries, grapefruit, mandarins, oranges or strawberries.
